Strengthen medium-sized businesses

On Tuesday, June 6, 2017, Werner Urban (President of the bluechemGROUP) received high guests at the headquarters of the bluechemGROUP in Leutenberg, Thuringia. Thomas L. Kemmerich (regional chairman of the Free Democratic Party of Thuringia), painter Reginald Hanke (direct candidate of the FDP in constituency 195 (Saalfeld-Rudolstadt, Saale-Orla-Kreis, Saale-Holzland-Kreis) for Bundestag elections 2017) and Klaus Linke (member of the FDP and the chairman of the trade association of Leutenberg) had a closer look at our business premises and got an impression of the functioning of a global company with regional rootedness. Afterwards, there was an intensive exchange of ideas about the situation of the middle class in general and the development of the bluechemGROUP in particular.

Werner Urban emphasized that above all qualified specialists play a central role in the success of a company: "The bluechemGROUP has partners in more than 100 countries and is growing continuously. For this development to continue, we need trained staff, for whose acquisition we need the support of the political world. The state and the federal government have to work continuously to strengthen the region, so that the deficit of skilled labor does not become a serious problem. The exchange of ideas was of tremendous importance to me, so that the voice of the middle class would also be heard by politics."

Thomas L. Kemmerich, Reginald Hanke and Klaus Linke thanked Mr. Urban for the very intense conversation and the many helpful suggestions.
