Under Governor Haslam’s leadership, we are working to further our reputation as a business-friendly state with skilled workers ready for employment,” Hagerty said. “Our state is competing globally, as well as nationally, for new development, and it is heartening to hear of existing businesses like Hönigsberg & Düvel finding success in their industries and expanding opportunities for Tennesseans.” 

“Tennessee has been wonderful partner for Hönigsberg & Düvel, and we thank Governor Haslam and Commissioner Hagerty for helping us add jobs,” said Heiko Juerges, President and CEO of H&D Corporation. “We also appreciate the Chattanooga Area Chamber of Commerce for helping us connect with local and state resources.”

Hönigsberg & Düvel established its presence in Chattanooga in 2009 as a point of entry to the U.S. market,” Chattanooga Mayor Ron Littlefield said. “It’s heartening to see them grow from that starting point.”
