joining forces with immediate effect. As the new, official premium partner,
Schüco - the leading provider of innovative building envelopes - will sponsor
the second largest umbrella association in Europe. This further extends the
Schüco commitment to golf that began back in 2008. Both parties hope to
profit through the partnership from multiple synergies with their common goal
of promoting German golf. The German Golf Association and Schüco will also
promote networking on the golf scene with a range of communication measures.

Golf as a growth factor

"Golf is booming. This is borne out in no small part by the enormous
growth in the number of club members. With the support of the German Golf
Association, Schüco is looking to advance this trend further. Just as in
golf, our company's innovative products also stand for green technology in
harmony with nature and the environment," explains Dirk U. Hindrichs,
President and CEO of Schüco International KG.

Hans Joachim Nothelfer, President of the German Golf Association, adds,
"We are delighted to welcome an experienced and ambitious partner in Schüco,

through the Schüco Open."

Schüco - Green Technology for the Blue Planet.

That means clean energy from solar products and windows. Or
more precisely, the contribution that Schüco makes to the environment as the
leading provider of innovative building envelopes. With Energy3 - saving
energy, generating energy and networking energy. Perfectly coordinated
window, door and façade systems save energy by providing optimum levels of
thermal insulation. The variety of solar solutions generates more clean
energy than the building consumes. And intelligent networking means that the
excess energy can be used - for example, for IT systems and electromobility.
The result is a significant step towards energy self-sufficiency. Towards the
sustainable conservation of natural resources. And towards 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 2.35 billion
in 2010.
