For the second year in a row
Granberg AS has won the international «Red Dot Award», one of the most prestigious and important design awards in the world, for product design. Like the year before the company has won with a new product in their line of impact- and cut-resistant gloves.
This design award is an important acknowledgment of our exceptional product development. Besides coming up with the top most quality and product performance, we push boundaries in design to give our customers the best there is in hand protection without compromising comfort, grip or functionality, says owner and CEO Ole Marthon Granberg. The glove is designed in-house by the company’s own designer/designer team, lead by ass. professor Virginijus Urbelis.
Last year, in 2015, Granberg was awarded the prestigious design award for two types of impact- and cut-resistant gloves: Granberg® 9001 and 9002. This year Granberg is the Red Dot Award winner of 2016 for the new Granberg® 5501 glove. The award-winning glove features heavy-duty yet soft impact protection made of black TPU fixed to a cut-resistant Typhoon® glove which provides 360° level 5 cut protection, the highest level of protection according to EN 388.
The success of Granberg’s product development
and product portfolio is a result of the dedication of Granberg’s experienced research and development team and its close customer relationships.
Leading the research & development team is the company’s chief engineer Mr Urbelis who holds a master’s degree in polymers and textiles, and a PhD in Materials Engineering. Working in a dedicated facility for research, development and testing, the team has brought Granberg AS to be the leader in creating intelligent designs, with ultimate ergonomics, and continues to do so, with Granberg AS as the leading manufacturer of gloves with innovative solutions in hand protection.
