BHS-Sonthofen wins medium-sized business award “BAVARIA’S BEST 50”

October 7, 2021
Every year, the “BAVARIA’S BEST 50” award honors owner-managed companies in Bavaria that have achieved above-average employee and sales growth in the previous five years. Dennis Kemmann, Managing Director of BHS-Sonthofen, accepted the award in person from the Bavarian State Secretary for Economic Affairs, Roland Weigert, at the Munich Residence.

The accounting and consulting firm Baker Tilly determined the winners for the prestigious award: BHS-Sonthofen is one of the 50 most dynamic companies in the Free State. Acquisitions of companies and their integration into the Group to expand the service portfolio were an important growth factor. In addition, investments in the in-house test center enabled comprehensive development projects and customer trials. Major international projects also led to strong growth in sales and the number of employees, especially at the site in Germany. New jobs for skilled workers that form the foundation for Bavaria’s high standard of living were created.

“In the past one and a half years, we successfully mastered the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic while simultaneously pursuing the further development and expansion of our company as a supplier of process technology solutions and machines in all divisions. This was made possible by identifying and consistently exploiting new opportunities for growth and employment,” said Kemmann, summing up the past eventful years and thanking in particular the employees, customers, and suppliers who made this success possible in the first place. “Creativity and foresight have thus contributed significantly to our economic strength. We are therefore very pleased about this recognition. The porcelain lion stands for entrepreneurial courage, responsibility for the company and its employees, and forward-looking business management.”
