BMK is again one of the top companies in Bavaria. Hubert Aiwanger, Bavarian State Minister for Economic Affairs, Regional Development and Energy, presented the Bavaria's Best 50 award to Dr. Bärbel Götz and Andreas Schneider, Managing Directors of BMK, at Schleißheim Castle on July 26, 2022.
The Bavarian State Ministry of Economic Affairs, Regional Development and Energy will again honor the 50 fastest-growing medium-sized companies in 2022. In the last five years, these companies increased both their sales and number of employees above average.
The award-winning SMEs are successfully assuming corporate responsibility in view of demographic change and the increased challenges of a modern working world. The award is intended to give public recognition to this economic and social significance. Hubert Aiwanger emphasizes, "With performance, dedication and creativity, SMEs have contributed economic strength and overall prosperity to Bavaria.
Therefore, BMK is a part of the companies regarded as the backbone of the Bavarian economy.
After 2018, the Ministry awarded BMK for the second time.
Dr. Bärbel Götz is pleased, "As an owner-managed medium-sized company, BMK has assumed corporate responsibility since its foundation in 1994. Against the backdrop of the difficult market situation due to the Corona pandemic and the war in Europe creating disruptions in the supply chain, there is a need for a shift to more flexible and creative solutions. We are proud to be among the best in Bavaria."

IPC Mexico has been growing for the past few years, and it’s no wonder: Mexico has become a major hub in the world of PCB manufacturing, spurred in part by reshoring as companies pulled work back from China during the pandemic. As the country’s maquiladoras thrived, IPC began expanding the Mexican educational and training operations, and the group recently named Lorena Villanueva as director of IPC Mexico. Andy Shaughnessy and Barry Matties recently spoke with Lorena and IPC Vice President of Education David Hernandez about IPC Mexico’s growth, as well as the office’s plans to provide PCB manufacturers the training resources they need to succeed.

Customers, partners, and employees are increasingly moving toward companies that care about people and the environment and are no longer just about their economic profitability. Corporate social responsibility (CSR) has thus become essential, even in the manufacturing sector. CSR defines an organization's approach to sustainable development by considering the environmental, social, economic, and ethical issues of its activities.
