Dr. Ralf Köster, CEO, BARTEC Group, is the recipient of the 2015 "Entrepreneur Of The Year" award, in the “industry” category, aimed at distinguishing leadership excellence in mid-sized German companies.

In awarding the price, the jury particularly recognized Köster's exemplary commitment and entrepreneurial vision, as well as his motivation to succeed as a team.

"I feel honored in receiving this distinction, which I would like to share with the whole company - our employees, management teams, and shareholders,” said Köster. “Our joint effort was a key driver of the BARTEC Group's dynamic growth, its emergence as a global player, and its positioning as one of the most innovative mid-sized German companies. A clear focus on customer requirements and solution providing, consistent internationalization, and efficient organizational structures, in light of increasingly complex market environments, were important preconditions for becoming a world market leader in explosion protection."
