The annual TOP 50 serves as an important indicator for economic trends relating to German investments in the US and will be published broadly in the international trade press as well as in the German American Trade Magazine, the GACC’s quarterly publication.

Quotes from Annual Reports 2015

Daimler Group
Daimler Trucks reached a major milestone in 2015 with sales of more than 500,000 vehicles. In regional terms, the development of the truck business was very varied. The decrease in unit sales in the weak Latin American market was offset by an exceptionally strong performance in North America.

T-Mobile USA
For the full year 2015, T-Mobile added 8.3 million total net customers and outperformed the industry once again by delivering 11% growth in service revenue and 31% growth in Adjusted EBITDA. T-Mobile’s growth has been fueled by the performance of its nationwide 4G LTE network, which now covers 305 million Americans and continues to be the fastest in the nation.- John Legere, CEO T-Mobile USA

ZF Group
The year was marked by the largest acquisition in the company’s 100-year history, the purchase of U.S. automotive supplier TRW Automotive Holdings Corp. With ZF TRW now included in the calculation for the first time – for a period of just seven-and-a-half months since the acquisition on May 15, 2015 – we have achieved new dimensions in sales and results.
