Visit of the Baden-Württemberg Minister of Economic Affairs
Dr. Nicole Hoffmeister-Kraut gets insights at ADS-TEC
Dr. Nicole Hoffmeister-Kraut, Baden-Württemberg's Minister of Economy, visited the medium-sized family business ADS-TEC in Nuertingen on 8 August 2019. At the technologically leading company, she was primarily informed about the opportunities and risks of fast-loading infrastructures, as these are becoming central importance with increasing e-mobility. The company is a global pioneer in this field, especially for the use in performance-limited network structures. In the second area of industrial IT systems, the Minister was also able to find out how it is possible for a medium-sized German manufacturer with leading technology and digital processes to survive in an environment of Asian dominance. ADS-TEC Managing Director and President of the Federal Association for Energy Storage Systems Thomas Speidel summarises: "It is important that we work shoulder to shoulder with politics, business, research and society not only to develop high-technology from Baden-Württemberg, but also to supply it and therefore maintain added value in the new business areas of mobility.
