  • Bavarian Founder's Prize 2011
  • Bavarian Energy Award 2014
  • Bavaria’s Best 50

    Success is not a matter of chance

    The family-owned company Irlbacher has already been awarded this prize three times, an award presented by the Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs to the 50 fastest-growing medium-sized companies.

    Having won the award in 2007, we were again able to convince the jury in 2008 and 2014 with sustained growth in both employee numbers and sales.

  • Economy Future Award

    Cooperation with regional universities

    The Irlbacher group was also among the winners in 2010 and twice in 2014: firstly, for the “Zero-Emissions Factory” cooperation project with the Amberg-Weiden University of Applied Sciences, and secondly as a founding member of the Karrierenetzwerks Ostbayern (Eastern Bavaria Career Network).

    The prize is a bronze sculpture designed by the sculptor Paul Schinner, who lives in Nabburg, 20 minutes down the road from our premises.

  • Bavarian Founder’s Prize 2011

    The Ascender

    Irlbacher receives the award in the category of up-and-coming enterprises with the following statement: “The family-owned company impresses with solid growth, sustainable advancement and early regulation of succession. In 2002, the company was restructured with the founding of Irlbacher Blickpunkt Glas GmbH and other business units. A continuous, sustainable expansion began. On a production area of over 20,000 square meters, 2,500 tons of raw glass are processed annually into innovative and high-quality glass products” (status 2011).

    The Bavarian Founder’s Prize is a joint initiative of the Bayerische Sparkassen (Bavarian savings banks), the magazine Stern, ZDF (public-service broadcasting in Germany) and the Porsche Foundation.

    …and lots of other prizes…

    Because for us, sustainability is not just an empty phrase, but a practiced reality. Because environmental protection not only reduces our costs. Because as a down-to-earth family business we have an obligation to our children.
