Since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic in early 2020, the cards have been reshuffled many times in numerous markets. The global impact of the pandemic severely tested many companies and their people, partnerships and supply chains in 2021 too. Lockdowns, material bottlenecks and regulatory requirements, as well as inflation spikes, produced unprecedented challenges - but also opportunities. Opportunities that were not even conceivable in the past for many were now brought within reach by changed conditions and circumstances. Companies that had already done their homework were able to overcome many unforeseen difficulties and, through flexibility, willingness to adapt and technical advantages, once again assert themselves ahead of others and emerge stronger from COVID-19.
The entrepreneurial side of corporate organisations speaks above all for their ability to withstand extraordinary market fluctuations while remaining economically stable. Notwithstanding the fact that the Thermik Group closed the 2021/2022 business year with a new turnover record, the CrefoZert that was awarded again (granted by Creditreform to only the first 1.7% of all German companies with the best credit rating) also highlights the unbroken course of success, even during the pandemic. Thermik was also once again able to maintain its place among the TOP 100 most innovative German companies thanks to its inventions and new developments. What's more, Thermik was listed by DDW (Die Deutsche Wirtschaft), in its ranking of the 10,000 most important of all German companies at the end of 2021, as one of the 10 biggest climbers (from rank 9,411 to rank 4,084, as at December 2021) and was awarded the seal of approval "Exzellenzunternehmen" (Company of Excellence).
