Scansonic and GEFERTEC among the 150 most innovative companies in Eastern Germany

Scansonic MI GmbH and GEFERTEC GmbH are among the most innovative companies in Eastern Germany. This is what the business magazine WIRTSCHAFT + MARKT states in its January edition. For this edition, a total of 150 companies have been selected, coming from a wide range of different fields, such as mechanical engineering, mobility, IT and digital economy, energy and environmental engineering, health care, chemical and plastics industry as well as food and agricultural industry.

Scansonic offers systems and solutions for laser welding, laser soldering and laser hardening as well as precise sensor systems for quality monitoring applications. Scansonic MI is the world market leader in the field of laser-based joining systems for car body construction applications.

GEFERTEC has developed an innovative additive manufacturing method, the 3DMP® process. Unlike standard 3D metal printing methods, 3DMP® uses wire instead of powder as the starting material. This results in easier handling, lower material costs and quicker manufacturing.

The honour of being part of the most innovative companies is not a coincidence for Scansonic and GEFERTEC: the companies of the Berlin.Industrial.Group. invest approximately 16% of their turnover into the R&D sector to continuously ensure that creative ideas can be converted into high-performance products.

The panel that nominated and selected the innovation leaders was prominently staffed: Apart from the producers of the magazine, the ministries of economy of the five new Länder and of Berlin as well as the development associations and investment banks of the Länder also actively participated in the selection.
