Technologies for German Mittelstand Companies

The MITTELSTAND – the small and medium-sized companies that form the backbone of the German business community – is quite rightly referred to as the ENGINE of the German economy. 99.5% of all companies in Germany are SMEs. They possess tremendous innovative capabilities and make a decisive contribution to Germany’s INTERNATIONAL COMPETITIVENESS. Combined with their heartfelt passion and detailed, often highly specialized expertise, the pragmatic approaches adopted by such companies are a recipe for success for HI-TECH PROJECTS – even if as so-called hidden champions, their achievements often go unnoticed by the general public. In this issue of TRANSFER magazine, STEINBEIS EXPERTS offer insights into the challenges and highly specific demands of TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION at Mittelstand companies.
