As of 19 June, BKL Baukran Logistik GmbH is officially a Top 100 SME in Germany. BKL came out on top throughout the scientific selection process, especially in the category "Innovative Processes/Organization". In fact, we made the Top 10 in this category, despite competition being particularly intense this year, according to the event organizer.

Innovation is the DNA and the driving force behind BKL.

"We are proud to officially be one of the most future-oriented SMEs in Germany today. After all, innovation is the DNA and the driving force behind BKL," explains Jörg Hegestweiler, CEO of BKL Baukran Logistik GmbH, after receiving the award.
The award ceremony had to be canceled this year. Therefore, science journalist Ranga Yogeshwar congratulated BKL in a video message. Prof. Dr. Nikolaus Franke, the scientific director of Top 100, also emphasized in the video why BKL was awarded.

BKL fine-tunes its innovations on an ongoing basis.

Since the company's foundation in 1969, Jürgen Volz and later Alexander Volz have introduced numerous pioneering steps, making BKL one of the largest full-service providers of crane solutions in Europe and leaving an indelible mark on the industry. The family-owned company started to actively focus on digitization some time ago.
Jörg Hegestweiler Points out: "Our aspiration is to lead the field. This is fundamental to all that we have done for over 50 years – and continue to do today – when it comes to crane technology and service, but it is also about how we do it. We are working tirelessly to advance further groundbreaking developments."
