Hartmut Heinen faces the ladies of the CDU

Hartmut Heinen introduced himself on Tuesday evening to the ladies of the CDU Frauenunion Minden-Lübbecke. The joint candidate chosen by the CDU, FDP and FWG for the office of District Chief Executive, for which elections are due on May 13, 2007, picked a particular place in which to make the ladies‘ acquaintance - the Botta Building in Minden. The building which since 2001 has been home to the sales organization of HARTING Deutschland GmbH & Co. KG is located directly opposite the district council offices, and offers impressive proof that the city of Minden’s Prussian history lives on in modern architecture.
By way of introduction, Hartmut Heinen explained, “On the principle of ‘creating jobs by encouraging small businesses’, I shall continue to make every effort to ensure our existing SMEs and those setting up new businesses benefit from outstanding conditions, because they are the engine of growth and prosperity.”
The guests were also able to form an impression of the Botta Building. Anne Bentfeld, Manager of HARTING’s Central Publicity and Communications Department, with the assistance of Stefan Rampe, Sales Manager Key Account Management, took the visitors on a tour through the building designed by Swiss architect Mario Botta. Besides the architecture itself, guests also enjoyed an introduction to the work of Düsseldorf artist Stefan Hoderlein. His works have been on display since October 2006 as a tangible illustration of corporate culture.
