Bilstein, distributed in Ireland by Serfac Limited, is once again a member of the exclusive “Brands of the Century” circle. Associated with the Brand Prize of Deutsche Standards, a range of brands representing different industries have been included in the 2012 anniversary edition issued by the publisher and publicist Dr. Florian Langenscheidt. Bilstein received the coveted prize on 22 November in Berlin.
This was the second time that Bilstein has received this award. In 2010, the manufacturer of high quality suspension components represented the industry in the 2010 edition of “Brands of the Century”.
A high-calibre advisory committee consisting of brand experts from the fields of media, industry and the creative sector selects the brands and Bilstein regards its nomination as a clear vote of confidence in the high quality of its suspension technology products.
Deutsche Standards Editionen was founded in 2002 and in 2003 work began on creating the “Brands of the Century” volume which was presented at the Frankfurt Book Fair, signalling the start of the Deutsche Standards success story. The publication continues to present the great German brands – economic icons and legends of consumer history.
The book provides a detailed overview of the history and development of selected German products and presents a highly informative survey of the history of the “Made in Germany” seal of quality.
