Your original phrase doesn't seem very natural to me, and your additional information sounds even even worse.
If it wasn't written by a native speaker, we can only guess what they were trying to say.
'Came along' means something like arrived, 'no less a' suggests that that it was someone important or impressive.
But 'a company than Max Planck' doesn't make sense. It's sort-of a combination of two ideas.
