PRODEX Award

17.11.2016

This distinction is the most exclusive prize presented by the Swiss MEM industry. They are awarded to innovations of production technology.

URMA AG has been awarded the significant third place with its recently launched novelty «CircoTec RX small».

After the launch of the revolutionizing high-performance reaming tool «CircoTec RX» almost a decade ago, its little brother was introduced: «CircoTec RX small» is the worldwide smallest modular replaceable insert reaming system with diameters smaller than 10 mm.

The judges examined all the new technologies with respect to the level of novelty, originality, quality of practical application, and market potential. By all means, the innovation had to truly be different from the state-of-the-art.

As part of the official celebration, Urs W. Berner, CEO and president of URMA AG, was handed the bronze trophy. Feeling honored, he reacted as follows: «We foremost owe this success to the highly innovative people at URMA AG. I am proud of this extraordinary achievement which was the brain child of every single member of our team. Thank you very much! Innovations are vital for the Swiss industry to survive and stay internationally competitive.»

With this well-deserved award, the export-oriented company once more proved that it can assert itself in this highly demanding environment with the aid of innovative ideas and forward-thinking products.
