Siemens Plans to Put Focus on Platforms
? Don’t Asians have a greater affinity for the use of innovative technologies?
Herweck: No, but they are more ready to try out something new, are more inquisitive. The transformation cycle in China simply has a higher cycle frequency than in Europe – in the process industries too.
? Let us look into the future: How far would you like to be with the new division in three years?
Herweck: By then, we will have set up our business successfully and will be the trusted partner of our customers. In order to achieve this, we have put a unique offer together. We know that our customers are looking for a trustworthy partner for their investments, one with whom they can work in the long term. And that is precisely what we stand for.
Mr. Herweck, many thanks for talking to us.
