The Minister of Economics of Hessen visits Hilscher

August 2018

Hattersheim - As part of the "Digitales Hessen Strategie" project, Tarek Al-Wazir visited the family managed company in Hattersheim. In order to reinforce the pioneering role in tomorrow's industrial communication, the company was also appropriately voted as one of the 100 most innovative companies in Germany just right before the visit.

Hilscher welcomed Tarek Al-Wazir to Hattersheim. As a pioneer for technology in the area of Industrie 4.0 and as one of the Top 100 most innovative companies in Germany, Hilscher was an ideal destination for the summer trip of the Minister of Economic Affairs, which he is carrying out under the sign of the "Digitales Hessen Strategie". "The companies in Hessen should take advantage of the opportunities offered by digitalization," demands Al-Wazir. "Digital technologies enable resource- and energy-efficient production and create space for completely new business models," the minister added, "but they also call existing products and work processes into question. That is precisely why we must take up this challenge."

The fact that Hilscher, with its 300 employees, focuses precisely on this topic in production shows that Hilscher recognizes the great potential and is well on the way to achieving it. Hilscher thanks the Hessian Minister of Economics for his visit and hopes for a continued successful cooperation with the State of Hessen
