Ungerhausen. They are regarded as the “pride” and “soul of the German economy”: the medium-sized companies. One of the best performers among them is the company Alois Müller. The familiy-owned company from the Lower Allgäu convinced the jury of the Oskar Patzelt Foundation at the first attempt and was awarded as a finalist with the “Großer Preis des Mittelstandes” on September 12th in Würzburg. With this award, the company prevailed over strong competitors. Nationwide, 3,142 small and medium-sized companies were nominated for this year’s competition. The nomination of Alois Müller was made by the District Office of Unterallgäu.
The “Großer Preis des Mittelstandes” was awarded for the 26th time and has developed over the years into the most important German business prize. No other economic competition in Germany achieves such a great resonance as the SME prize awarded by the Leipzig Oskar Patzelt Foundation. The prize is not endowed – for companies, it is all about honor, public recognition and confirmation of their achievements.
Andreas Müller, CEO, accepted the coveted prize-winner statue at the award gala in Würzburg “We are very proud of this award. Many successful companies from a wide range of industries were nominated for the award. We have managed to convince the jury. The award confirms our corporate goals and is motivation to continue on the path we have chosen”.
In its laudatory speech for the energy and building technology specialist, the jury particularly emphasized the innovative strength and employee development as well as the energy- and cost-efficient Green Factory at the Ungerhausen site.
