Major industry award for Dr. Oswald Hager

Hager Group founder honoured for lifetime achievement Almost six decades ago Dr. Oswald Hager, his father Peter and brother Hermann founded a company that would later become one of the top players in the industry. Last week ZVEH, the most prominent German industry association, presented Dr. Hager, now 87, with an award in recognition of his lifetime achievement.

At a formal gala event on 31st October 2014 in Mainz, Germany, the Central Association of the German Electrical and Information Technology Trade (ZVEH) presented its E-Markenpreis award. The E-Marke (e-brand) community promotes quality, customer orientation and outstanding service in Germany’s electrical trade and is currently supported by around 7,000 electrical trade businesses and partner companies in industry, wholesale and the insurance sector. Each year the community presents its award in recognition of outstanding commitment to the electrical trade and in turn, the principles that characterise this industry.

‘This year’s award winner has established a connection to us as a brand trade partner that is so strong it seems set to last for centuries,’ commented Lothar Hellmann, ZVEH’s Vice-President, in his laudatory speech. ‘Hager advises and supports our guild member businesses in a manner that is truly unique.

’Without a doubt, Dr. Oswald Hager is one of the prominent entrepreneurs who have set standards in the European electrical installations market. In 1955 he joined forces with his father and brother to establish ‘Hager oHG, elektrotechnische Fabrik’ in Ensheim in the Saarland region. In the 1980s Hager Group gradually developed into a full-service provider for electrical installations in buildings. Today, the German business publication Wirtschaftsblatt ranks it 101st out of the 500 largest family-run businesses in the country. The company owes its size, but above all its significance, to the efforts of Dr. Hager in particular. Thank you, Oswald Hager!
