The Managing Directors of Gleistein Ropes, Klaus Walther and Thomas Schlaetzer are the proud holders of the 2011 “Bremen Entrepreneurs of the Year” Award. The ASU Independent Entrepreneurs association extended this special honour at a 600-person gala event that was hosted by the Bremen Sparkasse (savings bank) in Germany on 26 May. With the prize, ASU aims to reward successful, yet most importantly, responsible entrepreneurship. Boasting a tradition that dates back to 1824, Gleistein Ropes is Bremen’s oldest family-run company. It enjoys an enviable reputation as a responsible employer, which is not least reason for its ongoing success extending across the globe.
