Value Creation, Consistency & Trust - We Say Thank You!

The stars of the domestic economy were chosen on this evening and we were right in the middle of it! This makes us incredibly proud, especially because value creation, consistency and trust played a leading role on this evening and this - as we try to live it - also completely corresponds to our values.

That's probably how it feels for the other top family businesses, one per state, chosen as the winner from many great companies....

"We offer our sincere congratulations!"
