Innovation. Awarded for excellence.

For its impressive new developments in compact floor heating, Variotherm was presented with an award of recognition from the State of Lower Austria and the Lower Austrian Chamber of Commerce.

A forward-thinking attitude and activity among Lower Austrian companies is something that Dr. Petra Bohuslav, Member of the Provincial Government of Lower Austria, is always keen to promote, since only in this way can competitiveness on the market be strengthened and a significant contribution be made to securing jobs.

Against this background, the Karl Ritter von Ghega Award honours Lower Austrian companies in the categories “Innovation by research institutions”, “Innovation for the economy” and “Innovation for consumers”. The “Best of Innovation/Best of Science” exhibition and the award ceremony took place on Tuesday, 10 November 2015 at Grafenegg Palace.

Slimline ideas for more cosiness

The global success of the compact floor heating system developed by Variotherm, with a panel thickness of just 20 mm, has led to further growth by the company. Until now, the compact panels have been produced in a partially automated procedure. For over two years, the engineers at Variotherm and regional partner “Berndorf Sondermaschinenbau GmbH” spent countless working hours developing a fully-automated production line which perfectly supports the desired growth.

“With our 20 mm compact floor heating system, we are offering the optimum solution for energy-efficient, space-saving installation in the field of drywall construction and the renovation of old buildings,” says Managing Director Alexander Watzek, explaining the idea behind this highly innovative product line.
