For the second-straight year, ZAHORANSKY has been awarded the German Test Seal “Innovation Award 2019: Germany’s Most Innovative Companies” by FOCUS and FOCUS Money and the International School of Management (ISM) in Dortmund. A total of 5,000 companies with the highest number of employees in Germany from the major B2C and B2B sectors were examined in an independent analysis procedure. As a result, 900 companies from over 100 sectors received the coveted test seal of the leading news magazine FOCUS. In mechanical engineering, only fourteen companies besides ZAHORANSKY received this recognition. For the test, 20 million consumer votes and citations in digital media on the topics of innovation activity, investments, research and development, new products and technologies were examined. Using statistical methods and artificial intelligence from 350 million online sources, it was possible to determine the real innovative strength of companies as perceived by consumers.
