Dr. Stefan Hartung, Chairman of the Board of Management of Robert Bosch GmbH, welcomed Dr. Robert Habeck, German Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Climate Action, to the Bosch plant in Bamberg on Wednesday. With 6,500 associates, this is one of the most prominent employers in the region.
Hartung gave the Minister a tour of the plant, which can trace its history back to 1939 and is one of the largest manufacturing sites for drive technology in the Bosch Group. For the Bamberg site, the industrialization of high-temperature fuel cells (solid oxide fuel cells = SOFC) represents an important prospect for the future. While he was on site, Habeck found out more about the progress of SOFC industrialization. As he explained: “If we are to achieve net zero, then business, politics, innovations and the promotion of these must all go hand in hand. With its investments here in Bamberg, Bosch is playing its part in ensuring this transformation of industry is successful and is future-proofing its future for the region.”
