Schüco Open 2012
Schüco is Official Environmental Partner at Wentworth
Bielefeld – Schüco International KG in Bielefeld was the Official Environmental Partner of the PGA European Tour at the flagship event on the European Tour, the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth. The company could be found in an exhibition tent in the public area with the familiar slogan “Green Technology for the Blue
Planet”. It was an impressive demonstration from Schüco of its close association with the sport of golf. For example, as host of the largest and most star-studded invitational tournament in Germany, the Schüco Open, which is being held for the fourth time in 2012, from 28 - 29 July at the Gut Kaden Golf und Land Club Gut Kaden near Hamburg.
Schüco was running a range of competitions with attractive prizes during the BMW PGA Championship. A hole-in-one contest and a putting competition had been held each day, with prizes including caps signed personally by Martin Kaymer. There was also a competition to guess the number of tees in a glass jar. Prizes here again included caps autographed by Martin Kaymer and Schüco golf balls. One lucky visitor who was able to guess the exact number, or whose guess was closest, was winning two VIP tickets to the Schüco Open 2012 on Sunday 29 July.
“As Official Environmental Partner of the PGA European Tour, we are very proud to work with this association of golf professionals to develop and create new opportunities for sustainable tournaments,”
explains Tanja Brinks, Director of Global Marketing at Schüco, adding, “we are, of course, delighted to be able to show the international golfing public at this flagship event that we already have solutions today for clean energy and a secure future.”
Schüco – Green Technology for the Blue Planet.
That means clean energy from solar products and windows. And the contribution that Schüco makes to the environment with pioneering building envelopes. To be more 3precise, with Energy: saving energy – generating energy – networking energy.
Window and façade systems not only save energy due to optimum thermal insulation, they also generate energy thanks to efficient solar solutions. This creates an excess of energy which can be used by means of intelligent networking. For building functions, as well as for everyday life. The result is a significant step towards energy self-sufficiency – towards the sustainable conservation of natural resources. And towards a secure future. With 5,250 employees and 12,000 partner companies, Schüco is active in 78 countries and achieved turnover of 2.38 billion euros in 2010. www.schueco.com
