As a company with partners and projects around the globe, encouraging local development is of huge importance to us. Education is one of the most important assets and that is why we are supporting the establishment of the first German School in Panama. The aim of the project, organized by the Asociation Educativa Colegio Aleman and the governments of Panama and Germany, is to offer a high performance education. With the help of the latest technology and services in education and a trilingual curriculum, the future graduates will have the opportunity to enter the world’s best universities. The Nikolaus Kopernikus German School will be located in Clayton. The admission period for September 2016 has already commenced.
During 2014, Tönnjes won a 3 year contract for the supply of license plates for the province of Punjab in Pakistan.
As well as the supply of license plates, the order includes production equipment and a customized order management software for the complex local personalization process and related security applications.
The world automotive market is growing, although having a subdued economy. According to the German Automotive Industry most of the employees of the car industry do not have to be worried about their job situation. Despite the fact that there have been drastic declines of selling cars in Western Europe (mainly because of the weak demand of France, Spain and Italy) the situation on the job market in Germany is stable compared to other western European countries. Experts suspect that the worldwide sales of all manufacturers will edge up to 5% in the United States and 6% in China, which are the two main countries who are responsible for the assumption that the car industry will still be growing the coming years. Especially German corporations with their cars in the premium segment as well as some popular small cars will benefit from that.
