IGZ customers were awarded prizes for jointly successfully implemented SAP projects. For example, the GERMAN AWARD FOR SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT for GEBERIT AG.
The company IGZ was awarded 3 times as one of BAVARIA'S BEST 50 companies, in 2008, 2009 and 2014.
The IGZ founders also received the STATE MEDAL in 2016 for special services to the Bavarian economy.
IGZ projects have been honored several times by SAP SE with appreciative awards.
The desired SAP QUALITY AWARD was awarded to GEBR. HEINEMANN and IGZ for the successful SAP EWM / MFS implementation at the Erlensee logistics center. Essential criteria for this include, among other things, economic efficiency as well as "radiance" of the innovations in demanding SAP projects.

SAP EWM Quality Award in GOLD for IGZ
In 2014, IGZ and its long-standing customer Gebr. Heinemann SE & Co. KG were honoured by SAP Deutschland GmbH with the SAP Quality Award in Gold for the successful introduction of SAP EWM/MFS at the Erlensee location.
This award recognises successful SAP implementations that are characterised by high-quality project planning and a focus on fast and cost-effective implementation in close proximity to the SAP standard. These projects are evaluated using ten quality principles recommended by SAP. The aim is to deliver project results that create added commercial value and meet the demand for short lead times.
IGZ founders Johann Zrenner and Wolfgang Gropengießer awarded the state medal for special services to the Bavarian economy
Both owners of IGZ and the engineers Johann Zrenner and Wolfgang Gropengießer from Falkenberg/Opf. were awarded the state medal for special services to the Bavarian economy on Monday 28 November 2016. The Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs and Media, Energy and Technology annually honours around 20 individuals who have rendered special services to the Bavarian economy. At a celebratory state ceremony in the Ludwig Erhard Ceremonial Hall at the Bavarian Ministry for Economic Affairs in Munich, the Bavarian Minister for Economic Affairs and Media, Energy and Technology, Ilse Aigner, honoured 15 business personalities from all over Bavaria with the highest personal award that the Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs can present for their initiative and exemplary corporate conduct.
In her laudatory speech, the Bavarian Minister for Economic Affairs highlighted the extraordinary services of both awardees towards promoting growth, employment and well-being in Bavaria, and in particular in the region of northern Oberpfalz. The outstanding achievements of the two engineers Gropengießer and Zrenner began, she said, when they moved their two-man company IGZ Ingenieurgesellschaft out of their parents' barn and expanded it into one of the leading SAP engineering services providers for logistics and production in the German-speaking world, with a current total of over 300 employees. Furthermore, Aigner acknowledged the commitment of both founders for their special contribution to the positive development of the region of North Oberpfalz and their voluntary as well as social commitment.
Johann Zrenner and Wolfgang Gropengießer dedicated the award to all of the employees in the IGZ company group: "We're very pleased that the Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs has honoured our commitment over the past 17 years in this way. Also in our region, it's important to keep highlighting the contribution made by medium-sized family companies to employment and well-being", says Gropengießer.
"This doesn't just honour us as individuals, but in a special way it's also an appreciation of the successful work of all of our employees at IGZ, whose commitment and performance we have to thank for the fact that our family business has a leading position in the German-speaking world," added Zrenner.
