UGT is happy to announce that we have doubled our production size. Our new production hall has a size of 900m² and so UGT disposes now of 1800m² production area.
Guests of honour at the inauguration were our Minister for Economy and Energy of Brandenburg, Mr. Albrecht Gerber, our county commissioner, Mr. Gernot Schmidt, the president of the chamber of commerce of Ostbrandenburg, Dr. Ulrich Müller, Sebastian Saule, Managing Director ZAB Brandenburg, leading scientists of the Leibniz centre for agricultural landscape research, the city council of Müncheberg and many friends and business partners of UGT.
The new construction at the UGT premises was supported by the Ministry of Economics and Energy of the Federal State of Brandenburg. The local authorities such as district and building authorities also supported the project by quick and efficient work concerning the planning and building permission.
Big projects within Germany and abroad enabled UGT to plan this construction because there the limit of capacity in fabrication was reached and so we planned a new step to further improve the work flow in our modern production lines. There will be especially equipped rooms for microelectronics and microsystem technology.
UGT makes more than 50% of its turnover in export. We cooperate with universities within Europe and abroad and our main share in exports goes to Asia especially to China and South Korea. Lately our first project was realized in Vietnam. Long traditions and narrow customer relations we have to our customers within Europe. Also the Russian market is important for UGT and above sale there are also many scientific joint projects.
The inauguration was combined with a special forum of the 3 chambers of Industry and Commerce of the Federal State of Brandenburg which are located in Frankfurt (Oder), Cottbus and Potsdam The members of the commitees of external economic relations took the opportunity of a brain storming and exchange of opinion with our Minister of economics and energy, Albrecht Gerber.
The CEO of UGT, Dr. Manfred Seyfarth, the Managing Directors, Mr. Bernd Fürst and Dr. Sascha Reth, cut the symbolic ribbon together with Albrecht Gerber and Dr. Ulrich Müller.
The team of UGT welcomes the new better working conditions and is eager to start production in the new facility.
We thank again all our guests and friends for having spent with us some great time and we look forward to new interesting work projects world wide and feel comfortable to help protecting our environment with our monitoring equipment – made in Müncheberg, Brandenburg.
