District administration and mayor donate treesOctober 2019
Trees, life and BINDER
A tree represents life. So does BINDER, based in Tuttlingen. The perfect combination. And during
a ceremonial tree-planting event, BINDER had not just one tree, but two. One was donated by the Tuttlingen district administration, and the other is from the municipality of Tuttlingen. The two trees had been promised at the COMPETENCE FACTORY inauguration ceremony in Fall 2017.
That promise became a ceremonial tree-planting event on the BINDER Campus in Tuttlingen. District Administrator Stefan Bär represented Tuttlingen regional administration, and Mayor Michael Beck attended on behalf of Tuttlingen municipality. Both parties had had their "gift" delivered in advance, so the lime tree and the maple were already in place and looking great.
There was still some work left for the two local politicians, however, who were charged with knocking the signs made by the BINDER trainees into the ground. Beck and Bär did a great job and had no objections to contributing a little physical effort. The two officials also provided some interesting information about the winter linden and the Norway maple trees. BINDER Vice Presidents, Michael Pfaff and Peter Wimmer, both also gave short speeches. They were able to identify parallels between the trees and BINDER, and promised to take good care of the beautiful trees in the future as tree custodians.
For BINDER, the tree campaign was also of symbolic relevance. After all, the company, which has its roots in Tuttlingen, is set to remain at this location for a long time to come and will also remain in family hands in the next generation.
