Schmidt + Clemens once again among the TOP 100 companies

Stainless steel specialist impresses with innovative products and processes

Lindlar, February 6, 2023. For the third time, the Lindlar-based stainless steel specialist Schmidt + Clemens convinced the jury in the TOP 100 competition, the only innovation competition in Germany that honors a company's innovation management and innovation success.

S+C came out on top in a demanding and scientific benchmarking process. The questionnaire was developed and evaluated by Prof. Dr. Nikolaus Franke and his team. Franke is considered one of the world's leading innovation researchers and is head of the Institute for Entrepreneurship. S+C's innovation potential was measured in the categories of innovation success, innovation climate, innovative processes and organization, external orientation/open innovation and innovation-promoting top management.

"We are very proud to receive the award now for the third time," said S+C Managing Partner Jan Schmidt-Krayer. "Our thanks go to the entire management team and all employees. You can only achieve such success as a team."
The award ceremony will take place on June 23, 2023, as part of the German SME Summit in Augsburg. That is when the Lindlar-based company will receive the coveted trophy from the hands of science journalist Ranga Yogeshwar; the certificate will have to do until then.

S+C is the world market leader with pipe systems for the petrochemical industry. The company produces complex stainless steel systems from centrifugal and static casting. Extensive services round off the portfolio. In addition to its headquarters in Germany, the owner-managed family company produces in Spain, the Czech Republic and Malaysia.
