German glass machinery and plant manufacturers are reportedly embracing sustainability, as indicated by the favorable response to the BlueCompetence trademark created by the German Machinery and Plant Manufacturers’ Association (VDMA).

“[The BlueCompetence initiative] gives us and our customers a competitive edge,” said Dominik Hinzen, Marketing manager for the Bohle Group. Companies bearing this label are characterized by sustainability playing a major role in all their business units and activities. The Bohle Group, a producer and wholesaler of machinery, tools, and consumables for glass processing and finishing, has qualified for this award. Hinzen says he regards BlueCompetence as a “meaningful initiative” and considers sustainability and, hence, environmental protection, “good sales arguments,” not only for Germany and Europe, but also increasingly for other parts of the world.
