In 2010, the Straumann Annual Report once more received the prestigious HarbourClub BILANZ award for the best annual report in Switzerland for value reporting – outranking many of the world’s largest companies. This recognizes our efforts to provide stakeholders with in-depth, transparent and accurate reporting.
Our Annual Report 2009 was also awarded the reddot award for communication design, and our 2010 report was also nominated for the German Design Award.
Under the aegis of the Deutsche Gesundheitshilfe e.V., the Health Media Award is conferred for the best achievements in the field of health communication. In 2011 at the Award Ceremony in Cologne, Straumann was among the winners in the Patient Communication category, taking 1st place for special achievements in the field of patient information with our 3:1 illustration model.
A part of our digital workflow, the Straumann® CARES® Scan CS2 scanner is one of our most recent product innovations. Its outstanding design was created by the Schlagheck Design industrial design team and has now been acknowledged by the jury of the internationally renowned reddot design award. By means of its white, high-gloss housing, the product creates positive associations to tooth shape and enamel.
Straumann is the only dental company to have twice received the prestigious Medical Technology Device of the Year Award bestowed by Frost & Sullivan for best practice in innovation: for the SLActive® implant surface (2005) and the Roxolid® implant material (2009). Also, the Straumann thermoplastic drill template won the prestigious 2007 Medical Design Excellence Award (MDEA).
