bk Group nominated for the „Award for medium-sized enterprises 2017“
Europe’s market leader for shop-fitting ascends to the business elite amongst the German medium sized enterprises.

The subject of this year’s competition is more relevant than ever: “Healthy medium-sized companies – guarantee for economic and social stability”. The motto „respect and esteem“ is at the same time a selection criterion for the nomination for Germany’s most coveted business award.

Only one of thousand German companies achieves the goal to be registered for the selection list for which municipalities, associations, institutions and companies nominate outstanding medium-sized companies according to strict selection criteria. bk Group is amongst these companies.

This is a big success and a special honor for the mid-sized company which has its headquarters in Endsee, because the nomination for this renowned competition can be considered as a ticket that paves the way into the network of the socially committed business elite.

The „Award for medium-sized enterprises“ is the only business award that is not based on isolated economic criteria, but evaluates each company as a whole and considers its complex role in society.

CEO Gerold Wolfarth is glad: „This nomination makes us proud. It is an important privilege which can hardly be appreciated high enough, because there isn’t any possibility for companies to register on their own – only third parties can recommend a business as participant of the competition. The fact that we are on the list proves that both the people in the region and the market notice our commitment to entrepreneurial and social responsibility and recognize its value. As a company that acts on an international level and has employees from 27 European countries we live our cultural diversity every day. With respect and mutual trust. This is the base of our unique corporate culture which results in an excellent team spirit and makes us successful“.

The „Award for medium-sized enterprises“, founded by the Oskar Patzelt foundation in 1994, is the most coveted business award, according to the daily newspaper Die WELT, and thus an outstanding example for the exemplary success of the label brand „Made in Germany” renowned everywhere in the world. In 2008 and in 2016, the foundation itself has been awarded the Federal Cross of Merit, and furthermore, in 2015, the Company Change Award.

Concerning the jury’s decision about the selection of prize winners in September, Wolfarth stays reserved: „It is already an honor for us to range amongst the best companies, due to this nomination. Medium-sized companies which steer their course and set standards due to strong social values, intelligent strategies and innovations. Which develop their specific strength from long-term relations with their employees, suppliers and clients. Which are rooted in the region and internationally successful. It is the wish to be always beyond the edge that motivates us as bk Group, characterizes us and drives us on“.
