EKSPLA employees donate 50,000 Euros to the RADAROM! campaign

EKSPLA’s employees decided to donate a portion of their annual bonuses to the RADAROM! campaign. By mutual agreement, they allocated 25 thousand Euros from the bonus fund. The company, EKSPLA, itself contributed to the initiative by doubling the amount to 50 thousand Euros.

“We are proud of the initiative of our colleagues, and we hope it will inspire more photonics companies in Lithuania. Especially knowing that this war concerns all of us, as equally talented scientists, creators, and inventors dying every day in Ukraine, with their work taken into the abyss,” said Eglė Krištopavičiūtė-Grybauskė, chairwoman of the EKSPLA employee’s council.

For the second year in a row, the RADAROM! campaign invites donations to one cause – protecting the soldiers fighting for the freedom of Ukraine and the whole of Europe. protecting the soldiers who are fighting for the freedom of Ukraine and the whole of Europe. The funds raised during the campaign will be used to buy soldier protection packs. A pack will include a night vision monocular, a laser sight, and an individual anti-drone.

“Civic responsibility is an unofficial value of the company: for more than 30 years, we have been supporting various educational initiatives, we are among the founders of the Vilnius University Foundation, and patrons of Vilnius itself. Among our employees are members of the Lithuanian Riflemen’s Union and the Lithuanian National Defence Volunteer Forces, who contribute in one way or another to our security. In order to encourage their civic initiative, the company provides additional paid leave days for service purposes. Therefore, it is natural that the goals of RADAROM! are particularly important to us,” emphasized Aldas Juronis, CEO of EKSPLA.

The company has also allocated 50 thousand Euros in support of Ukraine in the early days of the war, immediately after severing all trade ties with Russia and the regime-supporting Belarus.
