  • The Stevie Awards: 20+ years and counting
  • Recognising outstanding business achievements and contributions of organisations and individuals in more than 70 countries around the world
  • Krones among the big winners for 2023, with four trophies in all 

Krones is among the big winners of this year’s 9th annual German Stevie Awards. The company will receive four of the coveted trophies at the October award ceremony: two in Gold and one each in Silver and Bronze.

The judges’ comments

Krones will receive two Gold Stevie Awards, in the categories “Company of the year – manufacturing and production” and “Most innovative technology company of the year – over 2,500 employees”. 

Among the criteria earning Krones praise from the jury were the systematic, end-to-end digitalisation and the high level of automation offered for beverage-makers’ production operations. The jury also recognised the strong focus on customer needs and the holistic development of the company’s own internal structures, particularly the establishment of the group-wide community, as well as the product portfolio as a whole. The judges were likewise impressed by the family-owned and operated enterprise’s evolution and transformation into a pioneer in the machinery sector. 

The Silver Stevie in the category “Business technology solution – rising technology” and the Bronze Stevie for “Best new product or service – business-to-business products” represent double honours for Krones’ Shopfloor Guidance solution for increasing performance and reducing total cost of ownership. The jury praised the digital service offering as an innovative solution aimed at increasing efficiency and reducing downtimes and also emphasised the focus on user guidance and the option of context-based assistance and detailed instructions for standardised actions.
