The new edition of the “Lexikon der deutschen Weltmarktführer” (Lexicon of German World Market Leaders) was presented at the annual “Summit meeting of World Market Leaders”, which was held from January 27 to 29.

The editors of the Lexicon, Dr. Florian Langenscheidt and Prof. Dr. Bernd Venohr, selected those companies which are ranked in the top 3 companies in their industry worldwide. Blomberg-based Phoenix Contact is the only manufacturer of electrical connection technology, electronic interface technology, and automation to be listed.

“The success of German World Market Leaders comes from more than a keen sense for market opportunities and an excellent capacity for innovation,” stated Dr. Frank-Walter Steinmeier, German Minister for Foreign Affairs, in his opening address. “Reason, responsibility, and a long-term outlook – these are the values that define the actions of these companies and account for their high regard.” Summing up his address, Steinmeier continued: “Their worldwide success proves that this stance is sustainable in the globalized world and products “Made in Germany” are especially attractive.” Born in Lippe, Steinmeier grew up just a few kilometers away from Blomberg and has personal ties to Phoenix Contact.

The editors partnered with the three largest industrial associations in the German economy, VDA, ZVEI, and VDMA, which represent the automotive, electrical engineering and electronics, and machine building and systems manufacturing industries, and also the magazine “Wirtschaftswoche”. The Lexicon is published by Deutsche Standards Editionen and is priced at 98 euros. The ISBN is 978-3-86936-656-2.
