BREMEN, Germany --- Leading high-tech company ATLAS ELEKTRONIK opened its new presentation, simulation and integration centre “ATLAS World” today.
The Managing Directors of ATLAS, Dieter Rottsieper and Kai Horten, officially opened the new facility together with Ralf Nagel, Bremen’s Senator for Economic Affairs and Ports, and Captain Werner Lüders, Director of Naval Armaments and Logistics for the German Navy. The event was attended by some 80 representatives of politics and industry in Bremen, of the German Navy as well as of universities and the shareholders.
Covering several hundred square metres, ATLAS World is a presentation centre in which ATLAS will be able to showcase and demonstrate its products and systems from the world of naval technology. The exhibits will include, for example, long-range sonars, command systems for submarines and surface vessels, unmanned underwater vehicles, and systems for detecting and destroying sea mines. Complex systems for monitoring and securing harbours and coasts will also be on display.
Kai Horten, one of the two Managing Directors of ATLAS, said: “With our new presentation and integration centre, we will be able to present ourselves to customers from all over the globe, and especially to the German Navy, as what we really are: one of the most innovative high-performance enterprises for naval electronics in the world!” AT-LAS World is not just a showroom but also a facility in which ATLAS can demonstrate and simulate special solutions for its customers. ATLAS World will offer the clientele a range of additional services, Kai Horten added.
His colleague Dieter Rottsieper explained: “ATLAS World is also a manifestation of our self-confidence. The products presented here are amongst the best available on the world market for naval electronics. We will be using ATLAS World to dovetail our systems with those of our customers and business partners, and also to integrate and ad-vance them. With that, ATLAS World is also another step forward for ATLAS in safe-guarding its sustainability.” What is more, the new centre is an expression of the competence and innovative energy of the ATLAS workforce, whose skills provide a sound foundation for the company’s enduring success.
Ralf Nagel, the Senator for Economic Affairs and Ports, viewed the establishment of ATLAS World as strengthening and enhancing the attractiveness of Bremen. “ATLAS ELEKTRONIK is an important employer for the people of Bremen and belongs to the global players on the world stage. ATLAS World is a symbol for the innovative energy and the research and development capacity available in Bremen as an industrial location,” Senator Nagel continued.
The Director of Naval Armaments and Logistics, Captain Werner Lüders, commented favourably on the long-standing cooperation with ATLAS ELEKTRONIK: “ATLAS ELEKTRONIK in particular and the German industry in general will continue to play a vital role in providing our operational forces with the effective platforms they need to fulfil their missions successfully and safely. I have full confidence in the capability and dependability of the industry.”
