Hager Group factory in Bischwiller wins innovation award

On 22nd November a team of five representing Hager Group’s Hager Electro Factory 6 in Bischwiller (France) were invited to the Innov´Acteurs Trophy Ceremony for participative innovation in Paris and they didn’t come back empty-handed!

The Innov´Acteurs Trophy silver medal is the result of two years of concentrated efforts from the whole factory team - not just the production area. In 2014, the factory 6 management team in Bischwiller set themselves several main goals to drive improvement and innovation in their factory site:

  • With the commitment of all factory employees, the factory will, by 2016, embody excellence in industrial progress

  • The excellence is based onattitude and well-being at work, lean efficiency and innovation.

  • Bischwiller’s innovation is based on several principles: cultural and mindset change, innovative process, organization, tools and projects.

  • Organising a regular “I-Day" with the ambition to generate new ideas (The teams managed to gather almost 1,000 creative ideas over the last two years)

On 28th September an audit done by five members of the Innov´Acteurs team took place in Bischwiller. The team had been convinced by the excellent work and methods to promote improvement and innovation at the Hager Group factory in Bischwiller.

Congratulations to the whole factory team at Bischwiller for winning Innov´Acteurs Trophy silver medal!
