As one of only five companies, Schmalz achieved a prestigious place on the list of nominees for the Hermes Award, one of the most important innovation prizes for the industry globally. The prize was awarded in April at the opening ceremony of the Hanover trade show in the presence of Chancellor Angela Merkel and U.S. President Barack Obama. Schmalz submitted the VSi vacuum and pressure switch, a product that gives users access to service and maintenance information of automated handling processes via their smartphone or tablet.
