HAMBURG, – MEYLE AG belongs once again to the most innovative companies and has been awarded the TOP 100 seal 2021 by compamedia, which since 1963 has been awarding the TOP 100 seal of approval to medium-sized companies for special innovative strength and above-average innovation success.
Innovation researcher Prof. Dr. Nikolaus Franke and his team examined the innovative strength of the nearly 400 participating companies. The researchers used approximately 120 test criteria from five categories as a basis:
Innovation-promoting top management, innovation climate, innovative processes and organization, external orientation/open innovation and innovation success. In addition, measures relating to the corporate response to the Corona crisis were examined and evaluated.
MEYLE was particularly strong in the categories “Innovation-promoting top management” and “Innovative processes and organization” at TOP 100.
The company was able to score points with measures and processes related to digitalization and demonstrate innovative strength, especially under exceptional circumstances regarding corona: MEYLE reacted extremely quickly and ensured to successfully accompany customers with individual offers such as MEYLExperience, as a digital alternative to the Automechanika industry trade fair, also with online trainings and customer visits.
The rapid corporate response to the pandemic also underscores the high level of digitalization at MEYLE: For example, flexible mobile working time arrangements were implemented for employees and converted to almost exclusively digitized processes within a very short time – including comprehensive technical set-up in relation to MS Teams as well as SharePoint.
“Corona has also shown us: Digitalization goes a long way!”, said Dr. Karl-J. Gaertner, CEO of MEYLE AG. “We were able to implement ways of working and digital processes and maintain our daily work routine at almost 100% despite contact restrictions – and all thanks to the great commitment of our employees to switch to the digital way of working from one second to the other. Therefore, a very big thank you also goes to all employees at MEYLE.”
Evidence of its innovation strength was also shown by the company’s product lines MEYLE HD, MEYLE PD as well as the MEYLE KITS.
“Especially with our MEYLE HD product line, we show how innovative we are and what added value there is for our customers and independent workshops,” affirmed André Sobottka, Board Member Sales – Marketing and Communications.
“The TOP 100 Award is also a strong signal that absolutely corresponds to our claim for better parts, solutions as well as services. A great motivation encouraging us to continue doing exactly that,” Sobottka said.
“The TOP 100 companies have consistently focused on being as innovative as possible,” said Franke.
