emz is among Bavaria's Best 50

It is the second time (since 2004) that emz Hanauer GmbH & Co. KGaA has received an award for being one of Bavaria's fastest-growing companies. Since then, its turnover has more than doubled. Being the world market leader for sensors and interlocks in large-size domestic appliances, with sales amounting to over 112 million euros, we have achieved record sales figures for this year, too. The headcount has grown accordingly.

More than 1,000 colleagues work for emz at the locations Germany, the Czech Republic, Mexico and China. This is why the new development center was inaugurated in Nabburg last year. According to Thomas Hanauer, General Manager, "continuous innovation is the reason why we have succeeded in growing worldwide at a faster pace than the markets".

The 50 medium-sized owner-managed companies in Bavaria featuring the highest growth figures received awards at Schleißheim Castle on 27 July 2017. For the Bavarian Minister of the Economy, Ilse Aigner, it was the 16th occasion at which she was invited to speak: "The success of the Bavarian Economy is based on the high number of excellent enterprises within the Free State. We give an award to the 50 most successful thereof. They have achieved excellent results as regards growth in turnover and headcount. We want to honour these role models and inspire them to pursue their targets with commitment and energy."
