Jens Spahn visited the “hidden champion” Ossenberg Holding GmbH
“Hidden champions” are companies that are world or europe-wide leaders in an industry and at the same time unknown. Everyone knows their products in everyday life, but often it is hardly known which companies are behind them. Ossenberg in Rheine is such a company a “secret market leader”. On Friday, March 24, 2023, politician Jens Spahn visited the leading manufacturer of orthopedic walking aids and canes and was impressed by the degree of automation in production during the tour with Managing Director Martin Lisker.
Almost all machines are designed and built in the subsidiary Rheima Maschinenbau in Rheine. This specially developed the production cells ” Rheima EASY”, which can react particularly flexibly to: extensions, individual solutions, special and new requirements at short notice. The Rheima team is also available to interested companies with advice, design and individual manufacturing, so that they can progress the automation technology like Ossenberg. Jens Spahn had also an open ear for problems by the energy crisis and in the problems in health sector. He promised to think about solutions by government.
