Mayor Bernd Tischler and Sabine Wißmann, Head of the Office of Business Development, visited SEEPEX GmbH in October, in order to meet with the owner of the company, Ulli Seeberger.

“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.
