German Chancellor and US President visit Rittal stand at Hannover Messe 2016

US President Barack Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel paid tribute to the extraordinary innovation and commitment to future talent development shown by the Rittal company during a recent state visit.

Both the corporation’s new Blue e+ generation of cooling units and its ongoing investment in young trainees impressed the President and Chancellor Merkel on the opening day of the Hannover Messe 2016. The USA was selected as this year’s partner country for the Hanover expo. Rittal currently equips some of the largest data centres in the world. The US President showed considerable interest in the new Blue e+ cooling unit, commenting at one point, ‘This is a fine company!’

Chancellor Merkel, meanwhile, appeared particularly enthused by the Friedhelm Loh Group’s commitment to training young, up and coming talent, and she also spoke warmly of Rittal’s determination to integrate refugees into its regular training programme – a first in Germany.
Rittal has set ambitious goals for itself in the United States with plans to double its sales in this important market over the next few years.

‘We have been active in America for more than 30 years, and are particularly proud that 85 per cent of our products are made in the USA,’ said Gregg Holst, president of the Rittal Corporation in the United States.

Rittal currently employs 750 members of staff at its US operations, which are headquartered in Chicago.
