Already last Friday the Max Holder GmbH was honored as best SME 2016 by an expert team from “Manufacturing Excellence Awards”. The multifunctional tractor manufacturer, which are used by wine and fruit grower as well as the municipalities (road cleaning, winter services, etc.), was lead out of the crisis, after three insolvency proceedings, by a Staufen AG consultant team.

To achieve this, Shopfloor Management was introduced step by step in all departments. “It is a great recognition for the team if a successful project gets an acknowledged prize – not only for us, but also for our customer” says Wilhelm Goschy, COO at Staufen AG. “That our approach, to fulfill projects with a real cooperation between the customer and us, was distinguished makes us proud and motivates us to be consistent with our concept”.

During the last years the consulting company has received plenty of prizes and recognitions and achieves consistently a high place in the industry ranking. Mechanical Engineering Congress in Salach (near Stuttgart) on 30 November 2016  Conditions within the global economy are shifting their focus: mechanical engineering companies from Asia take over even greater shares of the market and buy into their western competitors. Cus-tomers are looking for specific solutions; the demand for standard machines are dropping. On the other hand, service and other additional offers, with respect to the actual product, are becoming even more important. Rapidly progressing digitalization offers many opportunities – but undeniably also risks. At the Mechanical Engineering congress, organized by the Staufen AG in cooperation with the EMAG group and the VDMA Baden-Wuerttemberg, entrepreneurs and senior management will report on their experiences and successes, but also on their lessons learned.  All information about the event can be found at:
