Yaskawa among Top 100 Global Innovators
2nd Quarter 2018, News & events


Third time in a row

Yaskawa is on the list of Top 100 Global Innovators for the third time in a row. Every year this coveted report recognises the world’s most innovative companies. The award was initiated by the Thomson Reuters media group in 2011. The selection criteria for a place among the top 100 most innovative companies in the world are global reach, the number of patents applied for and the sustained impact of inventions on shaping the future.

Founded more than 100 years ago, Yaskawa is a pioneer in the fields of drive technology, industrial automation and robotics. Then as now, the focus is directed primarily at solutions for tomorrow’s industry. “We invest heavily in areas associated with Industry 4.0 and sustainable energy use,“ explains Manfred Stern, CEO and president for Yaskawa Europe and corporate vice-president of Yaskawa Electric, on the occasion of the award. “Many projects are currently being conducted in this area throughout all the company’s divisions, and this has been seen by Thomson Reuters and recognised by the award.“

With its i3-Mechatronics solution concept, Yaskawa is spanning a bridge between traditional mechatronics and digital technologies - i3 stands for integrated – intelligent – innovative. i3 mechatronics is increasing productivity and quality by enabling the generation of machine and process data.
