KristallTurm® is the Number One “Top Start-Up in Craftsmanship 2014”

Each year, countless business ideas emerge, but only a few of them are creative and, at the same time, economically successful enterprises. On 26th September, three of these extraordinary and profitable ideas were awarded „Top Start-Up in Craftsmanship“ in Dortmund´s Signal Iduna Park football stadium, where the Young Craftsman Association gathered for a congress. The winners successfully competed against 70 applicants from all over Germany. The jury did not only consider innovative ideas, but also attached importance to a solid economical concept.

Heinz Tretter, founder and Managing Director of KristallTurm®, was awarded the first prize for his innovative concept of high rope courses. The hexagonal installations, which have been inspired by snowflakes, are not only space saving, but also, thanks to their impressive capacity, very profitable for their operators. Imaginative, themed climbing elements and the absolutely safe climbing system provide a unique climbing experience for guests. For this innovative and highly successful concept, the entrepreneur received a 10,000 EUR prize. „This award makes up proud and motivates the entire team“, says the master carpenter from Lenggries, who founded his business in 2009 after a career as skiing coach for the German Skiing Association.

Together with KristallTurm®, a painter/decorator and a baker were also honoured with the „Top Start-Up in Craftsmanship“ prize. With their achievements, all award winners clearly demonstrate one fact: Even in 2014, craftsmanship has solid foundations! „Our winners are real examples for our young craftsmen“, says Olaf Deininger, Chief Editor of handwerk magazin (craft magazine). „They produce innovative ideas and have confidence, are trend-setters and discover new markets. Their enterprises are living proof that founding a business in the crafts trade is future-proof.“

For KristallTurm®, this award does not only mean that past achievements have been honoured, but also presents a confirmation of its strategy to build on the quality and creativity of German craftsmanship and, with its projects, carry its good reputation into the world.
