Exchange of ideas with the Netherlands

A delegation of Grevenbroich’s youngest sister city Peel en Maas – about 80 kilometers away from Grevenbroich on the Dutch side of the border – has visited the town yesterday. Part of the program was a meeting with Humintech’s executive team at their company grounds next to the open cast lignite mine Garzweiler.

The delegation consisted of Peel en Maas’ mayor Wilma Delissen-van Tongerlo, vice-mayor Roland van Kessel and Will Krause, who is in charge for the sister-city arrangement. After a stroll through town with Grevenbroich’s mayor Klaus Krützel, the group was joint by Joachim Schwedhelm and Marie J. Zander of Grevenbroich’s sister-city commission as well as Andreas Sterken of the city government for lunch.

As part of the towns’ initiative for more exchange in business ideas, the group visited Humintech GmbH in the afternoon. Humintech is a shining example of innovative and sustainable business culture in Grevenbroich. The guests from the Netherlands were impressed by Humintech’s achievements and new contacts with the executive team were established very quickly, with sympathy, curiosity and respect on both sides.

The meeting was arranged by Carina Lucas of Grevenbroich’s business development agency.
