We contribute to society
Merks considers it important to contribute to society. We focus on three areas of sponsorship: sports activities, engineering and construction education, and art and culture. Check out our support projects in different areas.
Skier Patricija Eiduka
Merks is a supporter of Latvia’s new talent – cross-country skier Patrīcija Eiduka – so that she can continue her professional growth. Patrīcija Eiduka is the only Latvian skier to have participated in the Winter Olympics at the age of 18 at the Pyeongchang 2018 Olympics. The young skier has also successfully competed in the 2016 Winter Youth Olympic Games in Lillehammer, the 2017 World Championships in cross-country skiing in Lahti and the 2018 World Championships for juniors, winning 10th place in the sprint.
The book “100 years of Latvian Construction”
In 2018, the book Construction in Latvia 1918–2018 was published in Latvia through the support of Merks. The three-volume book is an overview of the main buildings, events and people that have shaped and will shape the Latvian construction industry.
Career development campaign “Learn Construction”
Our team members participated in the annual construction campaign “Learn Construction”, where students and the general public are invited to get acquainted with outstanding construction specialists and important objects.
