10. July 2024

Recognition at the German SME Summit: Ranga Yogeshwar congratulates ENGMATEC GmbH from Radolfzell on being awarded the TOP 100 seal. The award ceremony at the Summit took place on Friday, June 28, in Weimar for all SMEs that received the TOP 100 seal at the beginning of the year. The science journalist is accompanying the innovation competition, which is being held for the 31st time, as a mentor. In the scientific selection process, ENGMATEC was particularly convincing in size category B (51 to 200 employees) in the “External orientation / Open Innovation” category.


The TOP 100 company portrait published on the occasion of the award states (excerpt):


Complex technology, such as that used in cars, cameras or sensors, must be tested thoroughly before it is used. ENGMATEC has been developing corresponding testing systems and, increasingly, automation solutions for the electronics industry for 30 years. The company was taken over by the investment company Schauenburg International in 2019, which initiated a number of innovations. For example, the unique selling point of the special machine manufacturer was fine-tuned together with Furtwangen University in 2021. After researching the market and visiting IT trade fairs, it was clear to the medium-sized company that the shortage of skilled workers in electronics testing would continue to drive the use of automated testing and assembly systems. “We are therefore concentrating on innovative and pragmatic solutions for SMEs in this segment,” reports Managing Director Peter Sauter. Together with suppliers, for example, the company has specialized a collaborative robot, a so-called cobot, for use in automatic circuit board testing.

As ENGMATEC mainly develops customer solutions, this new product was also able to address other target groups.
