The ‘Excellence in Production’ competition in the ‘Internal tool manufacturing under 50 employees’ category has been won by HARTING Applied Technologies for the third time. The company previously won in the same category in 2014 and 2016. Led by Managing Director Dr Volker Franke and Rainer Hussmann, Head of Tool Manufacturing, the team went to Aachen to receive the award.
Around 250 guests assembled for the award ceremony in the Coronation Hall in Aachen. The Fraunhof Institute for Production Technology (IPT) and the Toll Machine Lab (WZL) at RWTH Aachen chose the winning tool manufacturers from a field of 311 across four categories.
“This award was won by all the hard work put in by the people in our company who make leading-edge products. I am delighted that we have come out on top in this prestigious competition again,” said Dr Volker Franke, Managing Director, HARTING Applied Technologies.
