The F.A.Z. INSTITUTE has published a study in Germany which confirms that Hänel Office and Industrial Storage Systems is again among the country’s innovation leaders in 2021 – a distinction earned for the third time. The study ‘Deutschlands Innovationsführer’ was published by Prognos on behalf of the F.A.Z. INSTITUTE in cooperation with the IMWF Institute for Management and Economy Research.
The selection process is based on data in the EPO Worldwide Patent Statistical Database (PATSTAT) of the European Patent Office. Evaluating the innovativeness and leadership of enterprises in Germany is based on two proven and widely accepted metrics:
- Leadership – how much impact does an invention have on other inventions?
- Newness / innovativeness of the invention – to what degree can an invention clearly stand out and uniquely distinguish itself from previous inventions?
Both of these qualities are clearly exhibited by German innovation leaders.
The study focused on activities in all patent families worldwide over the past ten years. Innovation leadership and the research conducted by patent applicants in Germany, representing more than 500 areas of technological and scientific expertise, were evaluated according to a defined set of metrics.
Hänel Office and Industrial Storage Systems, as one of the leading providers of intralogistic solutions worldwide, has made major contributions to the development of automated storage and materials handling through its many inventions and patents.
The study confirms that Hänel Office and Industrial Storage Systems is ranked among the leading innovators in Germany!
