Baden-Württemberg's mechanical engineering sector is clearly on course for growth in 2018. Companies are achieving significant growth in order intake, sales and employment. "2018 will be a strong year for mechanical engineering in Baden-Württemberg. Due to political uncertainties, however, we are facing challenges," said Dr.-Ing. Mathias Kammüller, Chairman of the VDMA Baden-Württemberg, on 18 July 2018 in Stuttgart.
