"GEMÜ honoured as "Global Market Leader" for 2018 – the third year in a row" by GEMÜ Gebr. Müller Apparatebau GmbH & Co. KG

The Ingelfingen-based specialist in valves has been awarded the title of "Global Market Leader" for yet another year, earning the distinction for 2018 as part of the global market leader index of the University of St. Gallen and the Academy of German Global Market Leaders.

For the third time in succession, the German business magazine WirtschaftsWoche has awarded the family-owned enterprise GEMÜ Gebrüder Müller Apparatebau GmbH & Co. KG the WirtschaftsWoche quality seal of "Global Market Leader", declaring them "champions" of 2018. In doing so, WirtschaftsWoche has recognised GEMÜ's inclusion in the global market leader index in the segment "Valves and automation components: Valves, Process and Control systems for sterile applications".

The global market leader index is compiled under the scientific direction of Prof. Dr Christoph Müller of the HBM Unternehmerschule (school for entrepreneurs) at the University of St. Gallen, in cooperation with the Academy of German Global Market Leaders (ADWM). In doing so, objective selection criteria and transparent selection processes are developed to determine the actual global market leaders. The information acquired is then scientifically evaluated and the results are published in a condensed form.

The researchers designate companies as "Global Market Leader Champions" where they are – among other criteria – represented on at least three continents with their own production and/or sales companies, have an annual turnover of at least €50 million, are first or second in the relevant market segment, and can demonstrate an export share or foreign share of at least 50% of their turnover. Another important criterion for a company to obtain the accolade of "Global Market Leader Champion" is to be (owner-)managed with headquarters in the German-speaking region (Germany, Austria or Switzerland).

As a family-owned, owner-managed business headquartered in Ingelfingen-Criesbach (in the German state of Baden-Württemberg), with 27 subsidiaries as well as six manufacturing sites in Germany, Switzerland, China, Brazil, France and the USA, GEMÜ fully satisfies these requirements. In addition to these prerequisites, it was the cutting-edge technology and market leadership in the field of valves, process and control systems for sterile applications that served as a crucial factor for WirtschaftsWoche in awarding the accolade and WirtschaftsWoche quality seal of "Global Market Leader 2018 – Champions" to GEMÜ.

 "We are proud to be represented as a global market leader in the current index and for the third year in a row. This award from WirtschaftsWoche has shown and confirmed to us that it is truly worth focusing on customer requirements, product quality and the continuous further development of our product range," says Gert Müller, Managing Partner at GEMÜ. "As it is based on scientific methods," he adds,"this award serves as confirmation of GEMÜ's worldwide success and its dominance of the technological market."
