The preservation of the cultural and patrimonial heritage of the John Cockerill Group is part of the role of the John Cockerill Foundation.

Since 2002, the Group's shareholders have always been committed to preserving the company's tangible and intangible heritage. The start of the restoration of the listed castle and its surroundings more than 10 years ago and its completion in 2017 is a great example of this. The participation of the John Cockerill Group in the urban revitalisation project of the City of Seraing is another.

Today, the John Cockerill Foundation intends to continue this approach by opening up the heritage spaces of the Château Cockerill in Seraing (Belgium) to the community, by managing donations and archives linked to John Cockerill and by supporting specific & educational projects on the history of the industrial group.
