Beneq awarded for best business potential

Finland | Posted on May 10th, 2010

Finland is one of the foremost countries in developing new nanotech-enabled applications. This enviable position has been achieved by unconditional and persistent work in many fields. FinNano, the Tekes-financed five-year national nanotechnology initiative, at its final seminar yesterday in Helsinki, acknowledged unique success stories in four different categories. Beneq was awarded for Best Business Potential. The three other laureates were Director Tapani Ryhänen (Nokia Research Center) for International Achievements, Prof. Esko Kauppinen (Aalto University) for Scientific Breakthrough and Academy Prof. Kari Rissanen (University of Jyväskylä) for Development of Finnish Nanosciences and Nanotechnology.

In the words of the prize committee (concerning Beneq): "Beneq Oy is, internationally speaking, the most successful nanotechnology company in Finland. Beneq manufactures and develops industrial coating equipment and technologies for the needs of industry. Coating application areas are especially in the fields of solar energy, flat glass, medical, printed and flexible electronics, and lighting solutions.

The success of Beneq is based on high-quality competence in atomic layer deposition (ALD) and the aerosol technology patented by the company. Beneq has built successful international business operations, and the company's production is primarily exported to Europe, Asia and the United States. The company's mission is to grow into a globally significant solution provider of equipment and technology for demanding industrial applications within its customer industries. Beneq has already been selected for the list of leading Nordic cleantech companies."

Beneq CEO Sampo Ahonen comments the prize: "Beneq is naturally honored to have been acknowledged in this way. One must bear in mind, however, that a prize of this kind is an acknowledgement addressed to the entire community within and surrounding Beneq. With this I mean Beneq staff, our partners and collaborators, without whose input we would not be where we are today. For this community, this prize is truly rewarding and encouraging, especially for the activities that lie ahead."
