Chancellor Olaf Scholz visits Häfele headquarters and experiences sustainable space concepts

Recently, Chancellor Olaf Scholz paid a visit to the family-owned company Häfele in Nagold, Germany. During his visit, he gained insight into how a traditional industry can successfully evolve and the current issues that concern employees and the company. Häfele, originally a specialist store in hardware, has now become a globally leading expert in furniture and construction fittings, LED lighting, and electronic access systems.

Sibylle Thierer, Chairwoman of the Board of Directors, led the company for 20 years until 2023, introducing innovative concepts such as furniture lighting and space illumination. Gregor Riekena, CEO since January 2023, emphasized Häfele's vision for the future to make living and working spaces more functional, atmospheric, and efficient.

During the tour, Chancellor Scholz experienced firsthand the easy operation of lighting and access systems using just one network. He showed interest in the multifunctional use of spaces, which can be quickly transformed from a hotel room to an office or meeting space, for example.
