Kristall-Pegasus 2023 (Crystal Pegasus Award 2023) for entrepreneur couple ScheuchAlois Scheuch, the founder of the Scheuch company and his wife, Anna Elisabeth, have been awarded the Pegasus in Kristall (Crystal Pegasus Award) for their entrepreneurial life achievement.
This year, the Oberösterreichische Nachrichten (OÖN newspaper) once again honoured top companies based in Upper Austria with the “Pegasus” Award. The award ceremony took place on 1st June 2023 in the Brucknerhaus, Linz.
Scheuchs honoured for life achievement
Many outstanding companies received awards at the Pegasus Gala 2023. However, the highlight of the evening was the presentation of the Pegasus in Kristall in the category “Lifetime Achievement”. This year the prize deservedly went to Anna Elisabeth and Alois Scheuch.
“We have never sought rapid growth and short-term financial success. Our goal has always been to work sustainably for our customers, for our employees and for the future of the company,” said the Scheuch couple.
Scheuch is a family business in the best sense of the word, and is to celebrate its 60th anniversary this year. 60 years ago, Alois Scheuch founded a company consisting of six people which developed very quickly and is now considered one of the best in its industry worldwide. What started out as a small plumbing company run by Scheuch’s father has today become a global player with 1500 employees. Two factors have contributed significantly to its recipe for success: Alois Scheuch’s curiosity for all things technology, and the professional business skills of his wife, Anna Elisabeth.
With pioneering spirit to success
The Scheuchs have long since retired from the company. However, its success story continues unabated and the current forecast is more than positive: over 300 million euros in turnover in the 2022/23 business year and an order intake of almost 400 million euros have been predicted.
The couple’s son, Stefan Scheuch, who continues to run the family business today as CEO, states: “My father’s pioneering spirit was always unique, and I admire and appreciate that about him. Even today, in his old age, this still holds true. His talent; his passion for our products and technologies and his down-to-earth attitude have made Scheuch what it is today. He is still involved in technical projects from time to time, and is a welcome and highly valued personality in the company.
My father’s values represent the cornerstone for our economic success and the sustainable growth of our company. This makes us proud, and at the same time obligates all of us at Scheuch to lead the company into the future in the same spirit”.
