The HARTING Technology Group has received an award from the insurer FM Global for the third time in recognition of its outstanding company safety and supply reliability. On this occasion, the much-coveted award has gone to the local subsidiary HARTING Electric.

The HARTING plant in Sibiu (Romania) previously received the award for obtaining highly protected risk (HPR) status from the industrial property insurer FM Global this year, the HARTING plant in Zhuhai (China) in 2011. HARTING has been presented with this award because the Espelkamp-based family company takes extensive precautionary measures to address safety-relevant risks and has significantly minimized failure risk for its national and international customers as a dependable supplier.

“We are delighted to receive another award. Companies with HPR status benefit from significantly reduced loss risk. HARTING has once again been recognized as a dependable and trustworthy supplier in the industry”, as Torsten Ratzmann, Senior Vice President Production and Logistics at the HARTING Technology Group stated.

“We have made significant investments in recent years to protect the HARTING locations concerned and in overall company safety and supply reliability”, remarked Maresa Harting-Hertz, Senior Vice President Finance and Purchasing. She also explained that HARTING had implemented the individual safety measures in close collaboration with experts from FM Global.

HARTING extended a sprinkler system at one plant as well as carrying out additional structural work. Such measures significantly reduce loss risk. Insurers regard fire, storm and other elemental damage as risks that can quickly cause extensive damage and destruction of tangible corporate assets.
