Highest trust in the ILLIG brand

Heilbronn, December 13, 2021 – "Highest trust" in the ILLIG brand is certified by the latest survey conducted by the Institute for Management and Economic Research (IMWF), Hamburg, on behalf of Focus Money. For the fifth time the IMWF examined and evaluated public opinion. 21,000 companies from around 200 industries were scrutinized in an extensive process supported by artificial intelligence. ILLIG Maschinenbau received this award in an independent two-stage study from September 2020 to August 2021 based on 3.7 million recorded and analyzed mentions. Data was collected in the categories of seriousness, recommendation, trust, and quality. Among the 28 mechanical and plant engineering companies that made it into this category, ILLIG is in the top third.

Top performance of ILLIG

ILLIG is considered the inventor of industrial thermoforming of plastics and holds a top position in the industry with its technological developments, innovative solutions and submitted patents. ILLIG also transfers its technological know-how from plastics processing to paper and the development of recyclable packaging made of cardboard-plastic combinations as well as the production of pure cardboard blisters. The independent F.A.Z. Institute has already recognized ILLIG as one of Germany's leading most innovative companies in 2019 and again in 2021. The machine and tool manufacturer operates internationally and offers its customers resource-efficient and sustainable solutions with packaging development and high-performance packaging systems. The range of services includes development, design, manufacturing, assembly and commissioning of complex production lines and individual components.

Excellent sustainability

Sustainability, environmental friendliness, the reduction of plastics, and recyclability are issues that present the packaging industry with a wide variety of challenges. Packaging materials are valuable resources that need to be collected, recycled, and preserved. Therefore, the development and expansion of the circular economy is a critical goal in the coming years. ILLIG’s proven sustainable packaging solutions are guided by the principle of "Circular Thinking" and have supported this concept for a long time. In another study completed this year by the F.A.Z. Institute, ILLIG is one of only a few companies to receive the rating "Excellent Sustainability 2021". The institute evaluated 438 million data points in a social listing for about 21,000 companies. The topic of sustainability was examined broadly and comprehensively in three event types of ecological, social, and economic sustainability in order to find out which companies act in a particularly sustainable manner.
