The co-inventor of the Near Field Communication (NFC) Technology and market leader for secure connectivity solutions for the Internet of Things, NXP has been rated among the 20 most innovative companies of its industry. This is the result of the latest “Innovator of the Year 2017” survey by the business magazine brand eins Wissen in collaboration with the online statistics portal Statista.
The rankings are available online here: (German only: https://www.brandeins.de/wissen/brand-eins-thema-innovation/innovation-laeuft/gut-besser-innovator/)
Both economic media have awarded NXP‘s research- and development work for a secure connection of communication in the areas of Industry 4.0 and autonomous driving as well as the company’s strong innovative power regarding secure communication solutions for the Internet of Things. With the development of combined hard- and software solutions to protect connected devices and systems, NXP is significantly contributing to strengthening Germany’s position as an industrial center and its competitiveness.
With their “Innovator of the Year” ranking, brand eins Wissen and Statista honor companies which “stand out from their competition through their services and products, smart processes and an exceptional business culture”. Over 20,000 executives from the Statista “Expert Circle”, 250 experts from the Berlin Institute for Innovation and Technology and 2,000 innovation awarded companies were asked for this survey.
For Rudy Stroh NXP Executive Vice President and CEO of NXP Germany GmbH the awards is recognition and incentive at the same time: “We are always very pleased when our achievements for our customers are acknowledged outside the market as well. A constantly high innovation performance is unthinkable without a permanent mobilization of the entire team. Each and every single employee, from engineer to CEO, shares our common goal, to make the world of tomorrow easier and more secure for businesses and users.”
The award by brand eins Wissen and Statista adds to a previous award. In May already, Stroh was honored for his contribution to NXP’s innovation-centered business culture: Markt & Technik – the leading German professional publication for the electronics industry – awarded him the title “Manager of the Year 2017.”
