KRÜSS is one of the innovation leaders in 2018

TOP 100 competition success

04-Jul-2018

The TOP 100 awards for Germany's most innovative SMEs have been selected for the 25th time and, this year, KRÜSS GmbH is among the innovation leaders. The results were determined by an analysis performed by TOP 100's scientific director, Professor Nikolaus Franke. The Hamburg-based company will be honoured by the competition's mentor, Ranga Yogeshwar, together with Franke and compamedia, at the awards ceremony in Ludwigsburg on 29 June 2018 as part of the fifth German SME Summit. This is the third time that KRÜSS has joined this elite group. The company, which has 132 employees, particularly impressed the independent panel of judges in the 'Successful Innovations' category.

KRÜSS GmbH has been supplying high-precision measuring technology that is made in Germany for more than 220 years. The customer base of this family-owned business from Hamburg reads like a Who's Who of international industry leaders, with Apple, Siemens, Mercedes and Airbus among the prestigious companies that have placed their trust in its products and technologies. KRÜSS specialises in the measurement of surface and interfacial tension, and is indeed the global market leader in this area. "Our technologies are used wherever fluids come into contact with solid objects, for example in aircraft and automotive construction when bonding components," explained managing director Florian Weser.

KRÜSS sees its ability to innovate as one of the key factors behind its success. So it's no surprise that about a quarter of its 132 employees are engaged in research and development. Weser himself is also driving the innovation process forward, and has countersigned several international patent applications in recent times. The company has even entered a new business field with its latest innovation. The equipment control software that was developed in-house was so well received by customers that KRÜSS set up a spin-off company to market and further develop the program. Thanks to this inventiveness, the company is celebrating its third award in the TOP 100 competition for German SMEs.
