11/15/2011 - Rieter Award Week 2011 a resounding success

At the end of September 2011, Rieter conferred the coveted Rieter Award for the 22nd time on students and young professionals in the field of textile engineering. Seven prospective textile professionals were presented with the Award and again this year, the winners were invited to visit the Company’s headquarters in Switzerland. Special this year was that following the visit to Switzerland, the journey continued on to Barcelona (Spain) for the Textile Machinery Exhibition ITMA 2011. The Award ceremony was then held in Barcelona.

In close cooperation with universities and professors worldwide, the Rieter Award Jury sought and found the Award winners for this year. The seven prizewinners 2011 are: Mr. Md Almirany from Bangladesh, Ms. Qin Wang from China, Mr. Avinash Kesaraju from India, Mr. Kashif Nadeem from Pakistan, Ms. Nazan Erdumlu from Turkey, Ms. Nguyen Bao Quyen Le from Vietnam and Mr. Pavel Murychau from Belarus. Regrettably, Mr. Md Almirany from Bangladesh was not granted a visa and could therefore not participate in the Rieter Award week 2011.

Highlight was the visit to the ITMA 2011

The varied program for the Award week gave the winners an insight into Rieter’s products and production. In addition, personal contacts could be established in the Sales and Management. The tightly packed program included sightseeing in Switzerland and also in Barcelona. At the traditional Rieter Agents Day prior to the ITMA, presentation of the Award by the Business Unit CEO Peter Gnägi was carried out. Of course, the following two days with the visit to the ITMA were a highlight for the young textile professionals.
