Ronja Kemmer, member of the German parliament, visits Magirus

Member of the Bundestag impressed by Ulm site’s developments.

Last week, Ronja Kemmer, member of the German parliament, visited the mutual Magirus and Iveco site in Ulm. During a personal conversation with Marc Diening, President & 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: "The world of fire and rescue services is also in transition. Seeing the opportunities that arise for Magirus in Germany, but also worldwide, as a result of digitisation, 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.
