A company of distinction  

HOMAG Group’s road to success is paved with multiple awards

Over its long and successful company history, the HOMAG Group may look back on an array of exceptional achievements. This has not gone unnoticed by the general public, resulting in numerous awards and distinctions over the past 50 years in a wide number of different fields: Distinctions have been awarded for innovative inventions, for design, corporate management, management of individual corporate divisions and strategy. While HOMAG Group has celebrated each and every one of these honors, it has never used them as a reason to rest on its laurels. On the contrary: we have always treated recognition as an incentive to do even better.

Ludwig Erhard Prize
In 2004, the Ludwig Erhard Award was conferred on HOMAG in the “Large Corporations” category. This prestigious accolade is considered Germany’s premier business award. It is used to recognize outstanding competitive achievement. The panel of judges was particularly impressed by the employee participation scheme which had been introduced back in 1974 and is integral to the corporate culture, and by the company’s exemplary practical application of its customer focus philosophy.





Patent Management Award
The IP (intellectual property) management award is conferred by the Fraunhofer Institute of Industrial Engineering (IAO) in recognition of sustainable and selective patent management. HOMAG was awarded the prize in 2010 by impressing the panel of judges with its active and prominent IP culture, which has resulted in successful integrative patent management. On average, for instance, the HOMAG Group registers four new patents every month.





Together with the vacuum technology company Schmalz, HOMAG was presented with the Axia Award in 2009. This award is conferred to medium-size corporations by the auditing firm Deloitte in recognition of successful sustainable corporate management.

Ligna Innovation Prize
At the innovation symposium staged by the woodworking industry’s lead trade fair Ligna, HOMAG was awarded the first prize in 2009. The organizers – the DRW Verlag publishing house, the Rosenheim University of Applied Sciences and SCHULER Business Solution – awarded the distinction to the company’s innovative laserTec system: The revolutionary new method of applying edging to panels without using glue to create a flawless edge appearance.



iF design award
In 2004, HOMAG was the winner of the hotly contested iF design award in the “Product Design” category from the renowned Industrieforum Design (iF). The award was conferred for the edge banding machine KAL 310. This prized award also testifies to the company’s endeavour to achieve visually appealing and ergonomic design in its products, as it believes that technological excellence and outstanding quality should be reflected in a machine’s external appearance and design signature.



Strategy Prize for Mechanical Engineering
The Strategy Prize for Mechanical Engineering conferred on behalf of the VDMA by the trade journal Produktion and management consultants Mercer Management Consulting for the first time in 2005 was awarded to HOMAG in the “Best Business Model” category.

The presentation speech was delivered by former German Chancellor Gerhard Schröder.



“Arbeit+” award for employee participation
At the German Protestant Church Synod Conference in 2005, the Chairman of the Protestant Church Council Bishop Dr. Wolfgang Huber conferred the “Arbeit+” workplace award on HOMAG. This award has been conferred every year by the Protestant Church in Germany since 1999 in recognition of outstanding employment policy. Particular mention was made of the employee participation scheme in place for the past 30 years, the company’s exemplary commitment to training and further education, and its perception of social responsibility.
