Logo Red Dot Design Award

Red Dot Design Award

The jury has decided: Our electric stacker truck ERD 220i is among the best of the best in the supreme discipline of product design at the Red Dot Award 2021.

On the road to victory: Our ERD 220i wins in the product design category.
Since 1955, the Red Dot Award: Product Design has annually selected the world's best and most innovative products from over 60 countries in around 50 categories. The desired prize is awarded exclusively to products that clearly stand out in the market through their groundbreaking design. We are proud that our ERD 220i electric pallet stacker was able to convince the jury in 2021.

It is well known that the critical jury of the Red Dot Award, consisting of around 50 international experts, is not easy to convince. But when a product combines groundbreaking design and a high level of innovation, the way to the top of the podium gets pretty short. The evaluation criteria include product characteristics such as degree of innovation, functionality, ergonomics or ecological compatibility.

Here, the ERD 220i scores in many respects: Compact design paired with advanced technology and maximum functionality make him an exemplary pioneer in the stacker truck segment. Thanks to its specially designed chassis contour, it is predestined for fast and safe ramp travel. Optimum energy efficiency is ensured by a fully integrated lithium-ion battery, while the convenience charging function guarantees fast and flexible charging processes. The vehicle concept is rounded off by intuitive user guidance and high safety standards. Successful all around, as the jury also finds!

True to the Red Dot Award motto "In search of good design and innovation" we look forward to the creative gathering at Red Dot Design Week from June 21st to 25th 2021, where this year's winners will be honored and celebrated online or on site.

iF Design Award

IF Design Award

The largest iF jury ever has chosen creative winners from app to Z-Wave. We are happy that our electric high lift truck ERC 216 convinced the jury in the category automobiles and vehicles and receives the renowned iF Design Award 2021.

Our winner in the middle distance: iF Design Award for the ERC 216.
Bold ideas, pioneering trends and an optimistic view of the future: Almost 10.000 submissions from 52 countries reached this year's jury of the iF Design Award, which will again award outstanding achievements in design in 2021 under the motto "The CreatiFe Power of Design". We are delighted about the victory of our electric pallet stacker ERC 216 in the category product design automobiles and vehicles.

In addition to maximum manoeuvrability, the vehicle design of the ERC 216 impresses with its ability to be used fast and flexible as a ride-on stacker with highest comfort for the operator. Large loads are transported economically especially over medium distances or on higher racking levels thanks to the electronically controlled, powerful lift motor and sophisticated ergonomics. The truck design is rounded off by forward-looking assistance systems and high safety standards for accident-free and productive work.

For the first time, the iF jury, consisting of renowned design experts, selected the winners in a purely digital process spread over three jury days. 98 jurors from 21 nations not only praised the high design quality of the submissions, but also the fascinating diversity and the handling of topical issues.

Due to the pandemic, the award winners will be celebrated as part of a worldwide digital award campaign, as they were last year. The campaign will start on 10 May 2021, the day of the actual award ceremony. All winning entries will be presented in the iF World Design Guide and the new iF Design App.

TFG320

On the move: The Pallet Champion 2021.

With a handling performance of impressive 146 pallets per hour, our LPG forklift TFG 320s not only outperforms its hydrostatic equivalent in the VerkehrsRundschau test, but also all forklifts tested over the past 24 months.

Clear winner: Our TFG 320s LPG forklift beats them all.

Based on the established forklift tests of the VerkehrsRundschau, the German weekly magazine for freight forwarding, transport and logistics, the forklift with the highest turnover is awarded with the title "Pallet Champion" every two years. This time, our LPG forklift TFG 320s receives the title. Justifiably, because the compact combustion forklift impressively demonstrated its performance twice.

Under real conditions, the VerkehrsRundschau test team challenged two of our hydrostatic forklifts to a test of strength on a specially constructed test course. For evaluation purposes, a comparative performance check was carried out for loading and unloading a semi-trailer with 32 Euro pallets, with both trucks completing the course in the high-performance setting. While the diesel front loader DFG 316s completed the task in 29:37 minutes at consumption costs of 1.11 €, the TFG 320s needed only 26:16 minutes at low consumption costs of 0.82 € and thus emerged as the winner from this duel.

In addition, the VerkehrsRundschau tested a large number of other forklifts over the past 24 months with regard to their handling performance. A total of 17 criteria were considered, such as working behaviour, steering, workplace or energy management. Also in comparison with all other test vehicles, the TFG 320s convinced as the winner with a handling performance of 146 pallets per hour. Congratulations!
