ROI-EFESO is Germany's leading consultancy in the discipline of "Engineering, Production & Industry 4.0". This is the result of a survey of more than 1,000 executives from large and medium-sized companies conducted by the Wissenschaftliche Gesellschaft für Management und Beratung (WGMB) for the renowned survey "Hidden Champions of the Consulting Market 2024/25". ROI-EFESO has been awarded the seal of quality for the fifth time in a row and has held the top position in this consulting discipline since 2015. 

Best ratings for production and Industry 4.0

"We are delighted to receive this award once again and would like to thank all of the study participants who made this result possible. As we approach the end of the year, this gives us additional motivation to continue supporting our customers in 2024 with a hands-on mentality and the highest standards of performance," says Hans-Georg Scheibe, Managing Partner of ROI-EFESO. 

The survey covers 20 thematic segments and ten sectors. In the "Engineering & Production" segment, ROI-EFESO once again achieved first place. To this end, the top managers surveyed assessed the consultancy's expertise in the fields of production, R&D, technology management, operational efficiency, shopfloor management, global footprint and Industry 4.0. 

The study also focused on the most important criteria when selecting a consulting firm. ROI-EFESO is positioned here in "Communication at specialist level" as well as in "Thought leadership" and "Methodological knowledge".


Quality seal from WGMB and Capital

The “Hidden Champions” seal is the oldest seal of quality awarded for outstanding consulting services in Germany. It has been awarded by the WGMB together with the business magazine “Capital” for almost 20 years. 

Over 1,000 top managers in Germany whose companies have an annual turnover of ≥ 500 million euros were surveyed. They were asked to name unaided ten management consultancies. To be listed as a Hidden Champion, the competence of the consultancy named had to be rated higher than that of the three leading global consultancies McKinsey, BCG and Bain in at least one consulting area or sector, in addition to other criteria. 

All results of the evaluation are published in the 01/2024 issue of Capital. Further information on the study is available on the WGMB's Hidden Champions website

We would like to thank all those involved for the trust they have placed in us and for all the recommendations that have led to us receiving this renowned seal.
