Ms Hoffmeister-Kraut is currently visiting companies and institutes in the region in order to gain an insight into the region’s economic situation and power of innovation and to discuss key issues for the future, such as securing skilled personnel, digitalization and housing/urban development, with those at the heart of these issues.
In addition to a brief introduction to the company and a tour of the site, a discussion with elumatec CEO Ralf Haspel was a key part of the agenda for the Minister and her delegation.
“As a medium-sized industrial firm, it is important that we are aware of the political perspective on issues such as digitalization, Industry 4.0 and the skilled labour supply in our region, and it is also important that we share our practical experiences with politicians so that they can create the exact conditions required for businesses like us to thrive”, said Haspel.
