Upswing in mechanical engineering in Baden-Württemberg continues unbridled
Stuttgart, September 28, 2017 – Strong results in August confirmed the upward trend observed in the mechanical engineering industry in Baden-Württemberg in the last few months. Incoming orders grew by a total of 16 percent compared to the same month of the previous year. The lion’s share of this development comes from abroad. Orders here have increased by 25 percent (euro partner countries +30 percent, non-euro countries +23 percent).

The mechanical engineering industry says: "Thank you, free trade."
The VDMA World Map of Free Trade shows many red and yellow areas - a clear warning sign that important markets are closing themselves off or making the exchange of goods increasingly difficult. The VDMA has therefore launched the campaign "Thank you, free trade.“
