Best possible rating according to Basel II

The word “rating” nowadays has the potential to raise one’s hackles – this is not the case for Thyracont Vacuum Instruments GmbH. Thyracont reached the highest category possible for an SME according to BASEL II, rated by its principal bank. A credit rating of “Very good“ – equivalent to “A+“ (Standard & Poor’s) and “A1“ (Moody’s) equals an increase of 3 levels, compared to the last rating in 2007 (“1A-“, DSGV Standards). All main categories were passed with a straight A, the best value possible (1.0).
