Heitkamp & Thumann Group has joined the initiative "Zukunft durch Industrie" (Future through Industry)
The Heitkamp & Thumann Group has joined “Zukunft durch Industrie”, an initiative of manufacturing companies promoting the knowledge about industrial value-chains to our society. By joining the initiative, the family owned Heitkamp & Thumann Group once again affirms its commitment to Germany and North Rhine-Westphalia as a manufacturing location.
New industrial projects are increasingly exposed to emotional criticism and rejection by different social groups. This leads partly to the prevention of industrial projects without having discussed the negative consequences for the labor market and future growth in an open, transparent and fact based manner.
By organizing activities and events for citizens, “Zukunft durch Industrie” enters into dialogue to increase the general understanding about industry’s positive impact on the economy. One of the initiative’s flagship events is the annual NIGHT OF INDUSTRY. At this event, companies open up their production sites for interested citizens to let them see what is going on behind their factory gates and what added value industrial companies provide to their local community as well as how German manufacturers live up to their social responsibility.
