  • KNIPEX-Werk C. Gustav Putsch KG (KNIPEX wire rope cutter 95 62 160) and
  • Wiha Werkzeuge GmbH (Wiha SpeedE).

 

What the jury says about the winners

 

Both nominees for the 2018 EISEN CSR Award were already nominated in 2016. Over the past two years, however, they have been able to embed sustainability much more intensively in their corporate strategy and further expand all categories of sustainability. KNIPEX-Werk C. Gustav Putsch KG convinced the jury members with the measures already implemented and the newly initiated measures.”

The independent jury justified its decision for the selection of the prize winners of the EISEN Innovation Award 2018 as follows:

 

Wiha Werkzeuge GmbH (Wiha SpeedE)

“Electricians are impressed by Wiha SpeedE: It is kind on the wrists, fast, productive and ergonomic.”

 

HAZET-Werk Hermann Zerver GmbH & Co. KG (HiPer fine tooth ratchet 916HP – 1000Nm, 90 teeth)

“Whether professionals or handymen, we are all familiar with the product. The innovation lies in the chrome-plated surface. The HiPer fine-toothed reversible ratchet 916 HP by Hazet enfolds its great power even in the smallest of building assembly space.”

 

KNIPEX-Werk C. Gustav Putsch KG (KNIPEX wire rope cutter 95 62 160)

“A perfectly designed, coherent overall concept provides the decisive advantage for demanding tasks. In the case of the KNIPEX rope cutter 95 62 160, this lies in the light and powerful elegance.”
