Origo2 from Vileda wins 'Pulire 2019 Product of the Year'
The Pulire organisers created the new Product of the Year award to recognise the research of professional cleaning industry companies as well as market response to their products. Toni D'Andrea, Paul Goldin, Michel de Bruin, Tibor Ritz, Virna Re and Cássia Almeida sat on the international judging panel.
During the awards ceremony, which took place at the Afidamp booth in Hall 6 of Veronafiere, the three finalists were revealed: the Vileda trolley, proclaimed the winner, the floor cleaning system by Unger, and the chemical product by Wermer& Mertz.
Taking part in this edition were a total of 33 products comprising 18 from Italian companies and 15 from overseas. Specifically, there were nine products entered into the Machinery category; six in Equipment; seven in Products & Accessories for the Environment; five in Cleaning, Maintenance & Disinfecting Products; three in IT services; two in Components and finally, one in the Accessories category.
The products were made by 25 manufacturers - 14 Italian and 11 international (Germany, China, the US, the Netherlands, Slovakia) which are also participating in the Pulire 2019 event as either exhibitors or co-exhibitors.
The selection was based on quality, reliability, environmental compatibility, ergonomic efficiency and convenience, all different characteristics but all equally important, because they represent the traits buyers are looking for.
As underlined by Toni D'Andrea, CEO Afidamp Servizi, the organisation that created the prize, the objectives of the international recognition are to "stimulate, incentivise and promote the study and commitment of companies in research and in results, supported in the idea of this prize, while understanding how important the market response is."
Pulire was a pioneering industry event and has held an Innovation Award for the last 10 editions and 20 years, designed to recognise the efforts and progress made by manufacturers in the area of innovation.
