Ottobock - Chosen As „Hidden Champion 2012“!
Award winner of this year’s award for medium sized businesses of the news channel n-tv is the Otto Bock Health Care GmbH. The family business was able to win against about 100 other competitors. In addition to the title „Hidden Champion 2012“, also the award in the category „Brand“ was given to the manufacturer of high-quality prostheses, orthotic devices and other tools for people with reduced mobility.
On the occasion of the Global Business Week in Frankfurt at the end of May, Ottobock’s managing partner Professor Hans Georg Näder could accept the award.
This year, the n-tv award for medium sized businesses was awarded for the second time in cooperation with the Malecki Group and UBS Germany. All owner-managed businesses based in Germany that have at least 50 employees and that are characterized by an above average successful economy, but do „bloom more in the hidden“, can apply.
All these criteria are true for the Otto Bock GmbH. The medical technology business from Duderstadt is the world market leader in the field of prosthetics and attaches great importance to social commitment, environmental awareness and humaneness – despite its extraordinary economic success. The business presents itself rather reserved in public. With its innovative products, designed for individual solutions, Ottobock helps a lot of affected persons to gain more mobility and independency and thus contributes considerably to a worth-living future for these people. Ottobock assumes social responsibility, among other things by its commitment at the Paralympics.
We are happy for our longstanding customer and congratulate on this award!
