The AK GGS continues to grow

Published at 01.03.2015

Frankfurt / Germany, March 2015 - AK GGS, founded in 2013, continues to grow. As an independent association of all industries involved in commercial dishwashing, it endeavors to increase the compatibility of the individual components and thereby realize optimization potential in commercial dishwashing.

Well-known manufacturers of commercial dishwashers, water treatment devices, cleaning products, dosing technology and wash ware as well as the supplier industry have been working closely together since the foundation to provide practical recommendations, e.g. for end users or planners and to simplify the fulfillment of European and international standards. With BWT water + more, Stockmeier Chemie and W.A.L. Water technology, three other companies have been active in AK GGS since January 2015 and contribute their expertise.

New board

As part of the general assembly, the rolling chairmanship was re-elected for one year. Rüdiger Nübling (Hobart) as chairman and Marion Zwingenberger (Chemische Fabrik Dr. Weigert) as deputy had accompanied the intensive start-up phase. Above all, they set the course for the publication of the compendium of practice, the heart of the work of the AK GGS. Grateful for the work done, the new chairman André Funke (Ecolab) and Dagmar Wienböker (Winterhalter Gastronom GmbH) will take over the management of the working group as deputies. The first chapters of the compendium of practice will soon be available for download.
