Handmade in Germany. Manufactory 4.0

Manu­fac­to­ries from Germany have a world­wide repu­ta­tion. Whether porce­lain, watches, organs or writing instru­ments — the mastery finds its origin in the tradi­tional crafts­man­ship training in Central Europe, which is part of the imma­te­rial cultural heritage. However, in the 21st century, the funda­mental processes of change brought about by digi­tal­i­sa­tion and glob­al­i­sa­tion are clearly notice­able to every indi­vidual. Manu­fac­to­ries too must rein­vent them­selves in the face of the world market: They are relying on future tech­nolo­gies and trying to combine the vision of a “Manu­fac­ture 4.0” with the classic self-image of the work­shops. This is how glob­ally networked compa­nies emerge that are oriented towards human dimen­sions and are concerned with sustain­ability in their produc­tion. Hand­made in Germany. Manu­fac­tory 4.0. provides an insight into the prac­tice and future ideas of the most impor­tant German manu­fac­to­ries.
