Big names, gripping impulses, exciting innovations: On Friday, November 4th, the prestigious ‘Innovator of the Year’ business award was presented for the sixth time, for the first time in Berlin, Germany.

300 guests came together to celebrate and experience innovation over three days. World-famous sliding table saw pioneer Altendorf GmbH, with its worldwide unique HAND GUARD safety assistance system for sliding table saws, was awarded ‘Innovator of the Year 2022’.

The world market leader for the manufacture of premium sliding table saws can now call itself Innovator of the Year 2022. The award was presented, appropriately enough, by Professor Hermann Simon, author of the standard work first published in 2007 ‘Hidden Champions of the 21st Century. The Success Strategies of Unknown World Market Leaders.
