BIETIGHEIM-BISSINGEN, Germany: Every year, German news channel n-tv honours medium-sized German enterprises with its Hidden Champion award. This year, dental medical company Dürr Dental beat its competitors in the Social Responsibility category for its outstanding commitment to national and international projects.

Dürr Dental was chosen for the award because the company has been engaged in charity for almost 15 years. On an international level, the company works with Mercy Ships, a health care charity that offers free medical treatment through its hospital ships in Africa. In addition to cash donations, Dürr Dental supplies the organisation with products for its dental clinics. Moreover, the company is involved as a sponsor of local sports clubs in Germany.

The awards were presented for the fourth time. Since 2011, n-tv has granted the Hidden Champion award to companies that are leaders in their respective market and run by their owners. The awards ceremony was held on 22 May during Frankfurt Global Business Week.

Founded in 1941, Dürr Dental today records an annual turnover of over €200 million and employs a workforce of 1,000 in around 40 countries. Its products are sold through specialists in over 100 countries.
