Awards represent recognition of our achievements and we are very pleased to receive them. When the range stretches from the iF product design award to the award for family-friendly companies, this is the perfect tone to describe our company: innovation is what drives us and we continuously strive for improvements, both in our products and in our greatest asset, our employees

Our highlight in 2021: The Business Award, presented by the Cologne Business Club. The jury's reasoning: "igus leads the markets worldwide for energy supply systems, highly flexible cables, plain and linear bearings made of plastic. Research in the industry's largest test laboratories is constantly producing innovations and internal start-ups." We are thrilled with the award and it inspires us to become even better!
