- Headquarters of ZÜBLIN Bavaria moved from Stuttgart to Munich with change in sub-division management
- Approx. 70 invited participants
- Focus on dialogue in business and economic matters
Ilse Aigner, Bavaria’s Minister for Economic Affairs and Deputy Minister-President of the southern German state, paid a visit to ZÜBLIN’s Bavaria subdivision on 17 July 2017. Following speeches by the minister and by Klaus Pöllath, member of the management board of Ed. Züblin AG, the focus shifted to a dialogue among the guests, which included employees and managers of ZÜBLIN.
The reason for Ilse Aigner’s visit was the move of the ZÜBLIN subdivision from Stuttgart to Munich and a change in the subdivision management. Ludger Koch is assuming the position of technical subdivision manager from Ulrich Rudolph, who is going into retirement. The commercial sub-division management remains in the hands of Angelo Evangelista.
The focus of discussion was on the current economic situation in Germany in general and in Bavaria in particular. The dialogue centred on issues such as the lack of skilled labour as well as energy, technology and challenges facing the construction sector.
Minister Aigner stressed the importance of the construction industry as a key sector of the economy: “Construction is booming. Last year, the industry registered revenue growth of nearly 4 percent and a 10 percent increase in orders compared to 2015. ZÜBLIN has been an important player in Bavaria for almost 70 years and its move to Munich reinforces its activities in Bavaria. This is especially true for the current challenges of digitalisation on the construction site, energy efficiency and the housing shortage in the metropolitan areas.”
“The dialogue with politicians is very important for us. It helps us to strengthen the mutual understanding and to better approach opportunities and challenges for our company,” says Klaus Pöllath, adding: “We still have a lot planned in Bavaria: Our agenda includes the further expansion of our core business in building construction and civil engineering as well as the strengthening of our project development business in building construction with STRABAG Projektentwicklung GmbH in Munich.”
