Beumer Group has won the Axia Best Managed Companies Award 2021: at the beginning of May the consulting company Deloitte honoured the systems provider for its successful and well-managed medium-sized company.
As the founder of the Axia Award, Deloitte, together with the German business magazine WirtschaftsWoche and the Federation of German Industries (BDI), is again awarding this prestigious prize this year. Beumer is taking part for the fourth time.
“From the very beginning, our company has stood for values such as integrity and ethics, customer focus, quality and innovation, teamwork and sustainability,” says Dr Chirstoph Beumer, CEO and Chairman of the Management Board of the Beumer Group. The group of companies lives these and has also set them down in writing in guiding principles.
“The way a company behaves towards its employees and customers shows the importance it attaches to its values and how consciously it deals with them,” Beumer describes.
The systems provider thus sees its employees as part of the Beumer family, not as a resource. Employees should develop and not be consumed. That is why the company calls its HR department People and Culture (P&C). “The designation ‘People and Culture’ expresses the value principle by which we act according to our leadership culture in the family business,” says Beumer. “And it supports the Beumer employer brand, because corporate culture attracts talent.”
The Beumer Group offers exciting prospects and a varied working environment for its employees in the Münsterland mechanical engineering region. The system provider has been able to record large increases in recent years – and has gained a very good international reputation with forward-looking solutions for intralogistics in conveying and loading technology, palletising and packaging technology as well as sorting and distribution systems.
At the moment, for example, the aim is to push ahead with digitalisation to the fullest extent. To this end, the Beumer Group has launched two spin-offs in addition to the existing innovation department. Beam GmbH, a self-sufficient company builder, was established in Berlin. “We try to solve unique problems in logistics together with teams of founders,” says Dr Beumer. “We want to find founders with business ideas that are relevant to us. To do this, we found three start-ups per year and transfer them into their own company under the Beam umbrella.” The aim is to open up new business fields in logistics.
