18/11/2016

After having been nominated, the Dr. Walser Dental GmbH first passed the jury level and then the final round, and was thus awarded with the Oscar of the medium-sized businesses.

Since the nomination Dr. Walser Dental had to present many details about the company to the jury, which was composed of experts of universities and economy. The complex questions and the following written answers had to contain besides economic, innovative and medium-size-oriented aspects also social, environmental and honorary criteria. More than 4700 companies had been nominated, but only few of them have reached the target.

Now the Jury decided that the manufacturer of dental instruments entered the final round and therefore deserves to be awarded. Consequently the Dr. Walser Dental remains a part of the Top companies of our country and was invited to the award ceremony which took place recently in Würzburg. During this ceremony the finalists of Baden-Württemberg were announced and honoured together with the finalists of Bavaria, Rheinland-Pfalz, Saarland und Hessen.

According to a benchmark survey, the Grand Prix of the medium-sized businesses is the most important business award in Germany. In cooperation with ministries, a lot of other institutions and organizations, as well as the media and together with the Chambers of Industry and Trade, the Chambers of Crafts, the Regional Commissions and the cities and communities, the Oskar-Patzelt-Stiftung in Leipzig is the representative of this award.

The remarkable performance of medium-sized businesses is barely noticed in public. But despite the critical world-economic and national-economic development these companies reached to generate millions of additional jobs over the past years. Honouring these efforts is the aim of the Oskar-Patzelt-Stiftung based in Leipzig and representative of this annual nationwide competition. The motto is: “Healthy medium-sized businesses – Strong economy – More jobs”.
