Industry initiative

The In/du/stry acceptance initiative reflects the idea that awareness of the importance of industry as a driver for progress and employment should be enhanced. Around 80 industrial companies from the Münsterland and Emscher-Lippe regions have come on board this industrial initiative, while the Deflex Fugensysteme GmbH company, like its parent Besa group, is also a member of this offensive.

The acceptance initiative came into being similarly to a citizens’ initiative from the circle of companies involved in the industrial committee. The CCI general meeting declared full support for the initiative and agreed to provide funding for five years.

The goal of the initiative is to enhance the image of industrial companies as well as strengthening awareness of the industrial performance potential.

Industrial companies are likely to provide sustainable jobs and qualified training courses. To further publicise this, the Deflex Fugensysteme GmbH company joined other local businesses in organising a trainee Olympiad held at the Borken market place. A total of 84 trainees from 13 Borken companies turned up, for what was a public presentation of business.

A recent survey held within the region awarded a grade of “three” to the image of industry and the objective now is to improve this to a more positive “two”.
