SIKORA AG was awarded as “Germany’s innovation leader 2022” by the F.A.Z.-Institut. The worldwide patent applications of companies operating in Germany were analyzed for the study. As a leading company for measuring and control technology, SIKORA is among the winners of the study.

The survey evaluates patent families from over 500 technology and knowledge areas. Not only the number of patents filed in the last ten years is evaluated, but also their relevance. In this way, index points are given for the companies analyzed. These take into account whether the invention influences other inventions and how often a patent cites another patent family. The less often this is the case, the more innovative the patent is perceived. SIKORA received the award in the category “Measuring, Testing”.

Every year, SIKORA invests about 10 percent of its turnover in research and development of new measuring and control technology as well as inspection, analysis and sorting systems for quality control during the production of wires and cables, hoses, tubes, pipes and sheets, optical fibers or plastics. With around 350 employees in Bremen, Germany, and its 15 international subsidiaries, the company offers innovative solutions and customized customer service.
