Trends business magazine presents the prestigious Trends Gazelles Award every year. The Award recognises fast-growing companies, or ‘gazelles’, in a specific region. They announced on 8 March that Pauwels Sauzen had won the ‘large enterprises’ Trends Gazelles Award category for the region of Antwerp.
The Pauwels Sauzen company has a turnover of approx. 150 million euros and employs 300 people, 200 of which work in Oelegem. The Trends Gazelles Award is a prize for the fastest-growing company. Trends looks at companies’ track records over a period of five years. There are three parameters: growth in turnover, staff, and cash flow.
Charles Van Damme, Pauwels Sauzen Managing Director, is very pleased with the prize. He emphasised that the prize is the result of the efforts made by everyone at Pauwels Sauzen. Van Damme explained that the growth of the last five years is primarily due to a successful takeover and the continuous investment in innovations, such as flavours and packaging.
