INVEST GmbH, an agency established to attract investment for the region. The document celebrates US companies that have introduced new technologies, products and management practices to the area. Joachim Stoss, managing director with responsibility for Edgetech in Europe says: “We’re thrilled to be one of the few companies mentioned in the latest NRW.INVEST brochure which highlights the success stories of US companies investing in the North Rhine-Westphalia region. Edgetech is part of the Quanex Building Products group, an industry leading supplier of cutting edge energy efficient window and door systems and components. Last year Edgetech celebrated 10 years in Heinsberg – a milestone we could not have reached without the dedicated and motivated staff we were able to employ in the area. It is also thanks to these committed employees that we have continuously grown since we moved into our purpose built manufacturing facility but have also continued to deliver the quality products our customers have come to expect from us.”
The United States continues to be one of Germany’s most significant economic partners, and therefore so does the federal state North Rhine-Westphalia. As two of the most powerful economies in the world, both are facing the same challenges, including how to maintain technological excellence and how to maintain a strong presence despite growing global competition. This is why, according to NRW.INVEST, we need to continue the strong relationship between the US and North Rhine-Westphalia, to ensure companies in the North Rhine-Westphalia region continue to introduce new ideas, new products, new techniques and new procedures – all with aim of creating more jobs.
Joachim continues: “Since Edgetech was first established in the US 26 years ago it has built a reputation for being a market leader and a manufacturer of quality warm edge spacer systems. But we have never rested on our laurels, with the support and resources from our parent company Quanex we still continue to research and develop new products today to ensure we are consistently driving innovation. We want to ensure that our customers are always getting the very best products that deliver high quality and excellent productivity. That’s why we are particularly pleased to appear as one of the flagship companies highlighted by the NRW.INVEST in their latest brochure.”
