"We are pleased that the jury recognized our company's attitude and mindset towards innovations. We would not be able to defend our position on the market without a strong innovation culture", says Jiri Polman, Managing Director of the Chomutov product unit.

At the site in Chomutov, Czech Republic, stainless steel umbilical tubes for the oil and gas industry are manufactured. The tradition of metallurgy goes back to 1887 when the Mannesman brothers founded the first tube mill.
