Lansinoh was the only company from Berlin that was awarded with the „Großer Preis des Mittelstandes“ for Berlin in the scope of the 22nd Oskar-Patzelt-Foundation competition for Berlin. The manufacturer of products for nursing period, baby care and toddler nutrition was able to enter the team of the price winners already in the second year of its nomination.

The coveted economic award from the Oskar-Patzelt-Foundation was given away on September 3 in the Hotel Maritim in Dresden. The jury of the foundation considered the big picture during the award ceremony. Next to figures, innovations or employment, it was focused on the complex role in society. The aim is to foster respect and esteem of managerial responsibility.

“I hold this special prize in my hands on behalf of my entire team. We were all feverishly awaiting the evening and the reward means a lot to us. It is an honor that the judges of the Oskar-Patzelt-Foundation have elected us as the prize winner from all the outstanding and extremely impressive companies. Since our foundation in 2004 we see our clear, social mission in the fostering of the nursing in Germany. Therefore, Lanish also shares this prize with the recognition therein with that highly-valued occupation group that has supported our company in that project already for more than one decade: the employed and freelance midwifes and style consultants. At this point, we cordially thank pregnant women and nursing mothers for their tireless care”, sums Heike Hinrich up her joy in words after the award ceremony.

The governing mayor of Berlin, Michael Müllers talks in acknowledgement about the performance of the medium-sized businesses and the Oskar-Patzelt-Foundation. He emphasizes that the enormous growth of the economy in Berlin as well as the enormous attraction for people from everywhere in the world is owed to the numerous small and medium-sized companies of the capital. However, major companies and corporations are still too often in the public eye. It is, therefore, thanks to the Oskar-Patzelt-Foundation that persistently points out the importance of the medium-sized businesses and gives the exemplary performance of medium-sized companies’ public acknowledgement and visibility.
