Bühler Supplier Innovation Challenge – The Winners of 201207/02/2012 Uzwil – The winners of the first Bühler Supplier Innovation Challenge have been chosen. Due to the large number of innovative and promising ideas, the Steering Committee – directed by the Bühler Corporate Supply Management and Corporate Technology – has decided to continue with five instead of the three originally envisioned partnerships. Bühler looks forward to building an innovation partnership with the following companies: Bossard, Marti Engineering, Oswald, Schneider Electric, and Siemens. The selection of the five winners was anything but easy for the Steering Committee of the Innovation Competition. All the ideas presented convinced the panel by their innovation power and creativity. For this reason, the Steering Committee decided to ultimately continue with five instead of the three partnerships originally planned. The names of the winners of the first Bühler Innovation Competition are: Bossard, Marti Engineering, Oswald, Schneider Electric, and Siemens.
In a next phase, initial meetings will be held, and the business units of Bühler concerned will be involved in order to further develop the contents of the ideas. The first results will be presented on the next Bühler Supplier Event Day on November 22, 2012.
In view of the positive feedback received throughout from the participating suppliers and the specialist functions of Bühler, the decision has been made to hold the Innovation Challenge on an annual basis. The road into the future will increasingly be marked by the building and exploitation of innovation partnerships.
