The ThermoGeniusTM water heat exchanger received the pro-K award 2019 as part of the pro-K competition organised by Industrieverband Halbzeuge und Konsumprodukte aus Kunststoff e.V.
Each year, the pro-K award is given to the best consumer products made of plastic in recognition of their outstanding product properties. The main criteria for this award are innovation, product design, and—most of all—functionality.
The pro-K award stands for quality in plastic and is the only competition that focuses exclusively on plastic products. The winners are selected by a high-calibre, independent jury of experts.
In 1979, pro-K Industrieverband Halbzeuge und Konsumprodukte aus Kunststoff e.V. launched an industry competition for consumer products made of plastic, bringing the material’s diverse possibilities into the spotlight.
A total of 19 consumer products made of plastic, including products from Gardena and Kärcher, were winners in the ten categories of the pro-K award 2019. The winning products reflect the diverse applications of plastic, ranging from office supplies and household products to toys.
The awards has been presented on 10 January 2019 as part of the pro-K award night in Frankfurt, Germany.
