LAMILUX wins Axia Best Managed Companies Award 2021

LAMILUX, the specialist in daylight systems and fibre-reinforced plastics, beat off strong competition to win the Axia Best Managed Companies Award 2021, by impressing the top-class jury with its entrepreneurial excellence. This award honours LAMILUX as a pioneer in all key areas of corporate management, from the development of forward-looking strategies and innovative processes to corporate governance structures and a healthy corporate culture

LAMILUX, a fourth-generation family business, has grown sustainably over the years and generations to become one of the world market leaders in its sectors. As a medium-sized, continuously growing company, LAMILUX is a driving force of the German economy. The top-class jury of the Axia Best Managed is enthusiastic about the unique LAMILUX corporate culture and philosophy.

In a multi-stage application process, each company were put through its paces. The focus was on strengths, potential and challenges in the four areas of strategy, productivity and innovation, culture and commitment as well as governance and finance. LAMILUX convinced the representatives from business, science and media in all four core areas.

Additional requirements for the application were a minimum annual turnover of €150 million and headquarters in Germany. Furthermore, the companies had to be medium-sized or family-owned and show a successful economic development in the past years.

One of the most important guiding principles for LAMILUX is, “We are family”, as employees are the strength of a company and thus the central key to its aspiring success. This is why LAMILUX lives a culture of mutual appreciation, respect and trust as well as an “open door” policy.

“We attribute our success in the AXIA Best Managed Companies Award 2021 to our lived corporate culture and philosophy. This puts people at the centre of all considerations. This includes customers and suppliers as well as employees”, says Dr. Heinrich Strunz, Managing Partner of the LAMILUX Heinrich Strunz Group.

“The German SME sector is characterized by a globally unique diversity of sustainably grown family businesses and hidden champions. The LAMILUX Heinrich Strunz Group stands out once again as a Best Managed Company due to its outstanding corporate management and thus takes on a role model – a particularly important signal to the entire market in times of pandemic,” adds Markus Seiz, Best Managed Company Programme Manager and Director at Deloitte Private.

The Axia Best Managed Companies (BMC) programme is a competition and seal of quality for successful medium-sized companies run by Deloitte Private, WirtschaftsWoche, Credit Suisse and BDI in Germany. The vision: to build a national and global ecosystem of excellently managed medium-sized companies. A key unique selling point of BMC is its internationality: BMC was launched by Deloitte in Canada in the 1990s and has since been successfully introduced in more than 30 countries.

LAMILUX stood out among the competitors for its CI philosophy “Customized Intelligence – serving the customer as a programme”. For LAMILUX, this means top performance in all areas relevant to the customer, in particular as a leader in quality, innovation, service, competence and problem-solving. By striving for technologically innovative, user-oriented and customized solutions, LAMILUX aims to inspire all committed, creative and technophile people to develop tomorrow’s innovations.

The LAMILUX corporate culture is also increasingly becoming a distinguishing feature and a success factor for the family-owned company. It is the “spirit” of LAMILUX. Because the technology and knowledge of market participants are becoming more and more similar – all the more important is how a company acts, which values are lived in the company and how it masters challenges.
