Market Champions

Thuringia is proud of the companies in its territory. Their success is a reflection of the state's economic appeal. "Market Champions" presents a selection of high-performing companies: market and technology leaders that offer impressive products and services in Germany, Europe or worldwide.
The "Market Champions" project was created by the Thuringian Ministry of Economics and the State Development Corporation of Thuringia - LEG. A survey conducted by LEG identified 100 companies in Thuringia. They include well-known global players such as Analytik Jena, Carl Zeiss and Jenoptik as well as hidden champions like 3D International Europe, Häcker Automation and Smartfiber.
