Klasmann-Deilmann awar­ded tit­le of “Glo­bal Mar­ket Lea­der 2018”

Results of the Uni­ver­si­ty of St. Gal­len and the Aca­de­my of Ger­man World Mar­ket Leaders

What are the cha­rac­te­ris­tics of a glo­bal mar­ket lea­der? What cri­te­ria do com­pa­nies have to meet and who can use this tit­le? The world mar­ket lea­der index by the Uni­ver­si­ty of St. Gal­len and the Aca­de­my of Ger­man World Mar­ket Lea­ders lists Klasmann-Deilmann as “Glo­bal Mar­ket Lea­der Cham­pion 2018”.

Every year the Hen­ri B. Mei­er Exe­cu­ti­ve School of Manage­ment Tech­no­lo­gy and Law at the Uni­ver­si­ty of St. Gal­len loo­ks at which com­pa­nies belong to the world mar­ket lea­ders. The­se com­pa­nies are lis­ted in the world mar­ket lea­der index deve­lo­ped in coope­ra­ti­on with the ADWM (Aca­de­my of Ger­man World Mar­ket Lea­ders). The list also inclu­des Klasmann-Deilmann.

The­se are the cri­te­ria we had to ful­fil in order to be awar­ded the tit­le of “Glo­bal Mar­ket Lea­der Cham­pions” in the D‑A-CH region:

  • Manage­ment and head­quar­ters loca­ted 50% in the D‑A-CH region.
  • Com­pa­nies must have their own pro­duc­tion faci­li­ties and/or sales com­pa­nies on at least three of the six continents.
  • Annu­al sales of at least EUR 50 million.
  • Sales are gene­ra­ted at least 50% abroad.
  • The­se com­pa­nies have the lar­gest or second lar­gest mar­ket share in the rele­vant mar­ket segment.

This year, 461 com­pa­nies in Ger­ma­ny were awar­ded the tit­le of “Glo­bal Mar­ket Lea­der” on the basis of the­se cri­te­ria. By con­trast, accord­ing to the Wirt­schafts­Wo­che maga­zi­ne two thirds of the alle­ged world mar­ket lea­ders fai­led to com­ply with the sti­pu­la­ti­ons. By being lis­ted on the world mar­ket lea­der index, Klasmann-Deilmann now finds its­elf in the com­pa­ny of other renow­ned firms such as BASF, Daim­ler or Sie­mens as well as Mey­er-Werft and Röch­ling from our own region.

We are natu­ral­ly very plea­sed to be awar­ded this tit­le”, says Nor­bert Siebels, Mana­ging Direc­tor of Klasmann-Deilmann. “It is both a reward and fur­ther moti­va­ti­on for a medi­um-sized com­pa­ny to be lis­ted in the world mar­ket lea­der index of a renow­ned uni­ver­si­ty.” Mana­ging Direc­tor Moritz Böcking adds: “The award is an addi­tio­nal reco­gni­ti­on par­ti­cu­lar­ly for our employees, as their dai­ly com­mit­ment to our cus­to­mers has been ack­now­led­ged by an inde­pen­dent institution.”
