Regional Subsidiary Central - Your sustainable network
We as the team of the Landesverband Mitte are the point of contact for our almost 400 member companies in Hesse, Rhineland-Palatinate and Saarland, as well as the short line to the technical experts of the VDMA and its network.
The specialist for hydraulic components and FCI gas measurement technology was founded in 1984 by Erich Weiss and since 2010 has been managed by his son-in-law, Ralf Zwiener, who was previously Managing Director of Barksdale.
After the mechanical engineering sector in Rhineland-Palatinate had been generating sales growth for six years, the mechanical engineering sector in Rhineland-Palatinate did not make a good start to the year in the first quarter of 2019. The decline in sales of 7.2 percent overall is mainly due to the sharp 11.2 % decline in the particularly important foreign sales to other countries.
bar GmbH was founded by Dipl.-Ing. Manfred Heise on 25.05.1979 in St. Katharinen. For 40 years, bar GmbH has been a reliable partner to many well-known industrial companies and is now part of Watts Water Technologies.
Uniform standards are an important prerequisite for the acceptance of industry 4.0 in mechanical engineering. In order to standardize machine-to-machine communication, the VDMA sees the uniform communication standard OPC UA as the preferred standard through its members.
Engineers in research and development - still wanted?
The next Ingenieurerhebung among VDMA member companies is due to take place in May. Does almost every second engineer still work in research, development and construction? Has the number of engineers developed similarly to that of employees in mechanical engineering companies? And which qualifications count? Your numbers are in demand.
VDMA Cyber Study and Online Tool Help with Risk Assessment
The study "Cyber Risks in Mechanical and Plant Engineering" by VDMA and VSMA confirms that many companies underestimate the risks. With the "Cyber Risk Analysis", VDMA member companies can check their hazard potential.
