Award: Innovation Prize for Lightweight Brake Pedal

BOGE Elastmetall has been awarded this prestigious regional ‘Innovation Oscar’ for the first time by the Verbund Oldenburger Münsterland. Burkhard Tiemann, head of the plastics product line, accepted the innovation prize, a sculpture of the Markenhausen designer Alfred Bullerman, on 24th November on behalf of the CEO Dr Torsten Bremer. 396 guests, including a nine-member BOGE team, celebrated with the prizewinners at the traditional gala evening for the regional economy at the Cloppenburg town hall.

The laudatory speech for BOGE emphasized that BOGE Elastmetall GmbH had succeeded in developing two innovations at the same time: both a product and a process. The company was said to have released ‘the first high-safety structural component made from plastic in automotive serial production’. The process developed for this has no equal anywhere in the world. The team heaped praise on the creative drive of “helmsman” Dr Torsten Bremer. They were also convinced that the plastic material the company developed, as well as the new process, would find many other applications in car manufacturing and would find its way into the automobile mass market in the future via a more developed production process.
