Steinert Elektromagnetbau GmbH honoured for innovation

(PresseBox) (Köln, ) At a festive ceremony on 26th November 2007, Professor Andreas Pinkwart, North Rhine-Westphalia’s Minister of Innovation, Science, Research and Technology, honoured Steinert Elektromagnetbau GmbH and its Separation Technology business unit for innovative achievements in recent years. At the event, which was hosted by the non-profit organisation Förderverein Zenit e.V., Minister Pinkwart presented the award certificate to Steinert GmbH Managing Director Franz Heiringhoff.

In his tribute to the award-winners, Dr. Hjalmar Kuntz had particularly high praise for Steinert’s outstanding performance in terms of continuous product development and the company’s thoroughly international approach to market development. In lauding Steinert as a "hidden champion", Dr. Kuntz was conveying the fact that medium-sized companies from North Rhine-Westphalia are among the driving forces of the German economy. Dr. Kuntz especially emphasised not only the innovative power that has been applied to continuous product development but also the thorough approach to market development in recent years.
