Part of the BestMasters book series (BEST)


The study in hand is based on the ranking of the 100 largest (industrial) companies by total sales in 1971 by Max Kruk published in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ) on 9th September 1972. This ranking is created annually since 1959 until today. Consequently, it represents one of the oldest and most comprehensive collections of the largest companies in Germany and is therefore a suitable as well as reliable source for this study.
