Celebrating a great awardIn October 2013, Deputy Managing Director Reiner Dietsche accepted the "Grosser Preis (Grand Prize) for Medium-sized Companies" awarded by the Oskar-Patzelt Foundation. In the Baden-Wuerttemberg region, IKA took first place in the 'Industry' category. More than 4000 companies were nominated – they are not permitted to nominate themselves. The jury took into account all aspects of the workplace and training, modernisation and innovation, commitment within the region as well as service, customer proximity and marketing.
German Design Council selects UTTD control for a "special mention"The IKA disperser "Ultra Turrax Tube Drive control" (UTTD control) was awarded a special prize in February 2014. In the competition for the "German Design Award 2014" it was selected for a "special mention". This acknowledges pieces of work whose designs display particularly successful features or solutions. Applications cannot be submitted for consideration for German Design Awards; products are nominated by the German Design Council. In 2012 the UTTD control received the red dot award.
First prize for many handsMore than 200 medium-sized companies from Baden-Württemberg applied for the award for social responsibility - and IKA took first place. Our project “HANDS For Children” thrilled the jury. Congratulations to the IKA retirees who raised money through voluntary work, which goes to the benefit of needy children and young people alike. For example, proceeds from this charity have been used to build schools in Ethiopia as well as provided for better infrastructure for in a Peruvian Andes village.
At the TOP for the second timeFor the second time in a row, IKA is among the most innovative “Top 100” of the German medium-sized companies. An impressive confirmation for our forward-looking company with a long tradition of excellence! The scientific judge of the competition, Prof. Dr. Nikolaus Franke, who holds the Chair for Entrepreneurship and Innovation at the Vienna University of Economics and Business, praised the award winners by saying that they are extremely creative, innovative and professionally led companies.
Red dot design award – produkt design 2013Another Red dot
The most sought-after red dot, namely the “red dot” for product design, was awarded for the Tube Mill control and the laboratory reactor LR 1000 - which means that not only are these products being exhibited online at red-dot.de, but also in the “red dot design museum” in Essen, which receives roughly 200,000 visitors a year.
As always, the competition was tough: This year, a total of 1,865 producers, designers and architects from 54 countries introduced 4,662 works. The jury evaluated them according to strict criteria focused on innovation, function and ecological compatibility. Our latest red dot award in product design proves that, once again, our sophisticated and innovative designs are setting international standards.
Two steps toward the podiumAnother acknowledgment for our Design Center came from the Design Council. This internationally leading center for excellence in design nominated the Eurostar 40 digital agitator, the T 10 basic and T 25 dispersers as well as the UTTD for the “German Design Award”. The special thing about this award is that you cannot apply for it; the jury honors the best products amongst those awarded.
Good news also came from the Oskar Patzelt Foundation which awards the “Grand Prix for Small and Medium-Size Enterprises”: IKA has reached the jury stage of the competition. The place we achieve will be decided in October of this year.
