Winner in the “Medium-sized companies” category
Among all the entries for the Austrian Quality Award 2018, CARINI came out on top in the “Medium-sized companies” category and has been honoured for its outstanding achievements. The award ceremony took place at Studio 44 on Thursday evening following the Quality Austria Winners’ Conference. CARINI was able to impress the jury with its high quality standards in strategic planning and its day-to-day business practices. According to the jury, Etiketten CARINI is a family-run and highly commercially successful company with a strong sense of social responsibility, a strong focus on its employees, and a corporate culture that reflects this. “After spending four years preparing for this assessment, we’re obviously incredibly proud that we’ve been able to satisfy the requirements of this extraordinary award with aplomb at the very first attempt,” says Petra Thiel, Head of Quality Management at CARINI, with regard to CARINI being honoured as an Austrian Company of Excellence. For Konrad Scheiber, CEO of Quality Austria, a high level of business quality has a clear benefit: “An unwavering focus on quality clearly contributes towards the commercial success of a company and reinforces the bright future of the organisation.”

The quality of the business was assessed in accordance with the EFQM Excellence Model. From all the entries, an independent jury of economists, scientists and public administrators determined the finalists in each category. The category winners were then contenders for the Austrian Quality Award. This year, as the winner in the “Medium-sized companies” category, CARINI was honoured as a Company of Excellence.
