Barthelme honoured at BAYERNS BEST 50 awards

The LED lighting specialist, Josef Barthelme GmbH Co. KG, has been voted one of BAYERNS BEST 50 companies and now rates among the 50 strongest growing midsize companies in Bavaria. Trade Minister Ilse Aigner personally handed out the award from the Bavarian State Ministry for Commerce and Media, Energy and Technology during an awards ceremony at the Munich Residency on 29. July 2015.

“BAYERNS BEST 50 is awarded not only to the strongest growing midsize companies in terms of turnover, but also to those who have increased staff numbers at an exceptional level. We have been honouring those companies for their social responsibility including creating jobs in Bavaria”, the Trade Minister explained.

“The technical expertise and the personal dedication of all of our employees to customer service and to the product are driving factors in the innovation, strength and success of our company. This award is recognition of the sustainable investment in people and equipment as we continue the transformation from classical distributor to a designer and manufacturer of high quality LED lighting systems”, said Nicola Barthelme, the very proud company owner and manager. Barthelme made a major commitment to its operations in Bavaria two years ago with the expansion of the production facilities in Nuremburg for the “Made in Germany” product range, and laid the foundation for further growth in the dynamic LED lighting sector.   

BAYERNS BEST 50 annual awards have been made for the fourteenth time. More than 2000 midsize companies from all regions and industries were invited to participate and finally 50 were chosen as having best exceeded the selection criteria. The accounting and consulting company, Baker Tilly Roelfs, was responsible for the transparency and objectivity of the process.
