This is the 8th time already that the company bema GmbH Maschinenfabrik from Voltlage is awarded the credit rating certificate “CrefoZert”. Thereby, the company again exhibits its outstanding credit rating, even in socially and economically difficult and hard times.
“During the months and years to come, we will experience unrest in our economic environment. Therefore, I am very happy that I can hand over this CrefoZert certificate to a consistently healthy and soundly managed company” says Armin Trojahn from Creditreform Osnabrück/Nordhorn Unger KG . This acknowledged certification creates confidence among our teams and business partners. With this award of CrefoZert, bema GmbH Maschinenfabrik is one of the top companies in Germany as less than 2% of all German companies are eligible for this award.
“Stay healthy, also economically, and make our best contribution in order to contain this pandemic”, this is how Sonja Koopmann, bema GmbH Maschinenfabrik managing director, sums up the current situation. “Only a good credit rating, sufficient liquid assets and with a healthy team will we be able to quickly and flexibly react on changes. We are constantly adapting our hygiene and protection measures to new circumstances in order to protect our teams and clients the best possible way. The evolution of this Corona pandemic is still difficult to assess. Since autumn 2020, demand for our extension solutions has been remaining on a constantly high level. For the time being, constantly rising raw materials prices, in particular steel and plastics, as well as long delivery times and shortage of several third-party items impede business.”
To be granted a CrefoZert, companies must undergo a multi-stage process. In a first step, credit rating of the company, its responsible managers and stakeholders is checked and verified during a management interview. Subsequently, Creditreform Rating AG, a BaFin (Federal Financial Supervisory Authority) certified subsidiary company of the Creditreform group, analyses the company’s annual accounts. Only where a company meets any and all these criteria will the credit rating certificate be issued.
