Unterschleissheim, August 1, 2017
It has been official since July 27, 2017: Keller & Kalmbach ranks among the 50 best medium-sized enterprises in Bavaria, Germany. Bavaria's Economic Affairs Minister Ilse Aigner presented the white porcelain lion in a festive atmosphere at Schleißheim Castle, Oberschleißheim. Aigner: "With the Bavaria's Best 50 Award, we honor the best companies in Bavaria. They have delivered exceptional results in terms of growth of both sales revenues and employee numbers, just like the family business Keller & Kalmbach. The award is intended to honor this hard work and, at the same time, act as motivation for all Bavarian companies to pursue their goals with drive and commitment".
This year marks the sixteenth time that the Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs, Energy, and Technology has presented owner-managed businesses in Bavaria with the "Bavaria's Best 50" title. The 50 small and medium-sized companies in Bavaria with the strongest growth, which stand out through excellent economic and social performance, got together at Schleißheim Castle for the award ceremony. Beside meeting the official assessment criteria, the award winners all act as forerunners in the sector, as well as sharing a sense of humility and focusing keenly on customer benefits - typically with global alignment. In addition to this, they place emphasis on sustainability in terms of resource usage and a high degree of employee loyalty.
In the last few years, Keller & Kalmbach has been able to increase its sales revenue and its employee numbers at an above-average rate. The jury therefore acknowledged the particularly strong growth with the award ceremony. For more than 40 years, Dr. Florian Seidl has sat at the top of the family business founded in 1878, combining innovation with tradition. Thanks to entrepreneurial courage, development of new business models, and continuity throughout times of change, he has made Keller & Kalmbach a genuine success story. "Our customers put a high priority on specialist and technical excellence, as well as optimum business processes. This is a good incentive for us to continuously further develop our company," comments Seidl. The employer attaches particular importance to cooperation, as a company's history is ultimately not written by just one person, but rather together with employees, colleagues, customers, and suppliers.
