German Business Matters in Seattle


Seattle the high-tech hub of the Pacific Northwest, is an attractive location for German companies. The Representative of German Industry and Trade, together with the Deputy Chief of Mission of the German Embassy, Boris Ruge, Ulrich Suedbeck, Consul General for San Francisco, and Ulrich Fischer, Honorary Consul in Seattle, had the opportunity to visit T-Mobile and discuss digitalization. Visits to the US production facilities of Herrenknecht USA and Thyssenkrupp Aerospace provided great insight into the day-to day operations of German companies in the U.S.

Daniel Andrich and Ulrich Suedbeck discussed trade issues and challenges and opportunities for companies operating globally as keynote speakers at an event hosted by the Seattle Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce. A reception with German companies and local government representatives hosted by the honorary consul, the German embassy and RGIT closed out the visit.
