Jowat SE has again been honored with the Best Managed Companies Award sponsored by Deloitte Private, the newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, and the Federation of German Industries (BDI). After its fourth consecutive win, Jowat SE has been recognized as a Gold Standard winner. For the family-owned enterprise, the Gold Standard validates its corporate strategy with a consistent focus on innovation, sustainability, and values. “We are delighted to have been honored with the Best Managed Company title in 2023 again,” said Ralf Nitschke, member of the Board of Directors, Jowat SE.

“By the year 2025, at least 80% of Jowat’s product innovations will meet our sustainability requirements—this is our goal. In that context, we will significantly increase the sales volume of our Green Adhesives, which today are already setting benchmarks in terms of occupational safety, resource conservation and consumer protection,” continued Nitschke.

From the point of view of Jowat’s Board of Directors, the successful combination of responsible sourcing practices and supply chains with more resource-saving production processes are the foundation of tomorrow’s sustainable products.

“Best managed companies such as Jowat are a strong and central pillar of our economy. They drive innovation while also pursuing a corporate governance geared to long-term success. These powerful businesses have earned the award because they think in generations, not in quarters,” said Markus Seiz, head of the Best Managed Company program and director at Deloitte Private.
