Schüco International KG will soon be sponsoring German golf pro Martin Kaymer. The motto of the sponsorship agreement is "Martin Kaymer and Schüco - teeing off for a successful future with Energy2".

"What brings us together is the professional approach we both take to what we do", states Dirk U. Hindrichs, President and CEO of Schüco, explaining his company's new relationship with the two-time winner of

the European Tour. Hindrichs also notes that Schüco's corporate credo, "Energy2 - saving energy and generating energy", applies equally well to the world of golf, creating additional common ground.

What might seem to be an unusual partnership at first glance actually shows that golf and business have a great deal in common: Perfection and precision are vital not just in golf, but also in the development of windows, façades, and solar technology. But even the seemingly contradictory relationship between love of nature on the one hand and modern technology on the other is reflected in both golf and the advanced components made by Schüco. The sport combines an intensive experience of nature with the highest standards of technology and precision. By the same token, Schüco products blend innovative technology and energy-efficient solutions in harmony with nature.

"Striving for the highest standards of professionalism and a strong commitment to climate protection are both things that matter to me a lot. In Schüco, I've found a partner with the same goals that I have. That's why I'm so glad to be working together with them", declares Martin Kaymer. Dirk U. Hindrichs, too, sees many parallels between the golf pro and Schüco. He takes a bullish view of future cooperation between the two: "This is definitely a win-win situation where everybody stands to benefit, including the customers. Our corporate philosophy of "Energy2 - saving energy and generating energy" represents a whole in one for all of us", insists Hindrichs.

Martin Kaymer, born in1984 in Düsseldorf, is Germany's youngest ever winner of a European Tour tournament. After taking second place in the Dubai Desert Classic, Kaymer ranked 21 in the World Golf Ranking, and was awarded the title of European Tour Golfer of the Month for January 2008. In June of this year, Kaymer became the first German and youngest player ever to win the BMW International Open.
