review,
we expanded our
research and development
network

manner, expanding it to
22 locations in ten countries.
Our biggest facilities are
in Sindelfingen and
Stuttgart-Untertürkheim
inGermany. In
Sunnyvale,
California, the new
headquarters of our
research facilities inNorth
America,
approximately
100 people are employed
at present and this number
is scheduled to be doubled.
HOCHTIEF
Given the challengingmarket
environment, our North
American subsidiaries still
delivered good results for the
year. Capitalizing on their
reputation andmarket position,
they secured attractive new
orders.
Turner continued to
hold its own as number one
U.S. general builder,
as
reflected in the latest ranking
from EngineeringNews-
Record.
The company is also
ranked first in the green
building,
healthcare,
education, offices, industrial,
cultural facilities, sports
facilities, and hotels categories.
Munich Re
In theUSA, we have created
a cross-cutting product
development platformwhich
draws particularly
on the
know-howof Hartford Steam
Boiler, AmericanModernand
MunichReAmerica to
developnew, innovative
products
for theNorth
Americanmarket. Naturally,
we alsomake use of all the
other synergies which can be
achieved via our business units
in theU.S. market. Here too,
it is apparent that we are
stronger andmore innovative
as agroup than individual
companies couldbe.
