Edwards Group Limited (NASDAQ: EVAC), one of the leading manufacturers of sophisticated vacuum products and abatement systems and a provider of related value-added services, has been awarded a Gold Stevie® Award in the prestigious 9th anuais International Business Awards.
Edwards beat off stiff competition from across the globe to be named winner of the “Best New Product or Service of the Year – Industrial Products & Services” categoria para a sua bomba de vácuo seca CXS líder na sua classe.
The CXS is the latest generation dry vacuum pump for the chemical and pharmaceutical industries and builds on Edwards’ strong record of innovation. Since its introduction in 2011, it has set new industry standards for reliability, performance and control.
Dois elementos do CXS de última geração o diferenciam das bombas concorrentes. A nova tecnologia de parafusos cônicos facilita o manuseio de líquidos e sólidos, levando a uma alta confiabilidade operacional, ao mesmo tempo em que fornece vácuo profundo até a 10-3 mbar A gama de recursos integrados de controle e segurança torna o CXS mais fácil e mais barato de instalar quando comparado a algumas bombas atualmente disponíveis no mercado.
Edwards believes this is the first “plug and pump” system, an advance that has made ‘vacuum on demand’ a reality. The development of the CXS has proved to be a crucial tipping point for vacuum, taking the technology from ‘specialist equipment’ to ‘utility’.
Commenting on the award, Matthew Taylor CEO at Edwards said: “2012 has truly been a golden year for Edwards. After being honored with a momentous seventh Queen’s Award earlier this year for our nEXT turbomolecular pump, and then successfully listing on the NASDAQ market, we’re delighted to build on our success with a Gold Stevie® Award.
“To receive this accolade for the CXS, so soon after its launch, is testament to the hard work and expertise of all those at Edwards who were involved in its conception. This award sets the CXS’ credentials beyond refute. To be standing shoulder to shoulder with our fellow Stevie Award winners places Edwards at the forefront of international innovation.”
Os prêmios 2012 do International Business Awards viram mais de 3,200 entradas sendo enviadas de mais de 50 países. Os vencedores foram selecionados por um painel de executivos especializados em reconhecimento ao seu compromisso com a excelência internacional em inovação, crescimento e design.
“Entries to the IBAs grew substantially this year,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. “Despite slow economic conditions in much of the world, the quality of nominations was outstanding, demonstrating that there are many companies that are innovating and growing regardless. We’re looking forward to celebrating this year’s Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie winners at our gala event in Seoul on 15 October.”
