„Getränke!“ July 2016:
Is industrial change made in Germany? It cannot be denied anymore that a lot is changing in our country, politically as well as economically. The change is becoming tangible, and not least for the German industry. Of all things, our core competences, engineering and manufacturing, and even our darling and biggest export product, the automobile – including the whole automotive industry and its subcontractors – are threatened. And the name of the threat is Industrie 4.0, or rather, Internet of Things.
