The guests at the opening included Martin Günthner, Senator of Economic Affairs, Labour and Ports, the Chancellor of the University of Bremen, Dr. Martin Mehrtens and Frank Maier, Member of the Board of Lenze SE. In his speech, Bremen's Senator of Economic Affairs stressed the positive impact of the commitment to the IT industry in Bremen. “Bremen needs strong corporate partners who are successfully positioning themselves on the market in the global growth sector Industry 4.0. With DOCK ONE, Lenze is building on the strengths of our location and helping to further strengthen Bremen as an up-and-coming IT location.” Frank Maier is of the same opinion and cites the excellent university infrastructure as the reason the Group chose Bremen. “As a company, it is obvious that we need well-trained specialists and graduates. In particular, students from the faculties of computer science and production engineering will be able to find attractive jobs thanks to the close links between business and research” he explained.
