25th Jubilee of our subsidiary

25 years ago, the HARTING Technology Group opened a subsidiary in Prague, Czech
Republic. Since that time, the local HARTING s.r.o. has enjoyed an extremely
successful development.

This was also a point that Chairman of the Board Philip Harting emphasised during a gala
evening celebrated with customers, employees and representatives of the German-Czech
Board of Trade in Palais Martinic: “The decision to locate in the Czech Republic was a
thoroughly worthwhile step. It quickly became clear to us, after the political changes and
upheavals, that this region was a promising market for the future. It was therefore the obvious
decision to strengthen our activities in Eastern Europe and, in the course of our
internationalisation, which began in 1979, to gain a foothold here as well.
