Visit to OHB by party leader Kurt Beck

SPD1 party chairman Kurt Beck visited Bremen and Bremerhaven on March 28. Accompanied by city mayor Jens Böhrnsen and Bremen’s state SPD chairman Uwe Beckmeyer, Kurt Beck took a guided tour of space technology company OHB’s facilities in the afternoon. The warm welcome by CEO Prof. Manfred Fuchs was followed by a presentation and tour of the company. Kurt Beck was particularly impressed with the production of the SAR-Lupe satellites in the integration hall at the Bremen technology part. He attached particular importance to talks with the employee representatives at OHB, during which he inquired about the Company’s structure and the way in which temporary staff were being treated.
