A small Napier engineering company has been selected as one of only four worldwide finalists for one of the steel industry’s most coveted award, the Swedish Steel Prize.
HT Engineering faces off against the likes of harvester giant Deere & Company and Sweden’s Sweco Structures on November 17 in Stockholm after being chosen as a finalist from a record number of entries from 20 countries
The Swedish Steel Prize is open to anyone who has developed a product that includes Advanced High Strength steels, as well as construction and wear-resistant steels or a method that expands the field of application for these steels.
It is an annual prize aimed at inspiring, encouraging, and disseminating knowledge about High Strength Steel and the possibilities for developing lighter, safer, and more environmentally friendly products.
The jury selected innovations for agriculture and occupational safety, along with an arena construction project as finalists for the NZ$10,000 scholarship and six months support from the SSAB marketing and product development team.
