Since 1993, compamedia has been awarding the Top 100 seal of approval to SMEs with particular innovative capacity and above-average success rates for innovations. This project has been coordinated by Professor Nikolaus Franke from the Institute of Entrepreneurship and Innovation at the Vienna University of Economics and Business Administration since 2002. Professor Franke is one of the world's leading experts in the field of user innovation. The Top 100 is mentored by journalist and television presenter Ranga Yogeshwar, and organised in partnership with the Fraunhofer Society for the Promotion of Applied Research.

Presentation of award by Ranga YogeshwarIn 2013, GDELS-G set a new standard by being the first manufacturing company in continental Europe to be certified under the British standard 'BS 11000 - Collaborative Working'. This is an approach to creating sustainable business relationships along the value chain, with the aim of increasing each partner's performance through the optimized management of costs, resources and innovation.

Through the approach "Innovation by cooperation" derived from BS11000, the staff developed various initiatives, as the development of carriers for multimodal transport or storage of high-value cargo, the establishment of a welding training and certification center and staff leasing in slack periods. All initiatives are in implementation or already in realisation process.
