The manufacturer of specialist geosynthetic products received the award in the “Innovation Management” category
On June 26th, 2017, during the 7th Brazilian Congress of Innovation, the National Confederation of Industry (CNI) and the Brazilian Micro and Small Business Support Service (SEBRAE), announced the result of the National Innovation Award 2016/17.
From 4000 companies, BMD Textiles, the specialist geosynthetic manufacturing subsidiary of Maccaferri do Brasil, won the award for the category “Innovation Management”, which is considered the most prestigious.
This award is assigned to companies that are able to create an environment where innovation can be successfully generated and thrive. This is made possible by the implementation of innovative management processes, methods, techniques and tools. The evaluation of this category identifies the level of innovation capacity and its delivery of effective results for the organisation.
We congratulate BMD textiles for this achievement and for standing out in the world of innovation!
BMD Textiles operates in the Camaçari industrial area in the North-Eastern Bahia state. The company produces industrial textiles used as feed materials in the manufacture of other synthetic fabrics. Quality products, advanced technology, intelligent services and innovative solutions have always been the key differentiators of BMD. In 2007, BMD was acquired by Maccaferri. With this acquisition, Maccaferri increased its production capacity of geogrids (used for soil reinforcement) in Brazil and was able to provide products for other segments, such as fish farming, agriculture, civil construction, safety clothing and textiles for the footwear industry.
