Blickle featured in 'The Best of German Mittelstand' encyclopaedia

Under the title 'The Best of German Mittelstand', Cologne-based trade publishing company Deutsche Standards EDITIONEN will present two English volumes at this year's ambassador conference business day on 25 August 2015 at the Federal Foreign office in Berlin. The publications present around 100 select companies that represent successful, responsible entrepreneurship and enable an exclusive look into the unique German corporate landscape.

The "THE FAMILY BUSINESSES" volume draws on the 2014 "Lexikon der deutschen Familienunternehmen" encyclopaedia of German family businesses and presents around 100 family businesses with key information on their history, management, family influence, economic and strategic coordinate and the company's social commitment.

The "THE WORLD MARKET LEADERS" volume features around 100 select German companies that have claimed world market leadership. The book aims to put an international spotlight on the medium-sized companies that have proven themselves as the "best of the best" in their market segment on the global market. The volume follows the "Lexikon der deutschen Weltmarktführer" (encyclopaedia of the German world market leaders), of which a new edition was published in 2015.

As in the German editions of the encyclopaedia, Blickle is also featured in these two volumes. As the third largest wheel and caster producer in the world, the company has developed from a small manufacturer of wheelbarrow wheels to a global player with over 750 employees across the world over the past 60 years.
