Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

Continuous innovation and customer orientation are the central cornerstones of economic success. The owner-managed technology company Berthold Technologies from Bad Wildbad, Germany, can look back on a 75-year success story in which the family-owned company has grown continuously and made a name for itself far beyond the borders of our country. With the slogan "Rooted in the Black Forest, but at home in the world", Berthold Technologies as a medium-sized company perfectly reflects the economic strength of our export-oriented economy in Baden-Württemberg.

Modern measurement technology is an indispensable part of automation. Only with the help of highly reliable and precise measurement solutions can companies create high-quality products and thus gain a strategic competitive advantage. With its innovative measurement technology solutions in the fields of life sciences, process control and radiation protection, the measurement technology specialist Berthold Technologies also contributes to the economic success of its customers. They have been able to rely on the company's outstanding solutions for 75 years.

The company has sophisticated know-how in the field of non-contact process measurement technology in different environmental and process conditions and can therefore best serve the constantly new and individual measurement tasks of the various applications. The company's life science solutions are also in demand worldwide for the development of integrated system solutions for bioanalytical purposes in a laboratory environment. In addition, the product portfolio includes solutions in the field of radiation protection measurements in a demanding and highly regulated area where reliable and precise measured values are particularly important.

As a country, we are proud to be home to such an innovative, family-owned technology company, and I would like to congratulate you on your 75th anniversary.

I wish you continued success in the future!
