2021 FINAT Awards: Schreiner Group scores big
At this year’s FINAT Awards presentation, Schreiner Group celebrated an outstanding success: The high-tech company impressed the judging panel in as many as four different categories. A particularly remarkable prize, the prestigious Innovation Award, went to PlasmaPatch from Schreiner ProTech using printed electronics for wound healing.
The first FINAT Awards were presented more than 40 years ago. The European Association of the Self-Adhesive Label Industry (FINAT) Awards bestows the coveted accolades annually in a festive ceremony. Like last year, the prizes in 2021 were presented in the format of an online event due to the coronavirus pandemic, which, however, in no way impaired the ceremonial character of the celebration. For Schreiner Group, the 2021 FINAT Awards were a resounding success. The family-owned business from Oberschleißheim near Munich, Germany, won first-place awards in four different categories.
Group victory in the “Innovation” category this year went to PlasmaPatch. Schreiner ProTech developed this EIF (electronics in film) product for Coldplasmatech GmbH’s plasma therapy for the treatment of chronic wounds using cold plasma. In addition, Schreiner ProTech won a prize for its display protection film that was recognized in the “Industrial” category. Schreiner MediPharm was the winner in the “Pharmaceutical” category with Patch-Safe, a product for safe storage of used transdermal patches. Schreiner PrinTrust was the first-place award winner in the “Automotive” category for its self-adhesive moped plate enabling easy application of license plates.
“For me, the FINAT Awards always represent an especially valuable form of recognition because they show that a wide variety of products from Schreiner Group are outstanding not only in terms of quality but also in terms of innovation. My thanks go to all employees whose capabilities and commitment have made this success possible,” says Roland Schreiner, CEO of Schreiner Group.
