Our new, intelligent corrosion protection film ICB has received the "Special Mention" award in the main category "Excellence in Business to Business" at this year's German Innovation Award. This was announced by the awarding Council for Design on May 23, 2023 at the award ceremony in the Futurium in Berlin. The competition honors products, technologies and services that break new, innovative ground and offer solutions that stand out for their added value for users and the environment. ICB: The Intelligent Corrosion Blocker meets both required criteria and offers added value to both its users and the environment.
Last year EXCOR made it to the second round of the jury, and this year we have been nominated again. We are talking about the Grand Prize for Small and Medium-Sized Businesses, which the Oskar Patzelt Foundation has been awarding once a year throughout Germany within the "Competence Network for Small and Medium-Sized Businesses" since 1995 in order to make the innovative power and creative potential of German small and medium-sized businesses more visible.
With the new ICB active ingredient mechanism EXCOR reached 2nd place at this year's Innovation Award of the district of Göttingen. Marketing Manager Björn Kniza accepted the prize on behalf of the entire EXCOR team: "We are delighted about this award. ICB sets a completely new standard in the field of corrosion protection and the 2nd place at the innovation award underlines this".
Trays ensure damage-free transport of components in the industrial packaging process. For metal parts, additional VCI corrosion protection is necessary. With the Layertray, EXCOR has now simplified this packaging process: the corrosion protection is directly integrated into the tray, which significantly simplifies and speeds up handling at the workplace.

Since 1995, the Oskar Patzelt Foundation has awarded the Grand Prize of Medium-Sized Businesses once a year throughout Germany in order to make medium-sized businesses, their innovative power and creative potential more visible.

The Göttingen Economic Development Corporation (WRG) nominated EXCOR (you can only be nominated by a third party). In the end, there will be three winners for each of the 13 competition regions, who can then claim to be among the best medium-sized companies in Germany. The decision will be made on 24 September.
