Why Research Germany is the Best Research Partner for Industry Lists in Germany
The research team of Research Germany has established itself as a reliable partner for industry lists in Germany. The innovative online shop and the associated immediate availability of the databases makes the research-on-demand model of Research Germany so attractive. Our industry lists are always kept up to date and are regularly expanded. For our research we rely on our developed webcrawlers and other software-based solutions as well as (and especially) on the experience of our team. We believe that completely automated research solutions do not produce good results and we process all databases manually before we publish them. We perform the segmentation and categorization of the companies independently and ensure that only relevant companies appear in the respective lists. Our portfolio of industry lists also includes, for example, the list of the 100 largest machine engineering companies in Germany or the database of the 200 largest companies in the electrical and electronics industry. If you are interested in lists that we do not yet offer in our online shop, we look forward to a short message to contact[at]researchgermany.com, so that we can check the possibility of an individual list creation. Also if you are interested in free preview files of our databases, please feel free to contact us. We are looking forward to your message.
