Feb 08, 2018

Viscom AG has just been listed as World Market Leader Champion 2018 in the World Market Leader Index (WMFI) of the University of St. Gallen and Academy of German World Market Leaders.

Viscom's inclusion among the World Market Leader Champions of 2018 brings yet another confirmation of the innovative inspection solutions offered by the company that are in demand around the world, particularly by electronics manufacturers. The WirtschaftsWoche (German business weekly magazine) online portal regularly publishes the entire WMFI. The World Market Leader Index was developed by the Henri B. Meier Entrepreneur School, part of the Executive School of Management, Technology & Law of the University of St. Gallen (Switzerland).

The Academy of German World Market Leaders (ADWM GmbH), located in Schwäbisch Hall, Germany, is an active partner with Baden-Württemberg's former Minister of Economic Affairs, Dr. Walter Döring. An objective and transparent selection process was established for the WMFI. Among the criteria are company activity with their own production or sales subsidiaries on at least three continents, annual turnover of at least € 50 million – of which, at least 50 percent in export business – and first- or second-place market leadership in the corresponding segment. The collected information and its scientific evaluation resulted in a new World Market Leader 2018 list for Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

Viscom was ranked as WMF Champion in the category "Optical and X-ray Serial Inspection Systems" of the segment "Machine and Plant Engineering." Market leaders listed in the Index include well-known companies such as Continental, Daimler, ifm electronic, kurtz ersa, Robert Bosch and Würth.
