For more than 20 years, the “Top 100” seal has been recognizing companies for their innovative strength, thirst for knowledge and team spirit. Last Friday, Germany’s most successful think tanks received the coveted award, which was presented at the German SME Summit in Essen. The Franconian company INVENT Umwelt- und Verfahrenstechnik AG from Erlangen is now one of the top innovators of 2014.
The increasing burden on our environment is a problem that affects everyone. In particular, the pollution of water has been increasing for years. At the same time, the legislator is – rightly so – making even higher demands on the quality of the treated waste water. Future-oriented wastewater treatment therefore requires the use of innovative technology. INVENT Umwelt- und Verfahrenstechnik AG develops innovative, energy-saving and reliable products that make a significant contribution to protecting and preserving our environment.
At the various locations of the Erlangen-based company, clever minds are working on the realization of all kinds of ideas that follow the company motto “Water needs responsibility”. The product range extends from mixing technology to aeration technology and system technology. The latest achievements in the field of mixing technology are the CYBERFLOW®-Accelerator and the seventh, completely revised and revolutionarily improved version of the classic hyperboloid mixer, the HYPERCLASSIC®-Mixer evolution 7, which has been used worldwide in wastewater treatment for over 20 years.
When asked what characterizes the company’s climate of innovation, Dr. Marcus Höfken answered: “100% of all INVENT products are developed and marketed in-house by employees. As a result, there is a very solid and established climate of innovation, which is anchored in the “company DNA”.
INVENT not only received good ratings in the “Innovation” category, the “thirst for knowledge” and “team spirit” are also always encouraged in the Franconian company. A generous contingent of further education measures and general training courses is available to every employee.
