ChamberBrief 2016: April Edition

Dear Members and Friends,

Hannover Messe 2016 is just days away and we are gearing up to meet industry leaders, network at  the US investment pavilion and organize our own two info seminars at the fair. If you are in Hannover, stop by Hall 3 to meet us at the US Investment Pavilion or attend the GACCs’ seminars about the basics of market entry into the US and, of course, how we help. Industries discussed will include: legal issues, IT, startups, sales strategies and machinery & logistics.

Our mission to bring German quality, innovation and success to the American heartland and to keep an open transatlantic dialogue is being furthered. We are publishing the Invest Midwest brochure to highlight the Midwest as a dynamic investment location and to give industry leaders and economic developers a promotional platform that will be printed right on time for IMTS in Chicago in September. Why should you be a part of it?

Speaking of industry leaders, we are very excited to announce that the winner of our Energy Efficiency Award Challenge is Airleader. The installation of their compressor management system at Herman Miller, Inc. in Spring Lake, MI is a clear-cut example of German-American quality and innovation in the green building sector.

Energy Efficiency Award Challenge

“GACC Midwest has acted as a catalyst for German-American business and innovation for over 50 years. Our finalists are part of a wider success story: Germany has established itself as an international market leader and innovation driver in the fields of energy efficiency and green building, ” said W. David Braun, Partner, Quarles & Brady LLP on the occasion of the awards. Congratulations to all of our finalists and especially our winner!

This week also saw another Energy Efficiency initiative -- the Innovation Seminars on transportation -- at 4 universities in the Midwest. They featured expert speakers in the German transportation sector, connecting students’ classroom studies with real-world technologies and developments. Learn more about our work and upcoming energy efficiency programs.
