“Products have been judged not only on innovation, but also on better price, ease of use or even a clever solution that were added to a current product,” said judge Mike Horsten. “Also this year, market trends and customer needs were taken into account. We believe that this year’s winners with the solutions they offer are truly outstanding in their field.”
The EDP Awards are Europe’s only technology assessment in the industry and an open competition for all products announced and launched in the market within a year. The winners are selected by a commission of experts (the EDP Technical Committee), which evaluate the submitted products according to criteria such as innovation, quality, performance, and cost. Due to these strict criteria, there are no voting or other public votes. It is about technical criteria, not popularity. This is the only way EDP can guarantee manufacturers’ achievements in developing new technologies will be recognized.
The award is a recognition of Kornit’s innovation as it continues its journey to become a complete, sustainable textile printing solutions provider.
Kornit’s Softener solution is applied seamlessly during the printing process. No additional time, labor, or equipment is needed, and most importantly, it is a sustainable solution carrying Eco Passport certification and GOTS verification.
