Owen, September 5, 2016 - On August 15, 2016, Leuze electronic was included in the world market leader index (WMF index) of the University of St. Gallen as the champion in the field of optical sensors. To qualify for the champions category, a company must have an annual turnover of more than €50 million and earnings through exports of at least 50%. To fulfill further requirements, the company must have its headquarters based in the "DACH area" (representing the regions and countries with German as their official language) has to be active on at least three continents, and it must be the market leader in its relevant field. The WMF index is generated through objective research and transparently presents the world market leaders in the DACH area. The selection criteria and the values determined are disclosed and the entire index is made accessible to the public. The creation and scientific direction of the project is in the hands of Prof. Dr. Christoph Müller of the HBM School of Entrepreneurs, which is part of the Executive School of Management, Technology & Law of the University of St. Gallen. Amongst others, the Academy of German world market leaders (ADWM) based in Schwäbisch Hall and the German weekly business news magazine Wirtschaftswoche are cooperation partners of the project. The signet "World Market Leader 2016" represents the outstanding position of companies as "World Market Leaders" in their respective fields.
