Prizes have been given to four ideas drawn from those added to the ‘Innovation Award’ forum on www.seals-innovation.com.
Robert Zahiri, Director Global Marketing and Communications at Trelleborg Sealing Solutions, says: “We’re always looking for innovations that will help us improve how we do business. The ‘Innovation Award’ is a great way of getting everyone involved in coming up with new ideas. We accept submissions from anyone, our own employees, students and especially our customers.
“We don’t look for complete solutions, just ideas and desires are enough, especially from our customers. We’ll be going through all this year’s suggestions to see if they can be implemented. Ultimately, if feasible, we’d like to put process and service related ideas into practice in our business or those related to products and materials, into research and development.”
Innovation ideas were called for in two different areas:
- Products and technology
- Digital services
It is expected that the award will be given annually with a new award program beginning in 2015.
