Bilfinger once again has been ranked “Number 1” among the major industrial services providers in Germany. Its top listing in the survey-based ranking compiled annually by the market research firm Lünendonk & Hossenfelder GmbH marks the eleventh time in a row that the Mannheim-based company takes first place among the top industrial services providers. At more than a billion euros, Bilfinger’s domestic revenue for 2018 was significantly ahead of the runner up. When it came to total revenue earned, Bilfinger’s performance was actually four times that of its closest rival among the top three.
“I’m pleased that we have been the front runner since 2009. This success belongs to our employees who enhance the efficiency of customer’s assets, ensure a high level of availability and reduce maintenance costs. The award encourages us to further expand our market position.”

In its poll, Lünendonk asked respondents to name the four most important players on the German industrial services market. That Bilfinger is dominating the competitive benchmark is shown by the fact that 88% of those surveyed named the company. The industrial services provider enhances the efficiency of assets, ensures a high level of availability and reduces maintenance costs.
With its innovative, groundbreaking and intelligent products and maintenance strategies, the company is able to boost the efficiency of industrial plants and facilities while concomitantly reducing their ecological footprint. One example is Bilfinger’s “scrubber” solution, a sort of catalytic converter for the maritime shipping industry. Scrubbers reduce the sulfur-dioxide content of the waste gas produced when heavy oil is burned by nearly 100 percent. Bilfinger successfully has established itself on the market with this technology, securing an order volume of more than 100 million euros.
