1st Place: Energy Star 2018
Sustainable investments pay off – and are honored accordingly. On 22. November 2018, our colleagues Marielen Haider-Madl, Wolfgang Lindorfer and Peter Krenmayr were honored with the Energy Star 2018 Award of the State of Upper Austria. In the category “Energy Innovation for Sustainable Workplaces”, our “green” Gemba Support Center was awarded 1st Place. We are proud and very happy!
For the first time anywhere around the world, TIGITAL® managed to develop a cost-efficient alternative to analog printing processes in the area of food packaging. With printing speeds of 300 m/min. at a resolution up to 1200 dpi never achieved before, our TIGITAL® Inks are paving the way into the digital age for the packaging industry. With all that, the water-based inks have the added advantage of being based on a special formula suitable for indirect contact with food.
Our product convinced the jury at the OÖ State Award for Innovation in 2018: 3rd Place in the “Large Company” category provides all the proof needed.
As of June 2017, TIGER has been a member of the Climate Alliance of Austria, a global partnership for global climate protection among European communities, companies and educational institutions and the indigenous people in the rain forest areas of the Amazon. Aside from ecological aspects, the Climate Alliance also observes social and societal interplay, such as inequality in resource distribution and opportunities in life.
As part of the comprehensive operational check as a prerequisite for acceptance into the Climate Alliance Austria, all relevant areas of the operation were analyzed, savings potentials calculated and opportunities for subsequent action were pointed out. We were able to successfully turn initial measures, such as procurement of high-quality bicycle racks for our bicyclists, into reality already.
Our TIGER, Sibylle Jilg, was able to enjoy receiving the “OÖ Forscherinnen-Award 2015“ –organized by the state of Upper Austria and the Upper Austrian Research GmbH. With her project to develop toner powder for digital printing in industrial digital printing in the category “Unternehmens R&D / Sonderpreis: Jungforscherin” (Company R&D / special award: Young Female Researcher), the Chemist beat out a field of 120 contestants.
In 2015, the 2nd place of the prestigious research prize for surface finishing awarded by the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology and Automation went to TIGER. The subject-matter of the award was our development cooperation on the topic “Powder Coating - inside finish of cosmetics jars”.
As part of a competition sponsored by the WirtschaftsBlatt (business publication) in cooperation with Bankhaus Spängler, the Austrian Notaries Federation, and BDO Austria, the search was on once again in 2014 for “Austria’s Best Family Company”. A distinguished jury of experts, including then-Commerce Secretary Reinhold Mitterlehner, assessed the companies based on their economic development and according to specific topics in the areas of sustainability and culture of values.
In addition to the main prize for Upper Austria, TIGER was also able to bring home the national title.
