The ‘Großen Preis des Mittelstandes‘ award has been the single most popular business award in Germany since 1994. The award is focused on evaluating businesses as a whole, not just on numbers, jobs or innovation. Every November, the Oskar-Patzelt-Foundation invites nominations of medium-sized companies for the competition from communities, associations, organizations and companies. The nomination can be for medium-sized companies from the industrial, commercial, service and trade sectors.
The businesses are evaluated according to five competition criteria:
• Overall development of the business
• Creation and safeguarding of jobs and apprenticeships
• Modernization and innovation
• Involvement in the region
• Service and customer focus, marketing
The winner and the finalists are decided by twelve regional juries and a final jury. In each competition region, there can be three prize winners selected from five finalists.
The official announcement was made on September 18, 2021, at a Gala evening in Würzburg, Germany. Jakob Jonsson (CCO) received the prize on behalf of Pedex GmbH, a prize winner for Hesse.
Pedex GmbH is proud to have won the award and is looking forward to the announcement of the national winner which will place in Dresden on October 30, 2021.
