Batterien-Montage-Zentrum again one of "BAVARIA'S BEST 50"

(PresseBox) (Karlstein, ) For the second successive time, BMZ Batterien-Montage-Zentrum (located in Karlstein, Lower Frankonia, Bavaria, Germany) is recipient of the "BAVARIA'S BEST 50" award, initiated by the Bavarian Ministry for Economic Affairs, Infrastructure, Transport and Technology, for being one of the fastest-growing companies in Bavaria. The prize winners were selected from 256 candidates by an independent jury from Ernst & Young AG Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft Steuerberatungsgesellschaft. The award's ceremony was held on July 2, 2008 by Mrs. Emilia Müller, Bavarian State Minister for Economic Affairs, Infrastructure, Transport and Technology, in the Royal Residence (Residenz) in Munich, Germany.

This is the seventh time that "BAVARIA'S BEST 50" awards honor Bavarian companies, which in the past five years have shown the strongest sales growth and increase in the number of employees. These comparison figures are particularly impressive by BMZ Batterien-Montage-Zentrum. From 2003 to 2007, annual sales grew by a factor of 4 to more than 50 million Euros and the number of permanent employees grew from nearly 100 to more than 350.

BMZ, a system provider and specialist for intelligent battery solutions, also expects strong growth in the forthcoming years. According to Sven Bauer, Managing Director of BMZ, it is planned to exceed 100 million Euros sales revenue within the next two to three years. "New types of innovative battery cells - with high energy density, extremely low self-discharge, non-sensitivity to low temperatures, durability and high current-stability - open up completely new fields of application. Whether it is, hammer drills, boat propellers, portable vacuum cleaners, battery powered bicycles, mobile lighting fixtures, hybrid drives for vehicles - the demand for intelligent, professional battery solutions has increased sharply over the past years and will definitely continue to increase further. We expect that BMZ, as leading European manufacturer of customized battery solutions, will greatly benefit in the coming years from this strong market growth."

BMZ was founded in 1994 by Sven Bauer, Thorsten Gotthardt and Claudia Reimer and today still remains an owner-managed company. Since two years, BMZ also maintains a manufacturing site in Shenzhen, China. However, manufacturing outsourcing on a larger scale is currently not planned. "The name BMZ stands for innovation, quality and reliability. In addition to the necessary infrastructure, most importantly this requires highly motivated and skilled employees. Almost 15 years of past experience repeatedly confirm that Bavaria, even despite its significantly higher personnel costs compared to Asia or Eastern Europe, is absolutely competitive when taking all relevant parameters into consideration. Therefore, as long as we can find enough space and suitable employees we will continue to expand our activities in Karlstein (Lower Frankonia, Bavaria, Germany)."
