Dürr once again recognized as "Top Employer Automotive"

Bietigheim-Bissingen, October 18, 2012 - Dürr remains one of the top employers among the parts and equipment suppliers serving the German automotive industry. The mechanical and plant engineering firm came sixth out of the 22 finalists in the prestigious “Top Employer Automotive 2012/13” ranking. The Group thus confirmed the good result of the 2010/2011 ranking, when Dürr first took part in the competition’s “Automotive” category.

Dürr scored particularly well in the categories of remuneration system, innovation management, corporate culture and work-life balance. The MDAX-listed company achieved top marks in all four areas. In the remuneration system category, which covers, e.g., salary structure and transparency as well as pension benefits, Dürr attained the highest score of all 22 finalists. Dürr also performed very well in the other categories – career opportunities as well as training and development.

Ralf W. Dieter, CEO of Dürr AG: “This renewed recognition shows that our sustainable personnel policy is successful. As a technology company, we need highly qualified staff with an interest in innovation, entrepreneurship and customer orientation. In return, we must offer the right incentives, career prospects and scope for development. We can only defend and build on our leading market positions worldwide if we are also a top employer.”

The Dürr Group has approximately 3,300 employees at ten locations in Germany. Bietigheim-Bissingen and Darmstadt are the largest German locations with around 1,750 and 500 employees, respectively. As an engineering company, Dürr is particularly attractive to engineers in the fields of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, IT and process engineering, as well as to industrial engineers and business economists. The Group has a strong international focus and employs around 7,300 people in 23 countries around the world. In 2011, two thirds of Dürr’s incoming orders were generated in the emerging markets of the automotive industry, including China, India, Brazil and Mexico.
