<font size="2">The German foundry-industry substitutes its interests instantly in the new founded “Bundesverband der Deutschen Gießerei-Industrie” (BDG). </font>

<font size="2">In the BDG united the three industry alliances, Deutscher Gießereiverband e. V. (DGV), the Gesamtverband Deutscher Metallgießereien e. V. (GDM) and the Verein Deutscher Gießereifachleute e.V. (VDG). </font>

<font size="2">On the 20th of August Hans-Dieter Honsel has been voted as chairman of the BDG. Place of the Bundesverband der Deutschen Gießerei-Industrie is in Düsseldorf.</font>

<font size="2">„It has become a powerful alliance by combination of the three organisations, which replaces consistently all economic and technical interests of the German foundry-industry”, comments BDG-president Hans-Dieter Honsel. </font>

<font size="2">To the BDG belong altogether over 600 companies. The spectrum of the member companies reaches from small middle-class companies to global operating concerns. The foundry-industry counts since many years to the world leader with its technological challenging and innovative products in each material, which support the best solution, and is brilliantly&nbsp; positioned in the international comparison.</font>

<font size="2">The German foundry-industry employs round 90 000 workers today and made a turnover about 15 billion Euro in 2007.</font>

<font size="2">The main-executive from the BDG is represented by Gerhard Klügge (finances), Kay-Uwe-Präfke (economy) and Dr.-Ing. Gotthard Wolf (technology).</font>
