In the category “Technological Innovation”, Jüke came out of top over its competitors with the “CHRONECT Quantos” project, an automated system for environmental analysis, food control, drug development, drug analysis and the handling of toxic or expensive substances in the laboratory. Heinrich Jürgens, owner and managing director of Jüke Systemtechnik, received the award on Monday, 25 November 2019 from the Minister for Economic Affairs, Innovation, Digitization and Energy of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia, Prof. Dr. Andreas Pinkwart, at a ceremony.
For the first time, the Ministry honored the best ideas with the “Innovation Prize for Craftsmanship” of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia. The prize of 10,000 euros is awarded to an outstanding company.
Jüke is known for innovative products and processes in analytical technology that are developed and produced on behalf of customers. “We make our customers fit for the future and give them a competitive advantage in the market.”, Martin Hovestadt, also owner and managing director of Jüke, outlines the clear objectives for the implementation of projects.
CHRONECT Quantos is a special development. “We have developed this project together with experts from Axel Semrau GmbH (sales partner) and scientists from the Institute for Energy- und Environmental Technology (IUTA) and successfully launched the result on the market after only two years,” explains Jürgens. For the Innovation Prize not only the high innovation degree, a trend-setting technology and the solid solution were important, but also the successful market entrance was crucial.
