This is the 28th time that particularly innovative medium-sized companies are honored with this award. Muhlen Sohn had previously proven his innovative strength in a scientific selection process. On behalf of compamedia, the organizer of the TOP 100 innovation competition, the innovation researcher Prof. Dr. Nikolaus Franke and his team evaluated the innovative strength of Muhlen Sohn.
The researchers used around 120 criteria from five categories as a basis for their decision: having a top management bringing forward innovations, innovation climate, innovative processes and organization, external orientation / open innovation and innovation success. At its core, it is about the question of whether innovations are the result of a systematic procedure or a coincidental product, i.e. the repeatability of innovation performances. And about whether and how the corresponding solutions are established in the market.
We wish you and your families Merry Christmas, peaceful holidays and a successful new year.

Our Trainee Marc in London
Our trainee Marc made a special business trip this year. He was allowed to take part in a program sponsored by the Chamber of Industry and Commerce and acquired the additional qualification “International Businessman (AHK)”.
During a three-week stay from May 20th to June 9th in the cosmopolitan city of London, he attended the European College of Business and Management. In a total of 120 teaching units, students dealt with the most important topics of foreign trade. This included the main topics “British Economy and Politics”, “Trade in England”, “Marketing and Advertising” and much more.
In addition to general lessons, there were excursions with a technical and cultural background to deepen what had been learned. As part of this program, Marc strengthened his intercultural skills, improved his language skills and expanded his knowledge of international economic areas.
Muhlen Sohn, as an international company, is happy to support its trainees with further training of this kind. We pride ourselves on training committed and cosmopolitan employees.
Over 100 pupils train for two mornings with the professionals from ratiopharm ulm. The extraordinary training event was organized by Top Partner Muhlen Sohn.
The Muhlen Sohn company, founded in 1880, stands for tradition and innovation. In keeping with this corporate philosophy, the top partner of BBU ‘01 organized a school event on March 12th and 13th, in which over 100 young people from the Blaustein School Association and the Blautopf School took part. In addition to professional trainers from BBU ‘01, the professionals Ismet Akpinar, Bogdan Radosavljevic, Per Günther and David Krämer also took on the role of trainer. “It was about conveying the basics and simply showing how basketball works,” explains Radosavljevic. “I would have wished that there would have been a similar event in my youth,” adds Akpinar, who incidentally revealed that as a teenager he had dreamed of “becoming a pediatrician”.
Under the guidance of the professionals, the students learned the basics of basketball and were able to score points in a quiz with their knowledge of ratiopharm ulm. After a short break for refreshments, the pupils then had the opportunity to get to know Per Günther & Co. personally. Before the Bundesliga basketball players left for training, a round of “bump-out” was played. The winner of the competition then received a signed jersey from ratiopharm ulm. The last unit of the day was a three-on-three tournament where the students could try out their skills.
We wish everyone Merry Christmas and a successful new year!

We look forward to a great cooperation!
Blaustein, October 21, 2016.
Muhlen Sohn Industries, a global leader in the corrugated industry announced their latest innovation Friday at the 2016 SuperCorrExpo in Orlando, FL. The newly developed SUPER WRAP LAG was presented before an expert industry audience and is expected to begin shipping in 2017.
Cutting-edge technology meets the highest standards
The adhesive-free application of the lagging allows installation time to be reduced significantly, resulting in installations up to ten times faster than traditional applications. Additionally, due to the self-tensioning properties of the material, very few fastening points are required. Therefore, the lagging cannot slip and can be exchanged easily without leaving any residue behind.
“We are delighted to be able to showcase our newly developed SUPER WRAP LAG to the expert audience at the 2016 SuperCorrExpo. With this innovative product, we offer our American and international customers, as usual, the highest German quality” says Armin Birzele, Sales Director at Muhlen Sohn.
The family owned company was founded in 1880, in Blaustein, Germany. Their various products are used in over 100 countries worldwide. Since 2006, the company is also represented in the US market and employs more than 30 employees at its facility in Anderson, Indiana. In the coming years, the company plans to continue the expansion of its market position within the USA.
Exhibitors present Industry Highlights
The 2016 SuperCorrExpo showcased more than 300 exhibitors to several thousand corrugated industry experts from over 70 countries. It is regarded as the meeting place for the corrugated board industry, from manufacturers to processors as well as manufacturers of machinery, equipment and supplies for the production and processing of corrugated board products. Two of the largest industry associations, TAPPI and AICC, organize the exhibition every four years.
Company successful at the exhibition TAPPI / Sales Meeting in Long Beach
At the exhibition TAPPI Corrugated Week in Long Beach, CA Muhlen Sohn may not be missing. From September 28th to October 1st 2014 the company presented the product range at the most important industry event in North America. All important corporates and manufacturers are represented. “The exhibition is a must as there are all main players in the place. We were able to maintain our network in California and also establish new contacts”, says Head of Sales Armin Birzele.
In advance of the exhibition, Birzele invited his North-American team to the Muhlen Sohn Sales Meeting in Long Beach; 15 participants, all responsible managers for North America and the German delegation came together to strive forward the expansion plans for the US market. The previous success of the recent years is extremely satisfying. “We have doubled our market share in North America in the recent five years”, says Birzele.
In 2006 the company founded the US subsidiary Muhlen Sohn Industries LP located in Anderson, IN. The outbreak of the financial crisis 2008 also affected the US company, but the executives of Muhlen Sohn decided to invest in the important location. In 2009 the company builds up the production in the USA with two weaving machines. Both machines have enough capacity to meet the demands of the market. Birzele emphasizes: “Our investments in the USA paid off. In the next five years we want to further expand our position.”
