Siegfried Weishaupt honoured by the Association of German Engineers (VDI)

Dipl.-Ing. Siegfried Weishaupt has been awarded with the VDI’s Honour Medal in recognition of his services to the German heating industry. The honour was presented on 5 October 2012 during the VDI Construction and Building Services Society’s annual convention in Strasbourg. The speech honouring Mr Weishaupt was given by Professor Jürgen Tenhumberg of the Trier University of Applied Sciences.

The VDI was founded in 1856, and with nearly 150,000 personal members is the largest engineering association in Germany, and also one of the largest technical-scientific associations in Europe. The VDI’s Honour Medal has been awarded since 1948. Made of bronze, the obverse bears the image of a torch-bearer and the circumscription ‘Der Zweck der Arbeit soll das Gemeinwohl sein’ (‘The purpose of work should be the common good’). The reverse depicts the VDI cogwheel and is inscribed ‘Für Verdienste um die Technik und den VDI’ (‘For services to Engineering and the VDI’).

The Weishaupt Group has over 3,000 employees and is a leading company in the fields of burners, condensing boilers, heat pumps, solar energy, and building automation. Since 2009 the business, which was founded in 1932, has been organised as a holding company for its Energy Technology (Weishaupt), Energy Recovery (BauGrund Süd), and Energy Management (Neuberger Gebäudeautomation) divisions.
