Nabaltec AG receives Stifterverband's "Innovative through Research" seal
Johannes Heckmann, Member of the Board of Nabaltec AG, stated as follows: "The quality seal from Stifterverband is the second distinction we have received this year recognizing our efforts in the field of research and development and our innovative achievements. Like the 'TOP 100' award which we received in July, we owe the 'Innovative through Research' seal above all to our team of employees, who work with extraordinary dedication to develop new ideas and continually improve our products."
The quality seal is the result of a survey conducted by Stifterverband in which Nabaltec AG took part. This survey, conducted at the behest of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, routinely collects data about corporate research and development activities. The results of this survey are important as a basis for policymaking in particular, such as developing stimulus programs and shaping conditions for the conduct of research in Germany.
"We are pleased that a well-known organization like Stifterverband has recognized our extensive research and development activities and, as an innovative specialty chemicals company, we take part in vital empirical studies," Johannes Heckmann continued. "As a company, we aim to strengthen the German economic scene, which stands for top quality and innovativeness, and we look forward to actively continuing our research and development work."
Nabaltec AG, with registered office in Schwandorf, a chemicals business which has received multiple awards for innovativeness, manufactures, develops and distributes highly specialized products based on aluminum hydroxide ("ATH") and aluminum oxide, as well as other raw materials, on an industrial scale through its "Functional Fillers" and "Technical Ceramics" divisions. The company's product range includes halogen-free flame retardant fillers and eco-friendly additives for the plastics industry. Flame retardant fillers are used e.g. in cables in tunnels, airports, high-rise buildings and electronic devices, while additives replace stabilizers containing heavy metals in PVC processing. Nabaltec also produces base materials for use in technical ceramics, the refractory industry and catalysis. Unlike halogenated flame retardant fillers, the products manufactured by the company's "Functional Fillers" division contain no hazardous substances and do not require separate disposal. Rather, the company's flame retardant fillers actually decrease the development of fumes hazardous to human health and the environment in the event of fire. Nabaltec maintains production sites in Germany and the US and plans to continue to develop its market position by expanding capacity, further optimizing processes and quality and making strategic extensions to its product range. On the strength of its specialty products, the company strives to attain the market leadership in each segment.
