This time we have big news to announce! Only every thousandth company in Germany makes it onto the nomination list for the “great price for medium-sized companies”. Our managing director Fabian Baldus is incredibly proud of this milestone, which the company has achieved through the active cooperation of every employee. An incredible success for Baldus Medizintechnik GmbH!
Nomination was made by the jury
It is particularly exciting that no one can apply for the nomination itself, because the selection is made by a jury. The competition for the big prize for medium-sized businesses in 2020 is seen as a springboard into the "network of the best". Aspects of the jury were not only innovation, but also the company as a whole within its role in society and, of course, the jobs.
In addition, the large price for small and medium-sized businesses is the only business award in the whole of Germany. Today's President of the Bundestag, Dr. Wolfgang Schäuble said in 2017 as Federal Minister of Finance: “Small and medium-sized businesses are and will remain a guarantee of stability and trust in Germany. I warmly congratulate the nominees and the award winners at the “Grand Prize for Medium-Sized Enterprises”. You deserve it."
The prestigious event therefore also serves to promote the globally respected “Made in Germany” brand. It should be noted that we at Baldus Medizintechnik GmbH develop and manufacture our products in Germany. To ensure that this continues to be of excellent quality in the future, we will be soon a new company headquarters erect.
The big price of the middle class in the overview
The big prize for medium-sized companies has been taking place annually since 1995, but it continues until 2005 Oscar for the middle class was called. The award is given by the Oskar Patzelt Foundation. On average, around 5,000 companies from all over Germany are nominated.
The award was founded mainly because medium-sized companies should again enjoy more recognition and attention, because social and economic benefits enrich society immensely.
A total of 13 juries (including 12 from the competitive regions and a federal jury) select the companies based on certain criteria, including engagement in the region, customer proximity and service, modernization and innovation, and the creation of secure jobs and training positions. Last but not least, the overall development of the company is also assessed.
Five companies are honored. Three winners receive an award for the best results and five finalists each receive an award for very good results. The federal jury also awards various special prizes.
The importance of the event
A nomination is already a high distinction and means recognition and respect: "Those who have been nominated here have already received a first-class award through this selection alone," said Barbara Stamm, President of the Bavarian State Parliament.
In addition, the Network of the best also contact options, which may lead to future collaborations. The development of a company is particularly important on the international medical technology market, from which customers and patients will benefit.
The nomination is once again a confirmation of our work and Customer satisfactionthat we only examined at the end of last year. It came out that we received top marks from our customers. Above all, the excellent product quality, service, regular maintenance and ease of use were praised.
We would also like to thank Mr. Henning Schröder from the Mayen-Koblenz Economic Development Agency for the nomination!
