Nabaltec wins award as ideas factory
- Nabaltec is one of the Top 100 firms for the sixth time in 2012
- Ranga Yogeshwar honours Germany's most innovative SMEs
Schwandorf, 25 June 2012 - On 22 June 2012 in Friedrichshafen, Germany's most innovative small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) were awarded the Top 100 seal of approval by journalist and television presenter Ranga Yogeshwar. Nabaltec AG was once again among the recipients of this award in 2012.
Over a period of several months the Vienna University of Economics and Business Administration has examined the innovations management systems used by 281 medium-sized German companies. The best of them - including Nabaltec AG for the sixth time - receive the prestigious Top 100 award. The member of the board, Gerhard Witzany was delighted to have won this accolade and emphasised that this achievement had been a team performance. 'I see this award as a recognition of the work done by our staff. Their enthusiasm and efforts are the key driver behind our innovation. At the same time we have put in place the right processes to ensure that this creativity can unleash its full productive potential. Our success is a combination of these two factors.'
When developing its products Nabaltec often works closely with key customers, whose preferences and requirements are incorporated into the initial specifications given to the company's chemists. During the laboratory stage Nabaltec then conducts tests at the customer sites. The subsequent experiments carried out at pilot plants with production on an industrial scale ultimately result in field tests being performed at the eventual buyer's premises. This client may then in turn have to have the new product tested and approved by its own customers. 'This collaboration can in some cases mean that we supply a particular client with a product exclusively for one or two years', distinguished the member of the board Johannes Heckmann.
In order to ensure that the company nurtures its strong innovative capabilities going forward, Nabaltec organises an inhouse conference twice a year at which its application technology, sales and production departments discuss the latest development issues with the members of the board. The findings of these conferences are then posted on the intranet so that they are available to all 397 members of staff.
compamedia - in collaboration with the Vienna University of Economics and Business Administration - presents awards to a total of 116 firms (no more than 100 in each of the three size categories), which include 51 domestic market leaders and 20 global market leaders, including Nabaltec.
