Hilscher ranks among the TOP 100 for the second time

Hattersheim, 12. Feb. 2024 – Newly crowned winner of the innovation award: Hilscher Gesellschaft für Systemautomation mbH from Hattersheim am Main has been awarded the TOP 100 title for 2024. This award is only given out to highly innovative medium-sized companies that stand out among their peers. Science journalist Ranga Yogeshwar will be in Weimar on June 28 to personally congratulate Hilscher on their success at the award ceremony. Ranga Yogeshwar has been part of the TOP 100 as a mentor for twelve years.

On behalf of compamedia, the organizer of the competition, innovation researcher Prof. Dr. Nikolaus Franke from the Vienna University of Economics and Business and his team examined the innovative performance of all participants on the basis of more than 100 criteria from five categories: innovation-friendliness of senior management, climate of innovation, innovative processes and organization, outward looking/open innovation, and successful innovations. “Are companies able to create new products, services, processes and business models? And are these innovations just coincidences? Or the result of a structured and targeted approach? These are the questions we explore at TOP 100,” says Nikolaus Franke, as he explains his approach to the evaluation process. How well the innovations and product improvements were received on the market is also taken into consideration (further information on the criteria considered can be found at https://www.top100-germany.com/test-criteria/).

Hilscher emerged victorious in the scientific selection process and for the second time is one of the top innovators. As the market leader in industrial communication, the Hattersheim-based company near Frankfurt am Main is a front runner in many key areas of automation technology.
