Last Friday evening, 26 October 2018, George Kuratle and his children Corinne, Roger and Fabian Kuratle, KURATLE GROUP AG, received the first prize in the "Family Business" category at the EY Enterpreneur Of The Year 2018 business award ceremony.
More than 100 guests from business, politics and culture celebrated together with the finalists and the prizewinners at the award ceremony in the TRAFO in Baden. The EY distinguishes people who achieve great performance with pioneering spirit, courage, diligence and passion. It promotes companies worldwide and brings people together who thus become part of a successful network and thus move and advance the world. A total of more than 10,000 entrepreneurs each apply internationally for the coveted and globally recognized title EY Entrepreneur Of The Year™. Within the framework of this competition, prize winners worthy of the prize are celebrated every year in about 150 countries.
We are incredibly proud and happy to receive this great recognition. The KURATLE GROUP AG has changed from a regional timber trading company founded in 1955 to an internationally active full-range supplier in the wood processing industry. This award is the best proof that the entire company and its companies are on the right track and are decisively supporting future development and other projects.
On behalf of George Kuratle, we would like to thank all employees, friends, business partners, the Board of Directors as well as Corinne, Roger and Fabian Kuratle, who made all this possible through their energetic commitment and support. We look forward to continuing to count on this great team in the future.
