Bavaria’s Best 50

The requirement is that the companies are owner-managed and have grown organically in terms of sales and employees between 2015 and 2019. eology was the only company to win the prize in Lower Franconia. A total of 8,000 companies from all counties and industries were invited to participate in the competition at the beginning of the year. Comparing the growth of the top 50 with all participants, the top 50 clearly came out on top: employee growth from 2015 to 2019 was 86%, while revenue growth was 105%. For the remaining participants, the figures were only 29% and 25%, respectively. Hubert Aiwanger, Bavarian Minister for Economic Affairs, Regional Development and Energy, commented: “Bavarian SMEs stand for innovative spirit, entrepreneurial creativity and future-proof business models. This is where stability, progress and competitiveness are at home.” The effects of the corona pandemic put the economy to a tough test, he said. “The flexibility, resilience and substance of our small and medium-sized enterprises are making a very significant contribution to overcoming the crisis as quickly as possible.”
