Gunzenhausen/Germany, 31 July 2015. For the third time, Hetzner Online has been recognized as one of the 50 fastest-growing companies in Bavaria.
On 29 July, Ilse Aigner, the Bavarian Minister for Economic Affairs and Media, Energy and Technology honored those medium-sized enterprises with the distinction of "Bavaria's best 50" which had demonstrated especially strong growth and above average increases in their number of employees and their business volume in the last five years. An auditing firm was entrusted with making an independent and unbiased selection based on objective criteria.
Hetzner Online GmbH, which is located in Gunzenhausen, operates modern and high-performance data centers and has provided a wide range of Internet-related products and services since 1997.
Thousands of square meters of data center space are used to furnish web hosting packages and rented servers and to accommodate clients' own server equipment, in what is commonly called "colocation services". Hetzner Online's employees now attend to the needs of clients from 150 countries in three daily shifts. The especially strong demand from abroad has generated a substantial amount of growth in the last few years.
"We are delighted that our 'Made in Bavaria' services have been so well received from Australia to the US," said the Head of Marketing, Christian Fitz, at the award ceremony in Emperor's Hall of the Munich Residenz. Together he and Stephan Konvickova, Hetzner Online's CTO, accepted the award from Ilse Aigner.
