Mozambican President Armando Emilio Guebuza, accompanied by a high-ranking delegation including five ministers and the Mozambican ambassador, visited Kaercher in Winnenden. During his state visit to Germany, the President took the opportunity to find out about innovative cleaning technology and mobile catering systems.

President Guebuza was given a brief overview of Kaercher’s entire range of cleaning technology for professional users and consumers. The company’s subsidiary Kaercher Futuretech GmbH demonstrated various drinking water treatment systems and the MFK 2/96 mobile catering system. The schedule further included an inspection of the world’s most modern test track for sweepers and scrubber driers, and a short talk on research and development.

“As a highly innovative, family-owned company with subsidiaries worldwide, we can provide effective solutions for Mozambique, especially in the field of drinking water supply,” said Hartmut Jenner, chairman of the board of Alfred Kaercher. “A Kaercher plant enables you to produce up to 240,000 litres of purest drinking water from wells, springs, ponds, streams or other surface water, even in isolated regions.”

Kaercher has 6,540 employees in 41 countries. The cleaning equipment specialist manufactures its appliances in Germany, Italy, the US, Brazil, Mexico and China. In the financial year 2006 Kärcher posted its highest-ever sales, €1.254 billion, and sold 6.07 million appliances, more than ever before in the company’s history.
