The Oskar Patzelt Foundation recently honored the Dautphetal-based family company Roth Industries with two awards. In September, the company received the Großer Preis des Mittelstandes. In addition, on October 19, the foundation surprised the management on with an honorary plaque recognizing four outstanding companies in Germany. The awards were presented as part of a gala event in Würzburg.
The Board of the Oskar Patzelt Foundation, Dr Helfried Schmidt and Petra Tröger, presented the Großer Preis des Mittelstandes award statuette. In their laudatory speech, they praised the overall performance of the Roth company and particularly underscored its support of employees, capacity for innovation, environmental management and social commitment. The jury was impressed by the Roth family company’s development from a handicraft business into a worldwide leader for floor heating and cooling systems, energy storage systems and composite technologies. For this reason, they also presented the Roth family company with the 2019 Honorary Plaque.
Several hundred entrepreneurs attended the award ceremony for the 25th “Großer Preis des Mittelstandes 2019” competition as well as the gala event where the special awards were presented. Across the country, a total of 5,399 (2018: 4,913) medium-sized companies, banks and communities were nominated for the 2019 competition. 758 of them made it to the “jury list”.
The Roth family of companies and Matthias Donges, CEO of Roth Industries, accepted the award. Matthias Donges stated: “We are delighted to win an award that is also known as the Oscars of the German mid-sized sector. This award is a recognition of all that we are doing in the building and industrial technology sectors. The motto of this year’s competition was ‘Sustainable business’.
