"25 years of TQ-Group - 25 years of technology" - this was the motto of the TQ-EXPO, which took place at TQ's headquarters at Gut Delling from 3 to 5 July to mark the company's 25th anniversary. For several days, TQ employees, their families, TQ applicants and customers could have a closer look in the world of TQ. In an exhibition, products could be seen up close, touched and tried out. Special highlights were the guided tour through the production halls and of course, as a grand finale, the guest speakers Peter Schlickenrieder and Prof. Dr. Sami Haddadin.
From embedded modules to e-bikes and e-skateboards, collaborative Franka-Panda robots to the groundbreaking interactive whiteboard Weframe - TQ's technology can be found in a wide variety of products. In order to be able to experience this live, TQ had set up an extensive program for different target groups: an open house for employees and relatives on Wednesday, a recruiting on Thursday and finally the TQ-Expo for customers on Friday.
The goal was always to make TQ a live experience as a company and as a developer, manufacturer and system service provider. Thus TQ offered real insights behind the scenes with guided tours through the production and exciting test drives with the Mellow E-Skateboard or the E-Bike with the extraordinary 120Nm drive of TQ. All new products, including the robot Franka Panda and the intelligent therapy bed "Vemo" from the Munich startup Reactive Robotics, were on display, could be admired and tried out.
On Friday the TQ-Expo and the annual summer party with 600 guests was the biggest event planned. Expert lectures and workshops, specially planned by TQ employees, gave many customers the opportunity to exchange information on megatrends and developments in the technology and electronics industry across all industries. The fact that they were all TQ customers created a unique and lively atmosphere. "We are very pleased that we had the opportunity to present the entire spectrum of our technologies, products and services and to hold very good technical discussions with our customers about developments and trends in the future. Our employees thrilled the customers with their presentations and that makes us especially proud as TQ", says Detlef Schneider, one of the managing directors of TQ.
The lecture series reached the climate with by Peter Schlickenrieder, with his experiences as Olympic medal winner and acting national coach in cross-country skiing, as well as Prof. Dr. Sami Haddadin, awarded the Innovation Prize of the Federal President in 2017, Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prize winner in 2019 and one of the most renowned scientists in the field of robotics and machine learning, and inventor and founder of Franka Emika. Haddadin gave exciting insights into the development and future of robotics, but also into the significance of the Munich region as the "cradle of robotics", high-tech location and driving force for robotics research.
Following the informative day, the annual TQ summer party took place in the evening and ended with a cosy get-together to celebrate the 25th anniversary and the successful history of the company.
The event took place at the place where the company was founded and is still headquartered today - at Gut Delling. In 1994 Detlef Schneider and Rüdiger Stahl founded TQ-Systems. "What has happened in electronics since then is absolutely unbelievable. Since our foundation, we have grown from an electronics service provider to a technology company with around 1670 employees at eleven locations in Germany and three international locations in Switzerland, the USA and China." explains Detlef Schneider.
