"Winning the 2024 TOP 100 for the third time in a row is a great confirmation that innovation is deeply implemented in the DNA of our company and intelligent montrac® transfer solutions”, says Sven Worm, CEO of montratec GmbH. "With the 2023 acquisition by Columbus McKinnon (CMCO), a leading global provider of intelligent motion solutions and product technologies for lifting, pulling, securing and conveying materials, we will continue as an operating company within the Columbus McKinnon portfolio. The takeover by CMCO means global resources for montratec that enable us to further continue investing our innovative strength in the creative development of industry-leading, individual intralogistics 4.0 solutions."

The TOP 100 innovation competition recognizes German SMEs for their innovation management based on a scientific selection process. In this unique innovation competition, an independent research team led by Prof. Dr. Nikolaus Franke (Vienna University of Economics and Business) identifies the most innovative and sustainable companies based on more than 100 criteria in the five assessment categories: 'Innovation-friendly Senior Management‘, 'Climate of Innovation, 'Innovative Processes/Organization', 'Outward looking/Open Innovation' and 'Successful Innovations'.

The montrac® transfer system consists of a modular designed, flexible aluminum monorail system and different transport shuttle types that operate autonomously on the monorail and independently find the optimal route to their destination - even via different transport levels and under the ceiling. “A key component of our intelligent intralogistics 4.0 solutions is the internationally standardized, manufacturer-independent IO-Link control interface”, explains Worm.

“As a provider of individual and future-oriented intralogistics 4.0-solutions we have a dedicated innovation mandate to recognize customer needs and industry-specific trends in intralogistics and process automation at an early stage. The repeated award is an incentive to continue to promote and expand this culture on innovation for keeping our customers one step ahead of the competition in the future”, summarizes Worm.
