A world leader through outstanding innovation and performance

The latest edition of the ‘Lexikon der deutschen Weltmarkführer’ (‘Encyclopaedia of German Global Market Leaders’) clearly presents the outstanding position of German companies on the global markets. These are largely characterised by their leading stance with regard to quality and technology. This also applies to Carl Stahl GmbH from Süßen, which was included in this standard reference work for the first time in 2015 and presented with the medal for global market leadership at the official book launch party.

The encyclopaedia offers a fascinating cross-sectoral overview of the companies that have established an outstanding position on the global markets with their products. Like Carl Stahl GmbH many of these are family run and medium sized. The high quality of the work is guaranteed by a high-profile advisory board including distinguished representatives of German industrial associations, the media and research institutions. Prof. Bernd Venohr’s database of German global market leaders was used as the basis for the research.

Book launch at Würth Art Gallery in Schwäbisch Hall

The editor and publisher Dr Florian Langenscheidt emphasised: “German global market leaders take on a leading role with regard to quality and technology. These strengths and skills tend to go unnoticed by the general public.” The official book launch was therefore celebrated as part of the global market leaders’ summit at Würth Art Gallery in the town of Schwäbisch Hall. During the event, Carl Stahl GmbH was presented with the medal for global market leadership, which marketing director Oliver Hommel accepted on behalf of the company: “We are proud of this award and our inclusion in the Encyclopaedia of German Global Market Leaders. This once again shows that Carl Stahl GmbH is a reliable and innovative partner – for both existing customers and potential clients worldwide.”

Foreword by the Minister for Foreign Affairs Dr Frank-Walter Steinmeier

The first copy of the book was actually presented to Dr Frank-Walter Steinmeier the day before the launch. The Minister for Foreign Affairs provided a foreword for the new edition of this standard reference work. This states: “The success of German global market leaders is due to more than just a keen sense of market opportunities and outstanding innovativeness. Reason, responsibility and a long-term focus – these are the values that define the way these companies work and give them their outstanding reputation.”
