Trelleborg recently announced it has launched the Trelleborg Sealing Solutions Innovation Award. Ideas are reportedly being sought that can provide engineering, technology and design solutions. The competition is open to anyone, and prizes will be awarded for the best submissions.

“Open innovation is one of Trelleborg’s core values, and we know that there are lots of ideas out there that can add value to existing applications today and those in the future,” said Robert Zahiri, director of Global Marketing and Communications. “We’re not just interested in suggestions for products, technology and materials but anything that relates to improving our business or the way we do business, for instance, novel suggestions for online tools, manufacturing processes or logistic related services.”

The winning idea will be converted into a tangible project, if feasible, and its creator awarded a cash prize of over $6,000. iPads will be awarded to the ideas in second and third places.
