Given the challenging market environment, our North American subsidiaries still delivered good results for the year. Capitalizing on their reputation and market 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 Engineering News-Record. The company is also ranked first in the green building, healthcare, education, offices, industrial, cultural facilities, sports facilities, and hotels categories.
During the year under review, we expanded our research and development network in a targeted manner, expanding it to 22 locations in ten countries. Our biggest facilities are in Sindelfingen and Stuttgart-Untertürkheim in Germany. In Sunnyvale, California, the new headquarters of our research facilities in North America, approximately 100 people are employed at present and this number is scheduled to be doubled.
In the USA, we have created a cross-cutting product development platform which draws particularly on the know-how of Hartford Steam Boiler, American Modern and Munich Re America to develop new, innovative products for the North American market. Naturally, we also make use of all the other synergies which can be achieved via our business units in the U.S. market. Here too, it is apparent that we are stronger and more innovative as a group than individual companies could be.
