Raimund Beck KG honoured with German Innovation Award in “Gold”
With the German Innovation Awards, the German Design Council honours companies that excel with their new, forward-looking technologies, processes, or services. The Raimund Beck KG excelled in the “Excellence in Business to Business” competition class in the “Building & Elements” category with the “LIGNOLOC®” wooden nail with a head for facades.
The German Innovation Awards was presented in a total of 40 categories divided into two competition classes: “Excellence in Business to Consumer” and “Excellence in Business to Business”. A total of 640 submissions from German and international companies from a wide range of industries were accepted for the German Innovation Awards 2022. The entries were judged by an international, interdisciplinary jury that guarantees an individual, expert assessment.
German Innovation Award in Gold – the statement of the jury:
“The new "LIGNOLOC®" for fastening wooden façades is the first collated nail made of wood that is processed by a pneumatic nailer and makes it possible to realize ecological construction projects entirely with sustainable or recyclable fastening systems. It is worth noting that the wooden nail is not only superior to conventional nails made of steel from an ecological point of view, but also offers several advantages, such as lower thermal conductivity and resistance to corrosion and many chemicals. In addition, significantly less tool wear can be expected when reworking the wooden elements fastened with the wooden nails. An exciting product innovation that can make a relevant contribution to the sustainable turnaround in the construction industry.”
Christian Beck, General Manager & CEO, Raimund Beck KG:
“We are incredibly proud to win one of the most renowned innovation trophies in Europe with the German Innovation Award and to join the ranks of the inspiring winners. For us, the award is a strong motivational boost and an incentive to consistently pursue our vision of making fastening technology more sustainable, efficient, and better overall. In addition, it is also a recognition and confirmation of the creative and passionate work of our entire team.”
