Prominent figures visit HARTING stand
05/06/2012 - This year’s Hannover Messe trade fair has closed its doors after a successful and eventful week.
The HARTING Technology Group welcomed German Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel and the Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao, who officially opened the Hannover Messe together on the previous day, to its stand right at the beginning of the trade fair on the first visitor day. China is the partner country of the annual trade fair this year and a large Chinese delegation therefore accompanied the high-profile visitors to the Espelkamp-based family company’s exhibition stand. Jiabao and Merkel found the time for the Harting family to inform them about the company, its international locations and its products. Wen Jiabao ended his visit by remarking: 'You are a family company. Now you have two families, one in Germany and one in China.' These words were particularly significant to HARTING’s many Chinese employees.
Prominent regional figures also took the opportunity to visit the HARTING stand. Margrit and Dietmar Harting welcomed Dr. Ralf Niermann, chief executive of the Minden-Lübbecke district authority, Heinrich Vieker, the mayor of Espelkamp, Michael Buhre, the mayor of Minden, and Bernd Hachmann, the mayor of Rahden, in Hannover. Stephan Weil, the mayor of Hannover, also visited the traditional annual trade fair, greeted many exhibitors and found time for a lengthy discussion with the Harting family.
The Espelkamp-based family company can look back on a successful trade fair week overall and has once again demonstrated that it is shaping the markets with its innovations and is constantly attracting new interest from customers.
