Gienanth wins German Innovation Award 2019!

Gienanth is proud to be Winner of the German Innovation Award 2019 for a worldwide unique innovation.

The pads for brake systems are an elementary part of a disc brake and are subject to the highest safety standards. These are an essential component of the disc brake to bring 40 tonnes of moving mass in the shape of commercial vehicles to stop. Due to the bionic redesign of the Gienanth Group, the backing plate for brake linings has been redesigned in terms of function and production in honeycomb structure, and based on this, significant product properties could be highly improved.


This unique product innovation was honored by the official and independent German Design Council.


The German Innovation Awards honour products and solutions that distinguish themselves primarily by their user centricity and added value compared to earlier solutions across all industrial sectors – because innovations that shape the future and improve our lives come from all industries. Sometimes you recognise them at first glance – but often this is not the case. The German Innovation Awards intend to change that, like our unique and outstanding baking plates for commercial vehicle brake systems.
