Employees of ThyssenKrupp AG Worldwide : 156,000

Chosen: I have been researching statistics in preparation for our trip to Mulheim as part of The Impulse Festival of Theater at the end of June. One major local employer is the international company ThyssenKrupp. The company was formed from the merger of Friedrich Krupp AG and Thyssen AG in 1999. Friedrich Krupp AG built the pressure sphere for the bathyscape ‘Trieste’ which took Jacques Piccard and Don Walsh into the deepest known part of the oceans, the Mariana Trench on 23rd January 1960. This moment of human exploration and endeavour is one that we often include in the show.
