HAHN Group ranked as one of the most innovative companies in the world

Frankfurt, Germany – In the ranking of EconSight for the German Handelsblatt newspaper, the HAHN Group holds place 36 among the most innovative companies in Germany.

Every year, the Swiss EconSight GmbH examines companies in terms of their innovation power at the intersection of digitalization and applied technologies. Three factors are assessed for the analysis: The networking of digital and existing technologies, digitalization and the dynamics in its implementation. In the final ranking, the HAHN Group holds the 36th place among the most innovative German companies in 2019. Within the first 10 positions there are several longtime partners and customers of the HAHN Group. VW Group, Bosch and Siemens lead the German ranking of most innovative companies. In the global assessment for 2019, the HAHN Group is among the top 500 companies.

The company and product portfolio of the diversified HAHN Group serves the increasing demand for technologies in the fields of automation, robotics and solutions for Industry 4.0. With its 14 brands, the group is represented in numerous promising industries such as electronics, medical technology, medical devices, consumer goods and the automotive industry.

Each company within the HAHN Group is an industry expert with a high degree of innovation in its field. For example, HAHN Automation has been awarded the Innovation Prize of the State of Rhineland-Palatinate several times in the Digitalization/Industry 4.0 category. HAHN Digital continues the development of the innovative product portfolio EVE Suite to implement the digital transformation for smart factories. With the launch of WIPS 4.0, WEMO enables even more user-friendly dialog programming of robots. The company Walther Systemtechnik introduced the fully automatic degassing system for greases in 2019. The innovative strength of the HAHN Group remains at a high level for the coming year as well. In 2020, HAHN Automation will launch a completely new concept for automated assembly and testing processes.

Thomas Hähn, CEO of HAHN Group, comments on the outcome: “Position 36 in the EconSight ranking of the most innovative companies in Germany is a fantastic result for us. The outstanding achievements of our employees and the cooperation of our teams make this success possible.”

The HAHN Group review of K 2019

This year the HAHN Group participated at K 2019. The largest international plastics fair takes place every three years in Dusseldorf, Germany, and brings the most important companies of the plastics industry together.

This way manufacturers of plastics granules, injection-molding machines and packaging machines have their place on the fair. The HAHN Group was present at the fair with its subsidiaries GeKu, HAHN Digital, HAHN Robotics, HAHN RobShare, Rethink Robotics, Waldorf Technik, and Wemo.

The company and product portfolio of HAHN Group fits like a glove to one of the main topics of this year’s K fair: Digitalization and industry 4.0 were of enormous relevance, as well as products around the connectivity of devices, along with digital monitoring and the remote control of production systems and processes. The HAHN Group’s expertise covers exactly these topics:

  • Jointly Waldorf Technik and HAHN Digital presented a system that combines digital printing and digital service, leading to higher productivity in the production of medical devices.
  • With their new WIPS 4.0 software, Wemo contributes to a more user-friendly programming of robots and allows improved product quality through intelligent automation.

“Contrary to the general mood in the run-up to the fair, we had a successful trade show. This particularly applies to the individual firms Waldorf Technik and Wemo,” explains Bernhard Rupke, Director of the HAHN Group’s Material Handling division, which is made up of the companies GeKu, Wemo and Waldorf Technik. He continues: “But as a whole group with a very wide range of automation technology, we have received a lot of feedback from many customers and visitors.”

We are happy about the high number of visitors and the considerable interest, which was shown for our products and companies. In the coming weeks our teams will build on the numerous ideas, contacts and successes, which were made at K and are already looking forward to K 2022!
