In addition, the categories of “Job motor” and “World market leader” were also distinguished in the company competition. Innovative products, creative concepts and forward-looking ideas: Hesse is a state of entrepreneurial champions, world market leaders, job motors and innovators.
To allow firms to present their international competitiveness and their strong performance, the State of Hesse initiated the innovation and growth prize – the Hessen Champions. The secrecy surrounding the victors in all categories was revealed on October 27, 2015 at Hesse's Entrepreneur Day for uniting Hesse's business associations (VhU) in Wiesbaden in front of more than 1,000 guests by Hesse's Minister for Economic Affairs Tarek Al-Wazir and the President of the VhU. The nomination for Sensitec in the “Innovation” category was thanks to the company's development of new sensors based on the tunnel magneto resistive (TMR) effect and an energy consumption level that is up 100 times lower than that of comparable sensors. Whoever made it into the final is already a winner anyway having pushed through the harsh competitive environment. Texmer GmbH & co. KG from Fulda prevailed to win the award.
