In the nomination round for the "Großer Preis des Mittelstandes 2022" (Grand Prix of Medium-Sized Businesses 2022), Wagner fulfilled all the evaluation criteria. The success: We reached the jury list at the "Network of the Best"! Although no one is allowed to apply themselves, the "Großer Preis des Mittelstandes" has been the most resonant business competition in Germany for years, according to its organiser, the Oskar Patzelt Foundation, founded in 1998.
For the 28th nationwide competition for the "Großer Preis des Mittelstandes 2022", 4,576 companies as well as business-friendly municipalities and SME-friendly banks were nominated. Only 542 of the nominees, including Wagner, reached the second stage of judging, the jury list. Now thirteen juries are deliberating which of the outstanding companies will receive the coveted award this year. Aspects such as the overall development of the company, the creation and safeguarding of jobs and apprenticeships, modernisation and innovation, commitment to the region, service and customer proximity will be judged. However, it is not only figures, innovations or jobs that are evaluated, but the company as a whole and in its complex role in society.
