The HARTING Technology Group has once again been presented with the “Manufacturing Excellence (MX) Award”. On this occasion, the HARTING local subsidiary HARTING Electric won the award in the “sustainability” category.

The local subsidiary HARTING Electronics climbed the winners’ podium last year in the “information technology” category.

This time HARTING Electric has impressed the jury with its highly effective deployment of sustainable and eco-friendly production processes. “I am delighted that HARTING has once again received this prestigious award. This illustrates that not only are we highly successful on the market with our HARTING products and solutions but our contribution to environmental protection and sustainability is also being recognized by experts,” remarked Torsten Ratzmann, Senior Vice President Production and Logistics at the HARTING Technology Group.

The Harting family, which owns the company, focused heavily on the economic, environmental and social aspects of its business activities at an early stage. These key elements of its corporate vision had already been established by 1996. Over the years HARTING has received numerous independent certifications verifying its commitment to corporate social responsibility (CSR), such as ISO 26000.

“The issue of sustainable production will remain high on our agenda in future. We regard sustainability as implementing green projects while keeping the figures in the black,” summed up Ratzmann.

The MX Award has honored best-practice companies in the manufacturing sector since 2005 under the maxim “identifying strengths – setting standards.” The objective is to recognize and promote innovative solutions and to make them generally accessible.
