RECARO Aircraft Seating 

This is the sixth time in a row that RECARO Aircraft Seating has received the Focus Open Special Mention Award. The honor went in 2021 to the CL6720 business class seat, which was developed with a special focus on environmental sustainability: as the lightest seat in its class, it can help reduce CO2 emissions from air travel. Furthermore, by using particularly durable high-grade materials, RECARO Aircraft Seating has enhanced the seat’s life cycle.  

In 2021, RECARO Aircraft Seating in Poland was honored for the company’s commitment to sustainability. This is the eleventh time in a row that the local branch has been awarded the Business Fair Play certificate, which recognizes good ethical conduct and positive relationships with the local community. On top of that, RECARO Aircraft Seating also received a 2021 Good Company Innovator award in Poland. This recognizes companies that have shown outstanding management, strong innovation and great entrepreneurial spirit.  

RECARO Gaming 

Despite having only joined the RECARO Gaming portfolio in the fall of 2021, the RECARO Rae has already received multiple awards and positive reviews. It was named by the German-language PC Magazin as the overall winner in the gaming chairs category, receiving 5 out of 5 stars and an “excellent” rating. In the product test by Basic Tutorials, it scored 91 points out of a possible 100, which earned it a Gold Award. And it was highlighted as a Hardware Tip by Gameswelt, a German-language gaming website.  

The RECARO Exo Platinum was rated as outstanding by Play Experience. In addition, the new RECARO Exo neck support was rated as recommended by the same magazine.

In 2021, RECARO Automotive products did very well once again in the Best Brands Readers’ Polls conducted by German-language trade journals auto motor und sport, sport auto, Motorsport aktuell and Motor Klassik, with the readers of auto motor und sport and sport auto selecting RECARO Automotive as the winner in the seats/sports seats category.
