14 July 2017 Manhole made from ecopolytec with high wood content impresses jury
Langmatz GmbH, based in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, has once again proven that the intensive research done by modern, innovative SMEs is driving forward technical developments and ecology. At a state reception with around 400 guests for the 25th anniversary of C.A.R.M.E.N e.V., Ilse Aigner, Minister of Economic Affairs and Media, Energy and Technology, awarded this year’s Ernst Pelz Award to Langmatz GmbH for developing and launching a manhole made with renewable, foam-moulded materials.
In Mai 2016, Langmatz was certified by AOK as a “Healthy Company”. The Bavarian AOK branch, AOK Bayern, supports companies in providing systematic occupational health management (OHM) with sustainable structures and in designing work processes in a healthier manner. As of this year, companies demonstrating outstanding performance are being awarded by AOK Bayern with Bronze, Silver, or Gold certificates.
Langmatz GmbH and SKZ Würzburg have made it to the final round of Europe’s most prestigious environmental business awards with their project ‘Renewable raw materials in infrastructure products’. The joint project also received the most votes in the Recycling & Resources category in the pre-selection phase, thus putting it among the best green projects of 2015.
The big day finally arrived in December 2013: Germany’s fifth WPC Convention in Cologne selected three winners to receive the WPC Innovation Award 2013, one of them Langmatz.
The prize is awarded for ideas in the field of product development and product design, as well as new material-compatible applications in the WPC (Wood Plastic Composites) sector. Particular focus was placed on innovations already on the market or close to a market launch.
Intertraffic, the world’s largest traffic engineering fair, held in Amsterdam from 27.03.2012 to 31.03. 2012, was once again the venue for presentation of the Innovation Awards for Road Safety, Infrastructure, Smart Mobility, Parking and Traffic Management.
Langmatz beat off the competition to win the Infrastructure category with its proposal for the electric vehicle charging infrastructure “Charging at the street lighting pole”.
Langmatz is proud to have been recognised in the Succession category of the Bavarian Founders Award 2011. The award was presented in Nuremberg at a ceremony before some 500 guests from the business world of Bavaria.
The Bavarian Founders Award – an initiative of the German Saving Banks, Stern, Porsche and ZDF – ranks as the most important award for entrepreneurs in Bavaria. Introduced in 1997, this prize is conferred on companies and start-ups for exemplary achievements in the development of innovative and viable business ideas, the establishment of new firms and for entrepreneurial engagement.
To commemorate its 20th anniversary this year the German foundation “Stiftung Arbeit und Umwelt” of IG BCE, the mining, chemicals and energy trade union in Germany, announced the award of an environmental prize in the field of “Energy efficiency with staff participation”. It was to be conferred in recognition of “achievements in boosting energy efficiency”.
The essential condition: The measures in question, must, with their production processes or services make a practical contribution to environmental protection and sustainable development with the involvement of the workforce. The competition was open to companies, administrative organisations and facilities based in Germany from any sector with a minimum size of 20 employees.
Major success for Langmatz GmbH from Garmisch-Partenkirchen.
At this year’s competition for the German Materials Efficiency Award 2009, which was announced by the Ministry for Economic Affairs and Technology, Langmatz GmbH from Garmisch-Partenkirchen was the only company from Bavaria among the winners, together with three other SME’s and a research institute.
