W RLDWIDE NEWS Innovative spirit The Endress+Hauser Group has been paying special attention to the protection of intellectual property for two decades now. Because innovative products are fundamental to the success of a technology company. The most recent figures confirm the success of this initiative: 318 initial applications in 2019 and a portfolio of more than 8,000 patents and patent applications worldwide mark new highs. The “Patent Rights Incentive Program” was created in 1999 to motivate employees of the Group to report inventions. “Since then, the numbers have been growing steadily.” The number of patents relating to digitization is increasing all the time, and the field of analysis technology – a strategic focus – is also gaining in importance,” says Dr. Andreas Mayr (photo). Chief Operating Officer Dr. Andreas Mayr is responsible for innovation in the Endress+Hauser Group. www.endress.com Pepperl+Fuchs success fully converts to SE The transition to SE supports the company’s long-term growth strategy and gives it additional agility in both consumer and capital markets. “The SE gives us a modern framework under corporate law that will enable us to gear our strategic positioning toward the future,” explains Werner Guthier (photo), CFO of the Pepperl+Fuchs Group. “The dynamic environment that is characterized by digitalization topics such as Industry 4.0 and the current corona pandemic makes it more important than ever to remain agile in the face of change.” Even with its new legal structure, Pepperl+Fuchs SE will continue to remain in the hands of the existing family shareholders. The company has established itself as a partner for users of automation technology around the world and offers the most comprehensive portfolio of tried-and-tested components for factory automation and process automation. www.pepperl-fuchs.com MY DRIVE IS FROM NORD!
