ITALY: Winners of SAMOTER Innovation Awards

The Samoter International jury comprising highly qualified specialists  from across Europe has announced the winners of the Samoter Technical Innovation Competition 2011.

The awards go to:

  • Merlo for its PANORAMIC P 41.7 Hybrid lifting appliance,
  • Liebherr-Emtec Italy with its LIEBHERR ER 934 electrical industrial loader
  • SIMEM for its MMX3500 plant.

The Samoter Innovation Competition has been hosted by Samoter since its debut in 1964 and rewards companies exhibiting their previews at Samoter of construction and functional innovations introduced into their production.

This is a very important initiative as it rewards investments in  innovation and offers entrepreneurs and technicians  the chance to obtain documented information about technical-construction and functional developments affecting various aspects of site operations.

The award is assigned in relation to innovations and/or improvements concerning energy saving, productivity, ergonomics, safety in use as well as other aspects which in any case ensure added value for products.

In addition, a Special Mention was also made in recognition of the innovative qualities of the system by Mantovanibenne S.r.l. , which presented a demolition clamp with an intensified cylinder.
