German term or phrase:Klassenerhalt schaffen
This term occurs in a logistics magazine article on a world ranking of forklift companies. This year several companies didn't make it to the top twenty in sales. They were "relegated" to the minor league. But some companies just barely made the list. They're still in the premier league. The terminology is, of course, borrowed from the European system of play-offs in soccer, e.g., where the bottom teams are relegated to the "zweite Liga". What are the teams called that were able to stay in the premier league? - Sie haben den Klassenerhalt geschafft.
