Solar energy as an effective sign

"My home state of Florida is a sunshine paradise. But anywhere on the
planet, solar energy is an important factor for setting an example for
climate protection. Schüco has the necessary know-how and technological
possibilities. I'm looking forward to my new job as a Schüco brand
ambassador, because I can contribute something towards bringing the strong
idea behind Schüco to the world. It will be an exciting time," said Bubba
, who has two PGA Tour victories under his belt and was a member of the
American Ryder Cup team in 2010. Dirk U. Hindrichs, the President and CEO of
Schüco International KG, had this to say about the cooperation with the
American all-around golfer: "We're looking forward to the partnership. With
Bubba Watson we have an outstanding professional golfer from the USA at our
side as a brand ambassador. With his friendly, winning ways, he will credibly
represent the Schüco brand particularly on the American market. Schüco and
professional golf are a perfect match. In addition to having a connection to
nature, for both Schüco and golf, excellent technique, the utmost precision,
absolute perfection, and efficient usage of energy are decisive success

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 precise, with Energy3: 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 for a secure future. With more than 5000 employees and 12,000 partner
companies, Schüco is active in more than 75 countries worldwide and achieved
turnover of 2.38 billion euros in 2010.
