Nespoli Deutschland receives TOP 100 award

Nespoli Deutschland received the TOP 100 award at the 26th edition of the innovation contest.

The award was given on 28th of June in Frankfurt by the popular TV journalist Ranga Yogeshwar and by Prof. Dr. Nikolaus Franke, the scientific head of the contest. TOP 100 assesses annually, in a scientific way, the innovation management of medium-sized enterprises and the resulting innovation success. In this independent process, Nespoli convinced especially in the category „innovation fostering top management“.

Nespoli Deutschland is part of the Nespoli Group, the leading designer and manufacturer of paint tools, paint sprays and cleaning tools in Europe. Innovation driver behind the new products is Alessandro Nespoli, who is heading the family-owned company in the third generation and who creates a perfect environment for the development of new ideas. Inspiration for new tools evolves from the sales department, contacts with do-it-yourself stores, professional craftsmen and paint manufacturers. The company owns the highest number (over 60) of registered patents in the paint accessory industry.

One of the most important recent innovations is RollMatic®, a paint roller that automatically releases the roller sleeve from the roller handle. The roller can be stored in the freshbox without rinsing and remains ready to paint for several weeks. In this way, the painter can work faster and cleaner. A similar innovation exists for paint brushes: Freshbox48®; this box was developed to keep the paint brush moist during breaks. Roller sleeves with TeflonTM surface protector are very popular both in the DIY as in the PRO market: The surface protector guarantees a more efficient usage of the paint and avoids clogging of the fabric fibers. LaserTouch® wooden grips with anti-slip area, AirTouch® handles with integrated aircushion to avoid blisters as well as EasyLiner® for profiling without masking tape are other innovations by Nespoli.

„Innovation has always been one of the core competences of Nespoli Group. We are very proud of receiving the official appreciation by TOP 100 award. It encourages us even more to carry on and develop new ideas and innovative tools“, says Bert Bergfeld, Managing Director of Nespoli Deutschland.
