Transport policy in Germany is facing a massive challenge: Ensuring the mobility of people and transportation of goods for the future while simultaneously reducing emissions that are harmful to the climate and the environment. In short: Mobility and transportation need to be re-imagined and made much more sustainable. Green Party representatives at state and local government level have always felt a particular commitment to addressing this key future issue. 

On 25/03/2019, members of the Green Party group in the state parliament visited HEINZMANN in Schönau to find out about the very latest mobility solutions “Made in Germany”. Markus Gromer (HEINZMANN CEO) and Peter Mérimèche (Managing Director of HEINZMANN Electric Drives) welcomed Josha Frey (European policy spokesperson for state parliament Green Party), Andreas Schwarz (Leader of Green Party group in state parliament) and the Mayor of Schönau, Peter Schelshorn.

A presentation focusing on emission-reducing HEINZMANN products from its Engine & Turbine Management and Electric Drives divisions gave the visitors an insight into the extensive range of solutions now emerging from the technology incubator in the Upper Wiesental area.

On the subsequent factory tour, Gerrit Kaupp (HEINZMANN Operations Manager) presented the latest HEINZMANN solutions in the field of eMobility.

The politicians were impressed by HEINZMANN’s know-how and the broad range of technology available: “The Lörrach district can be proud that such an innovative company is based in the Wiesental. For decades, HEINZMANN has provided valuable jobs in this rural area and is developing future technologies that can make a significant contribution to saving the planet”, said Josha Frey.

Im Anschluss testen die Besucher bei Probefahrten mit dem elektrisch betriebenen Cargo Bike der Marke RYTLE eine E-Mobilitätslösung speziell für die städtische Logistik. Das Herzstück des RYLTE CargoBikes ist der von HEINZMANN entwickelte und in Schönau produzierte Radnabenmotor CargoPower. Mit dem RYTLE CargoBike werden Waren jeglicher Art abgasfrei und schnell auf der letzten Liefermeile zugestellt.

Die Eindrücke des Besuchs fasst Andreas Schwarz zusammen: „Das Eintreten gegen den Klimawandel ist die Menschheitsfrage dieses Jahrhunderts. Klimaschutz ist aus ökologischen Gründen das Gebot der Stunde und zudem eine Frage der ökonomischen Vernunft. Klimaschutz schafft Wirtschaftswachstum und Arbeitsplätze von morgen. So sind aus der Energiewende bereits mehr als 50.000 neue Jobs in Baden-Württemberg entstanden. Die Firma HEINZMANN zeigt durch ihre innovativen Produkte sehr gut, wie ein toller Mittelständler aus Baden-Württemberg einen wichtigen Beitrag zu hochwertigen Arbeitsplätzen in der Fläche und auch zum Klima- und Umweltschutz leisten kann. Wir sind begeistert von der tollen Leistung der Firma und ihrer Arbeitnehmer.“
