The Vogel Communications Group – headquartered in Würzburg – is the leading German provider of specialist industry communication with around 700 employees. Its core business consists of agency services and specialist media. On 27 April 2022, the cooperation agreement with this professional media partner was signed in a ceremonial setting. Since then, the Vogel Communications Group and the VQWS e.V. have been working passionately together in partnership to promote cutting-edge science and technology in industrial bolt technology. The SchraubTec regional fairs, which have been held quarterly and regionally across Germany since 2021, are the first joint activities of this promising cooperation.
The VDI – Verein Deutscher Ingenieure e.V. (Association of German Engineers) – is the largest technical-scientific association in Germany, and is regarded as the mouthpiece for technical engineers. Every year, over 12,000 voluntary experts set to work on the latest findings to promote Germany as a location for technology. For more than 165 years (and as the third largest technical authority for establishing industry rules and regulations), the VDI has not only been a partner for German industry and science, but is now also a direct cooperation partner of the VQWS e.V. – The shared interest is rooted in the systematic further development and establishment of technical rules and regulations that reflect the latest technological standards in industrial bolt technology, especially in the area of training and education. Future collaborative efforts will bring about many advantages to all members and certified trainers of the VQWS e.V., including the acquisition of technical regulations.
