Red Dot Design Award
For this year's Red Dot Design Awards, participants from 54 countries registered more than 5,500 products and innovations. The trophy is exclusively reserved for products with outstanding design that considerably sets them apart from competing products in the marketplace. An international jury adjudicated the prizes, which will be handed over during an awards ceremony in the Red Dot Design Museum Essen in Germany.
Jungheinrich won out twice in the category Vehicles: To start with, our high rack stacker EKX 516 received the sought-after award. The electric tri-lateral stacker was successful thanks to its clear shapes and sinewy surfaces. Its design makes for a striking appearance, distinguishing the vehicle significantly from competitor's trucks. The EKX's design not only emphasizes the value of the brand Jungheinrich, it also highlights the characteristics of the truck: a combination of the latest technology and intelligent solutions for maximum productivity and efficiency.
Double win in the category Vehicles
With the electric ride-on pallet truck ERE 120/125/225, Jungheinrich was also declared a winner in the category Vehicles. Thanks to a customizable modular system, our new ERE provides more than 4,000 different configuration options, thus already taking into account the growing demand for flexibility of the future market. Despite this high variance, the ergonomic human-machine interfaces as well as the access and temporary storage options are always positioned in the same place, ensuring a recognition value of 100 percent. The distinctive Jungheinrich design with its combination of dynamics and durability conveys competence that creates trust and incites enthusiasm.
Honoring the Jungheinrich design strategy
Professor Dr. Peter Zec, founder and CEO of the Red Dot Award, honors the winners: “The Red Dot winners are pursuing the right design strategy. They have recognized that good design and economic success go hand in hand. The critical appraisal of the Red Dot jury documents their high design quality and is indicative of their successful design policy.”
