And the winner is: On 6 June 2018, the German Innovation Award 2018 was presented for the first time.
One of the winners was Hailo. Managing Director Jörg Lindemann accepted the coveted award at a festive gala in Berlin's Museum of Technology. More than 250 invited guests from business, politics and the media accepted the exclusive invitation and took the opportunity to talk to him.
The company was awarded gold for its innovative Hailo TP1 work platform in the "Excellence in Business to Consumer" competition category in the Gardening & Tools division. "A perfectly thought-out product", was the reason given by the expert jury.
With the German Innovation Award, which is presented in two competition categories, the German Design Council honors outstanding product innovations. The 650 entries included industry giants as well as hidden champions and start-ups. They all have one thing in common: a solution, a detailed innovation or a service that demonstrably offers added value for the user.
