The Junior Chamber members in Freyung-Grafenau voted the Thomas-Krenn Serverversand their Company of the Year.
Thomas Krenn and Max Wittenzellner received the "Business Oscar" in recognition of their efforts in building an international business from humble beginnings.
It all started with a vision to provide customers an online shop that was unique in its simplicity and speed. In 2002, online stores were the exception – and those that did exist were not known for their friendly customer-service and functionality. The idea was to design a server shop that was easy for customers to navigate and use.
