10th innovation prize awarded by German Timber Trade Federation "GD Holz" for world class innovation sunProtect
sunProtect successfully counteracts the natural phenomenon of colour change in wood on exposure to light and thus represents a solution for what was once tolerated as a feature of wood. Jury members Jens Blume and Katja Weingartz presented the Woody Award on Tuesday evening to Uwe Eifert, Managing Director Marketing and Sales Hamberger Flooring, Ewald Fischer, Sales Manager HARO Germany, and Klaus Trautner, Head Marketing and Product Management.
