Recently, Ronja Kemmer, member of the German parliament, visited the mutual Magirus and Iveco site in Ulm, Germany. During a personal conversation with Marc Diening, President and CEO of Magirus, she showed great interest in the Ulm-based company with its long-standing tradition and was duly impressed by the upcoming developments in the field of firefighting and disaster protection.
Speaking about the things she saw, Kemmer claimed that she is very enthusiastic having seen some of the chances that appear for Magirus, not only in Germany, but all across the world in a number of different areas thanks to the way in which the world is growing.
“The world of fire and rescue services is also in transition,” Kemmer said after she had finished looking around the very impressive site in Ulm. “Seeing the opportunities that arise for Magirus in Germany, but also worldwide, as a result of digitalisation, networking and alternative drive technologies are really exciting.”
Subsequently, during the guided site tour, she gained a detailed insight into the far-reaching competences of both companies in Ulm, where more than 1400 people are employed. The focus was on Iveco’s most recent developments in future-oriented drive technologies for trucks and on the Defence Vehicles segment.
The visit was rounded off with a tour of the production facility and the customer centre, with product demonstrations and a ride on the turntable ladder.
Ronja Kemmer is a directly elected member of parliament and in December 2014, when elected, was the youngest member of the German Bundestag.
