Potash is produced in Jordan by pumping water from the Dead Sea into basins in the earth. Bauer used its machinery to install cut-off walls to a depth of 30 meters in the salty soil. Bauer AG
Why Bauer is rein­vent­ing
it’s Sup­ply Chain
The BAUER Group pro­duces the sophis­ti­cat­ed machin­ery for its own ground- and ground­wa­ter-relat­ed work. And for its direct com­peti­tors. The com­pa­ny has embarked upon a trans­for­ma­tion designed to con­tin­ue its extra­or­di­nary tra­di­tion of world cham­pi­onship per­for­mance in this high­ly spe­cial­ized field.

The ben­e­fits of
being dif­fer­ent
Gold­beck GmbH, a fam­i­ly-run con­struc­tion and real estate com­pa­ny based in Biele­feld, offers every­thing from a sin­gle source. It designs, builds, and oper­ates com­mer­cial prop­er­ties such as hall build­ings, office com­plex­es, and multi-level car parks. It also man­u­fac­tures the com­po­nent parts of these struc­tures. With the courage to pur­sue an indi­vid­ual course yet also to think in sys­tems, it has become one of Germany’s most suc­cess­ful medi­um-sized enter­pris­es.

From Gigafac­to­ry to
Giga-Busi­ness
Elec­tric cars are only as good as their bat­ter­ies – one of the most essen­tial and expen­sive com­po­nents. The pro­duc­ers of these bat­ter­ies need to mas­ter the tech­nolo­gies and offer com­pet­i­tive prices if they are to suc­ceed.
Night Shift
on Track
The last pas­sen­gers have hard­ly dis­em­barked before night­ly main­te­nance work on the fleet of ICE trains begins. A pre­cise timetable is impor­tant here too, as shown by a visit to Deutsche Bahn’s newest main­te­nance depot.

Ways out of the Cri­sis
The Covid-19 cri­sis has not affect­ed all parts of the econ­o­my equal­ly. For some indus­tries it has even brought more oppor­tu­ni­ties than chal­lenges. We present cru­cial con­sid­er­a­tions for top man­agers in fields from mechan­i­cal engi­neer­ing to finan­cial ser­vices.
Sustainability presents major challenges to the economy and society at large. How can we ensure a livable world for both people and nature?

Sus­tain­abil­i­ty – Now More Than Ever
The Covid-19 pan­dem­ic sent shock waves through busi­ness­es and the econ­o­my. In con­se­quence, sus­tain­abil­i­ty could fade into the background—or become an even more impor­tant fac­tor for suc­cess.
