Doppstadt joins illustrious roster of „World Market Leaders“

The term „Hidden Champions“ refers to midsize companies that are tremendously successful in their respective areas but usually operate below the radar of public attention.

Doppstadt falls under this category, too – and has now entered the „Weltmarktführerindex“ („World Market Leader Index“), a yearly ranking drawn up by HBM Unternehmerschule, an acclaimed business school at St. Gallen University offering MBA programs for executives. The survey, conducted in cooperation with German business magazine WirtschaftsWoche, takes a closer look at those „Hidden Champions“.

To enter the prestigious list, a couple of strict criteria are to be met. Candidates must have the largest or second-largest market share in their respective segment, generate annual revenues of at least 50 Mio. EUR and operate on three or more continents.

According to the authors, evaluation criteria for this year’s survey have been tightened, so that the number of entries finally included in the list has shot down by two-thirds to 461.

We at Doppstadt are proud to be part of this exclusive group – and use the award as an incentive and further motivation to continue on our successful course.
