K 2019, The World’s No. 1 Trade Fair for Plastics and Rubber, was held in Düsseldorf from 16 to 23 October 2019. The trade fair, is the performance barometer and global innovations marketplace for the entire industry, presenting over 3,300 exhibitors from more than 60 countries on approximately 178,000 m² of exhibition space. K 2019 featured lectures, keynotes and panel discussions, by experts from science, industry, politics, local authorities and non-governmental organizations. By featuring this broad panel of experts, they could deliver on global, European, regional and local answers to some of the mega-trends in society, currently impacting people.
The 9th edition of the EPSE Awards Competition was also announced on the 21st of October 2019 at the K Fair in Düsseldorf. After a warm welcome, the EPSE President introduced EPSE formally to all attendees and highlighted the main goals of the association: innovation, development, and quality. Before long, the evening reached its climax, when DANPAL was announced as winners in the category of INNOVATION. The award was proudly received, and seen as recognition for our efforts in bringing our Danpalon KINETIC panel to life!
It is DANPAL’s leadership in innovation that shone through, as taking top honors and winning the category for innovation, was no small feat. Our KINETIC panel is a first of its kind, with our color-shift technology, opening the doors for truly unique design possibilities. While the physical performance of our panels is never in question, the focus to develop a panel with unique aesthetic appeal would always be a challenge. Fortunately, DANPAL has a very active internal R&D team of engineers who were up to the task!
A project such as this spends sometimes years in development, behind the scenes, constantly being worked upon. For good reason, these projects are kept secret and receive no media attention, until our new product is ready for launch. Such was the case with Danpalon KINETIC, a panel type that allows you, to have the best of both worlds. We are excited to see the limits of our new panel, as architects develop conceptual designs, with KINETIC in mind.
No doubt, we will be entering the next round of awards scheduled for 2022, as we currently have other innovations in development with R&D. These next-generation products will again push the boundaries of what is thought possible. Our upcoming offerings will provide you the possibility to future-proof your business and will secure our DANPAL brand as global market leaders, in both design and innovation. Congratulations to our team at DANPAL for another remarkable achievement!
