Today, Hereditary Prince Alois awarded the Order of Merit of the Principality of Liechtenstein to not one but four deserving citizens of the Ländle. The Commander's Cross of thr Order was given to Ekkehard and Jürgen Hilti of the convenience food producer Hilcona; Eugen Längle, who used to own Mixpac, Werfo and Mold, a developer and producer of two-component mixers and systems primarily for the dental and industrial markets; as well as Fritz Kaiser, co-founder and executive chairman of Kaiser Partner, a wealth management firm that provides family office and wealth management services to private wealth owners and their advisors.
And while the last one was the longest explanation, it's worth noting that Liechtensteiners don't only make their money in the financial sector. Shocking, I know. Fun fact: Did you know that Liechtenstein is the largest producer of false teeth in the world?
