With the "SME Innovation Award 2021/22", the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Verbraucherstudien (DtGV) is honoring numerous small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) for the first time this year that have distinguished themselves through special innovative performance. Patents, which are considered the hardest currency of progress, were the central factor of the award. The evaluation was based on all patent applications filed by German SMEs in 2020.
The MOESCHTER Group stood out with a large number of innovations in one of the most innovative fields of the study, the shaping sector, and was thus able to secure a top position among the best 10% of SMEs in its industry. The MOESCHTER Group scored particularly well with its research in the field of welding electrodes.
