At the end of its third successful year, Trelleborg Sealing Solutions awards prizes to the winners of its ‘Innovation Award’ that offered an open invitation for submission of ideas for innovations connected to sealing products, processes and services.
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.
Ideas and desires
“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 are 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.
