Eurolaser GmbH, manufacturer of laser cutting machines from Lueneburg, is one of the winners of this year’s Top 100 innovation competition where an independent jury had examined innovation management of medium-sized companies and their success on basis of holistic scientific criteria. Eurolaser became one of the 100 best directly in its first participation.

Eurolaser particularly convinced the Top 100 jury with its offer for material certification. Material manufacturers send their samples to the application centre in Lueneburg. There, specialists test the laser cutting properties and determine the most favourable cutting parameters. The material receives a certificate of laser suitability and the information is stored in a central database. This database provides users with important information to set their individual cutting parameters and to work optimally with Eurolaser’s cutting systems right from the start, said the company in a statement.

The jury, Chaired by Dr. Nikolaus Franke of the University of Vienna, consisted of renowned representatives from economy, science, media and politics. In 2019 Top 100 took place for the 26th time. The award ceremony took place on June 28, 2019 as part of the 6th German Medium-Sized Business Summit in Frankfurt. Around 1,200 representatives of medium-sized companies attended the award ceremony. The event has a firm place in the calendar of innovators who use it for networking.

“This award is primarily due to the commitment of our employees. In order to maintain our innovative strength, we must ensure an attractive working environment that expressly welcomes and supports personal development and initiative,” said Matthias Kluczinski, Founder and Managing Director of Eurolaser.

According to Ranga Yogeshwar, the long-standing mentor, the focus of the competition was on the following characteristics of a good innovation culture: “openness to new ideas, tolerance of mistakes and a constant effort to make things new and different.”
