RATEC receives Technical Innovations Award of SMOPYC
For its continuous commitment to R&D and proven innovation strength in the development of rational formwork and shuttering solutions for the precast concrete industry, RATEC was granted the Technical Innovations Award during SMOPYC (International trade fair for public works , construction and mining machinery) in Zaragoza, Spain.
The prestigious Technical Innovations Contest, which is traditionally held during SMOPYC, awards outstanding achievements in the development of solutions for the building and construction sector.
The highly qualified panel of judges is presided by Ricardo Cortés, technical director of the Spanish association of national construction firms (SEOPAN). This year’s awards were chosen to honour not a single technical development, but the overall innovation performance of a company.
RATEC has developed rational formwork solutions for more than 20 years and delivers its products to customers in over 72 countries worldwide today. From the switchable magnetic box up to modern formwork solutions for automated circulation plants RATEC has decisively shaped and influenced the development of magnetic formwork technology up to today. Furthermore, with upcrete ® technology RATEC has developed an innovative approach, that sets new standards for the vertical production of precast concrete elements up to 3-D room modules. Thus, it offers new – previously unknown - possibilities of prefabrication and provides impetus for those who plan and design the buildings of the future.
