According to a study by the “brand eins” business magazine, Staufen AG is one of the best consultancies in Germany in the industries and areas that it deals with. For example, Staufen AG with its base in Köngen near Stuttgart was ranked second in the “Mechanical and Plant Engineering” sector. In operations management, Staufen AG was also ranked among the top two. In a recent market analysis, publisher brand eins Wissen and the Hamburg company Statista interviewed around 1500 experts from consultancies and more than 1300 customers about their experiences in the consultancy industry. Only 276 of a total of more than 15,000 consultancies in Germany made it to the respective top lists in the survey. Staufen AG comes off well in this survey in a number of ways. In the “Automotive and Automotive Supply” category as well as in “Other Industrial Goods”, the consulting house is thus amongst the top five in Germany. The same applies to “Restructuring” and “Supply Chain Management”. “It makes me very proud that we have built up such a good reputation as a hidden champion with only 200 employees”, Wilhelm Goschy, Member of the Staufen AG Executive Board explains. “The result confirms us in our strategy of making companies fit for the future in their development from turnaround to top performance, using a comprehensive consultancy approach.” Staufen AG’s development has been marked by numerous awards. The “Lünendonk-Trendstudie 2013 – Performance“ thus ranked the company amongst German consultancies with the fastest growth rates. In addition, there were the “Best of Consulting“ award from the “Wirtschaftswoche” weekly business magazine and the “Great Place to Work“ award by the Handelsblatt newspaper.
