“We are delighted to receive this award. It is proof that our work generates value for our customers. As a technology leader, we continuously work to further improve our products and processes,” Nils Petersohn, Managing Director of Hubert Stüken GmbH & Co. KG, comments the award. “We regularly launch innovations on the market. Our latest research and development work is a process with which titanium can be formed in a particularly efficient deep-drawing process. The multi-stage cold forming process has made entirely new geometries possible, including long and slim tubes. This creates real benefits, especially for our customers in medical technology, for whom titanium is an important material”.
