“Regular contact and direct communication with our small and medium-sized enterprises is a subject close to my heart,” said Bernd Tischler, explaining the reason for his visit. During a joint tour of the production building, the two visitors expressed great interest in the ongoing digitalization of progressive cavity pumps – in keeping with Industry 4.0 – and the modern machinery.
“The innovative companies in our city, in all the different industries, never fail to impress me,” said a delighted Bernd Tischler. In recent years, SEEPEX has invested a total of 6 million euros in its Bottrop location. In April of this year, a new CNC machine tool was commissioned. Naturally, this also benefits the fourteen trainees, who will be trained as highly qualified technicians on state-of-the-art machines. The modern workstations and diverse applications of progressive cavity pumps impressed Sabine Wißmann. “I always find it exciting to look behind the scenes at a company,” she explained.
The visit to SEEPEX once again demonstrated that strong SMEs in Bottrop are a key driving force and important employers for the city.
