Hidden Champions – The Yamaichi-Podcast

--- For the time being the podcast file itself (mp3) is available only in German language. ---

There are 1,500 of them alone in Germany. Together they generate an annual turnover of 150 billion euro. And they are very important for the economy. There is talk of the so called hidden champions. Not only the world economy is centered around them, but also a new podcast “Hidden Champions - the Yamaichi Podcast”.

“Hidden Champions - the Yamaichi Podcast” tells success stories about companies and fascinating personalities. These companies and personalities are often undiscovered but they push the German economic miracle 2.0.

The first generation earns the money, the second manages the fortune, the third studies art history and the fourth degenerates completely. At least that's what the Prussian-German statesman Otto Fürst von Bismarck felt in the 19th century. And anyone looking at so many family businesses today sees some parallels to Bismarck's view. But there are also companies that do things differently. A particularly successful example is the Schweiger Group from the Bavarian Sauerlach. At SPS IPC Drives in Nuremberg, father and son talk about why failure in family businesses is fatal, where the secrets of success of the electronics industry are and what adoption has to do with it. You can hear this and more in the fourth episode of "Hidden Champions - The Yamaichi Podcast".".

Why no smartphone can do without the technology of Lauterbach and why the world market leader from the terraced house is a real hidden champion? Find out now – in the second episode of our podcast.
