FACC Christmas Party 2018: The team award Leonardo was presented for the 5th time.


A unique evening with many highlights - the FACC Christmas party has one more been a great success.

Together with 1.500 FACC employees, we celebrated a great Christmas party in the Rieder Messehalle on 24 November 2018. The highlight of the evening was the presentation of the innovation team award “Leonardo". Each year since 2014, FACC has honored the commitment, competence, know-how and passion of the FACC crew with the group-wide innovation team award. This year, the "Six Sigma - Success with System" team was selected as the winner of the Leonardo. The team has achieved high savings by applying the 6S methodology across all areas of the company.

 Our developments and novel solutions offer added value in a wide range of areas to customers, partners and the FACC crew around the world - from sustainability to efficiency. Such achievements would not be possible without a highly motivated, innovative and qualified crew. It is precisely this 'FACC DNA' which gives us a competitive edge that contributes to the strong development of FACC. With the Leonardo team award, we wish to put the spotlight on the know-how and skills of our employees and, above all, on the FACC values. As in previous years, we have once again received submissions of the highest quality which impressively demonstrate the innovative strength of our crew and enable us to stay one step ahead of our competitors on the market. This is something we can truly be proud of.
