World Market Leader 2018

aquatherm is one of the world‘s leading companies - officially. The manufacturer of polypropylene piping systems headquartered in Attendorn was once again listed in the world market leader index of the Henri B. Meier Entrepreneurial School of the University of St. Gallen and the Academy of German World Market Leaders (ADWM). Since 2016, the family business has been represented there.

There are up to 1500 world market leaders in Germany - but not every company deserves the title, states Prof. Dr. med. Christoph Müller from the HBM Entrepreneurship School, which is part of the University of St. Gallen. For this reason, he sets strict criteria that must be met in order to obtain a place in the world market leader index of the prestigious university. These include at least 50 percent ownership management in Germany, Austria or Switzerland, activities on at least three out of six continents with own production and / or sales companies, annual sales of at least 50 million euros, market leadership as No. 1 or No. 2 in the relevant world market segment, and an export share of at least 50 percent of sales.
aquatherm, which has branches in Germany, Italy, United Kingdom, USA and Canada, fully meets the criteria together with 450 other companies and can call itself "world market leader 2018“ in the field of polypropylene piping systems. "The listing in the world market leader index is a great honor for us," says Christof Rosenberg, who runs the family business together with his brothers Dirk and Maik. "It encourages us to continue to work hard and to expand our pioneering role."
