ORWO Net 's move!

Dresden, 26/06/2008

ORWO Net to become Co-Sponsor of the Chess Olympiad

Photo service provider ORWO Net presents book and calendar for the Chess Olympiad. Mayor Winfried Lehmann welcomed ORWO Net GbmH CEO Gerhard Köhler in Dresden Tuesday for the contractual agreement and thanked him for the engagement by the company from Bitterfeld-Wolfen: “The photo books and the calendar are an ideal extension of our product range concerning the Chess Olympiad. A strong partner like ORWO Net is always attractive for such a big sporting event as the Chess Olympiad.“



Köhler himself is active chess player and highlights his love to the game with this partnership. „We consider the Olympiad to be an excellent opportunity to present our products and services to a wide public. That such a top-class event is organized in this part of Europe was indeed an additional incentive. Besides, I myself was two-time third at GDR Youth Championships and have met numerous master norms. The game of chess has improved my strategic and analytical thinking. These are features from which today I profit as enterpreneur.“

99 years ago the construction of a film manufactory, which at first carried the name Agfa and was renamed into ORWO in 1964, was launched at Wolfen. The tradition, more and more digitalized, is being continued today by the ORWO Net GmbH. Most of the turnover the company makes through the production of digital pictures (66,2 %). This market segment is represented by the label ‚PixelNet’. Under ‚ORWO direkt’ the analog photo business from development to exposure of classical films is being actuated. Contrary to the overall market development ORWO Net could gain an increase of 63 % of sales in 2007.
