NEODITECH TAKES FIRST PLACE IN THE “HYBRIDIZATION” CATEGORY AT INNOVATION AWARDS CEREMONY
June 5 this year saw five companies from the Pays de la Loire Region rewarded for their efforts at the regional Run Innov awards ceremony in Nantes. Co-organized by local business economy news publisher Agence API and the CCO innovation network as part of the Web2day festival, the Run Innov ceremony gave recognition to companies that had boosted the region’s economy through boldly innovative concepts.
The Trophées Territoires Innovation event has been held every year since 2009 to present awards to innovative businesses and economic players in the Pays de la Loire. This special event has already promoted 140 award winners and introduced around 1,340 initiatives.
Of the four award classifications at Run INNOV, NEODITECH took first place in the “Hybridization” category, in recognition of the company’s firmly rooted regional presence. It was this presence that had encouraged a broad range of local players to become part of an innovative collaborative project, creating a gateway between different sectors.
NEODITECH designs and manufactures robotic and articulated handling arms. These industrial handling arms help to reduce repetitive strain injury while optimizing productivity. With a primary focus on the industrial market, NEODITECH is now extending its expertise to the logistics sector with an autonomous articulated arm named MZP that can be fitted onto pallet trucks. In 2018, this SME raised close to €900k to stimulate its commercial deployment, chiefly at an international level.
