Maintenance, repair, wear protection and joining specialist Castolin Eutectic has presented HeidelbergCement AG with its Conservationist of the Year Award 2014.
Established in 1973, the award recognises companies that are committed to the protection of resources and the environment. Castolin Eutectic awarded HeidelbergCement with the accolade for its “sensitive approach to resources, the underlying innovation and its solution-oriented strategy," with particular regard to the area of industrial wear protection.
The award was presented by management of Castolin GmbH in the presence of the managing director of MEC Holding GmbH. Commenting on the distinction, Ralf Kohl, Group Lead Buyer at HeidelbergCement AG, expressed his delight as recipient of the award: "This honour is certainly a highlight in the collaboration between HeidelbergCement and Castolin. It gives us immense pleasure to have been chosen and be part of the hall of fame, when reflecting on past winners such as Busatis, ÖBB, Lafarge Cement and Sappi Paper."
Frank Hartwig, director of Servicing at HeidelbergCement’s Schelklingen plant in Germany, added:
"I virtually grew up with Castolin products. Even during my training I realised that Castolin was a reliable partner for wear protection. The award will occupy a worthy place in the Schelklingen Plant."
