One of the top 100 innovation champions: in 2024, we were honoured with the TOP 100 award for the first time. This seal of approval is given only to the most innovative SMEs.

The innovative strength of all participating companies was analysed on the basis of more than 100 criteria from five categories: innovation-promoting top management, innovation climate, innovative processes and organisation, external orientation/open innovation and innovation success.

VTH Quality Partner

Since April 2019, we belong to the quality partners of the Association of Technical Trade (German: VTH Verband Technischer Handel e.V.). We therefore move up to the group of 24 companies, which cooperate directly with the technical trade in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The Association of Technical Trade (VTH) closely cooperates with its own members as well as with industrial companies in many different economic sectors. The goal of this intense exchange is, for example, to optimise distribution channels or the training of employees in certain fields.

WEICON has been ranked as Fair Company 2024 by the Fair Company Initiative. The initiative is known as Germany’s largest employer initiative, which promotes a fair and sustainable working environment, especially for young professionals.


Top employer medium-sized businesses 2024

We are once again one of Germany's top employers in the SME sector. This is the result of a study conducted by the business magazine Focus-Business. We have been ranked six times in a row since 2019 and are once again one of the most popular medium-sized employers. This year, we even achieved second place in the „Industry“ category. The companies analyzed were assessed in terms of their working conditions, development opportunities, appreciation and corporate culture. The data for this came from various sources, such as an online survey or reviews on various online portals.

Healthy Employer 2023/24

The regional “Healthy Employer” (Gesunder Arbeitgeber) award by EUPD Research is based on the Corporate Health Evaluation Standard (CHES model) established throughout Germany. We received the award for our outstanding occupational health management. At WEICON, we have set up a large number of measures that focus on the health of employees. These include, for example, height-adjustable desks for all employees, an in-house physiotherapy practice, company bikes and a varied range of meals in the company’s own bistro.

ISO Certifications

The ISO 9001 norm is a globally recognized standard that defines the requirements for effective quality management in a company.

Top Company

WEICON is a "Top Company" – referring to the quality seal for employers rated as good on To achieve this label, a company must obtain a certain number of ratings and the rating point average must be a minimum of 3. Merely 3.9% of companies rated on kununu qualified for the "TOP COMPANY" seal – and WEICON is part of this exclusive circle!

Open Company

Even more exclusive is the small circle of companies, who received the quality seal “OPEN COMPANY“ – WEICON also ranks amongst them! With this seal, just 1% of companies on kununu stand out from the competition and draw lots of attention from potential applicants. To achieve the “OPEN COMPANY“ quality seal, companies must operate transparently, give feedback on poor ratings or invite employees to assess the company themselves

Transfer Prize 2018

In 2018, WEICON along with Professor Joerg Becker, professor in business informatics, and his team received the Transfer Prize by the University of Muenster. The prize is awarded for successful cooperations between research teams working at the university and extramural partners. The title of the award-winning joint project is: “ISO 9001:2015 with icebricks“.

Solvency certificate CrefoZert

In 2018, we were awarded the solvency certificate CrefoZert by the financial service company Creditreform. The certificate proves that WEICON belongs to the two percent of German companies which achieved an exceptionally high credit rating. The certificate also shows our business partners that WEICON is a trustful cooperation partner and that our company stands for economic stability and security.


In 2013, we were awarded as one of the best employers in our region. The assessment was based on an anonymous survey of WEICON employees on central issues such as trust, identification with the company, team spirit, career development, health promotion and work-life balance. The quality of measures in human resources and management work at the company were also assessed.
