Goldhofer AG was recently chosen for the 2017 Global Market Leader Champion award by experts of the University of St. Gallen and the Academy of German Global Market Leaders.
Created in 2015, the Global Market Leader Index* is used to identify companies in the DACH countries (Germany, Austria, Switzerland) who are world market leaders in their respective fields. The latest nominee in the category “Heavy haulage and oversized cargo transportation vehicles” is the Memmingen company Goldhofer AG, and they are now the proud bearers of the title “Global Market Leader Champion 2017”. The award, made by a team of experts from the University of St. Gallen and the Academy of German Global Market Leaders for various industries, is all the more prestigious for being based on an objective and fully transparent selection process performed with the help of a dedicated database.
The relevant indicators are calculated by the team of experts on the basis of their own research and regularly updated. The higher level criteria include presence on the international market, annual net sales and export share, and head count. Dr Christoph Müller, Professor of Business Management at the University of St. Gallen and project manager of the Global Market Leader Index, explains: “Global Market Leaders are models of highly successful entrepreneurial activity that we – in both the business and scientific communities – can learn from.”
A “model” in its own industry – that is something the German specialist for transport solutions in the field of heavy haulage and oversize cargo transportation is determined to be in the future, too, and the company accordingly keeps its annual facts and figures under very close scrutiny. Rainer Auerbacher, Goldhofer’s Director of International Sales, puts it like this: “For us, the award is not just about recognition for what we have already achieved; it is also an incentive to defend our global market leadership through excellent performance and satisfied customers. And we look forward to doing just that in 2018 and beyond.”
