MicroNova named one of “Bavaria's Best 50”

Award for surpassing company growth


Software and systems vendor MicroNova, with its headquarters in Vierkirchen near Munich, has been named one of Bavaria’s 50 Best Companies 2022 by the Bavarian State Ministry of Economic Affairs, Regional Development, and Energy. Hubert Aiwanger, Bavarian Minister of Economic Affairs, presented the award to CEO Orazio Ragonesi, and the founder, Josef W. Karl, on July 26 at Schleißheim Palace.

The award is given to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) that have achieved particularly strong growth in recent years. Companies are chosen on the basis of increases in the number of employees and in revenue. Growth must be organic and not come predominantly from acquisitions. MicroNova met these targets for the financial years 2017 to 2022 (2022 per forecast). For example, the number of employees alone has increased from 207 in 2017 to 275 in 2021; currently the MicroNova Group employs around 340 people. The company’s head office is in Jetzendorf in the district of Pfaffenhofen.

“In light of the impact of the automotive crisis and the Covid-19 pandemic that immediately followed, we are particularly proud of our stable market position in the year that marks our company’s 35th anniversary,” said Orazio Ragonesi. “That positioning is an important foundation for our growth, which is supported by key building blocks such as ongoing process optimizations in production as well as in product development and product management. The long-term strategic development of our portfolio is also essential. Ultimately, however, it is always the brilliant minds working for us at our nine locations that make all this possible.”

Success with partners

During the period considered, MicroNova was able to increase its order intake year on year, even under some challenging conditions, and win significant orders from strategically relevant customers as well as from new clients. Furthermore, existing technology and product partnerships made an important contribution to the success of recent years.

That is why, looking to the future, further growth in staff and turnover is planned. Particular challenges at the moment include the chip shortage and energy crisis, as well as the scarcity of skilled workers. “If we can overcome these challenges, I can see us as a candidate for Bavaria’s Best 50 in the future, too,” said MicroNova founder and Supervisory Board chairman Josef W. Karl, who was also present at the award ceremony. “And the award is a lovely present for the company’s 35th anniversary.”
