“Germany’s most innovative companies”: Maximum patent potential for the Würth Elektronik Group

Waldenburg (Germany), May 2, 2024 – In the innovation ranking from Capital, the acclaimed German business magazine, Würth Elektronik once again landed a prestigious four-star ranking in the Electronics & Electrical Engineering, Automation and Measurement Technology category. Especially gratifying, the renowned manufacturer of electronic and electromechanical components, printed circuit boards, and intelligent power and control systems, also picked up a top rating in the important sector of ‘patent relevance’.

Capital has selected the company as "Germany’s Most Innovative Companies” for the fifth time now. The ranking encompasses 20 sectors and industries, from the automotive industry and the chemical sector, to energy and the environment.

In the survey, 3,566 innovation experts had the chance to select the leading companies in their industries from a total of 1,902 candidates. Würth Elektronik was among 465 innovative organizations to again be considered this year, being awarded four stars.

High patent relevance

Just like last year, Würth Elektronik again earned the highest score for patent relevance in 2024 with two points. This is based on Technology Relevance™, which evaluates forward citations: The more often a patent is the source for further innovations, the higher the index.

Corporate philosophy once again endorsed

The consistently high rating for patent relevance once again endorses Würth Elektronik Group's innovation and service strategy. The company sees itself not only as a dedicated producer and supplier, but also a supporter of customers and start-ups with knowledge transfer. Würth Elektronik Group developments serve as the fundamentals that make innovations possible every day in many industries. This strategy forms the bedrock for the company's international success in line with its mission, “Creating Together.”
