2018 is just getting started – time for RECARO to look back on a year that was both exciting and successful. Last year the brand’s representatives accepted more than 20 awards from a wide spectrum of prizes and award categories.
RECARO is a brand rich in tradition with an impressive history. This history is also reflected in the book “RECARO: Seating in Motion” in fascinating texts and expressive images. An extremely successful work, as described by the “Auto Bild” jury. It therefore honored RECARO Holding for its uniquely recorded corporate history.
But it’s not just with the book project that the brand embarked on new, innovative paths. The RECARO Group actively fosters innovation culture and manages innovation systematically. Structures and tools motivate employees to find optimal solutions for products, processes, and organizations across all disciplines and divisions. From the expert’s point of view, this is exemplary – and for this reason the Group also received the “Top 100 Seal” as an “innovation leader among Germany’s small and medium-sized enterprises.”
The fact that RECARO Aircraft Seating is continuing to set new standards in the aviation industry as an innovation driver was underscored by several awards for the company’s products and processes in 2017: For example, RECARO Aircraft Seating received not only the Crystal Cabin Award in the “Passenger Comfort Hardware” category but also Airbus’s coveted supplier certificate and the prestigious Boeing Performance Excellence Award.
Even the smallest passengers are well taken care of in the innovative RECARO products – a claim underscored by a total of 11 awards that RECARO Child Safety received in 2017. The child seats did well in various categories including safety, comfort, and design. The German Design Award in the category “Excellent Product Design” was awarded to RECARO two times: for the RECARO Zero.1 Elite and for the RECARO Citylife.
RECARO Automotive Seating convinced both expert committees and customers, not least in terms of quality and comfort: As a “usual suspect” in this area, the brand came in first in its categories in various competitions, including the Best Brand readers’ polls in the trade journals “auto motor und sport,” “Motorsport aktuell,” and “Auto Bild,” as well as at the ETM publishing house.
