German news channel picks Ensinger as "Hidden Champion 2015"

On 19 November the German news channel n-tv picked out, for what is now the fifth time, the hidden champions among Germany's small- and medium-sized companies.

With insulbar RE, plastics specialist Ensinger won 1st place in the category of sustainability.   

The prize is aimed at owner-managed companies who, with their work, have rendered particularly outstanding services to the success of the German economy. The companies honoured with the award have a special regard for the concept of sustainability. Just like Ensinger with the insulbar RE insulating profile.

insulbar RE insulating profiles aid the thermal separation of metal windows, doors and façades. They are made from unmixed recycled polyamide.

These insulating bars are used for the thermal separation of metal window, façade and door constructions, and are made of 100 per cent recycled plastic. This brings about a critical improvement in the life cycle assessment of these systems. The unmixed recycled polyamide undergoes, to this end, an upcycling process which places its properties on a par with those of new material. The consumption of fossil-based resources drops by 89 percent, CO2 emissions by 84 percent and water consumption by 32 percent. By using recycled profiles, a reduction of over 12,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide can be achieved every year. This roughly corresponds to the weight of Paris's Eiffel tower together with its concrete foundations.

Frank Killinger, Head of Sales for the company's insulbar division, and Marnie Röder, who is responsible for marketing this product line, took receipt of the award during a ceremony in Frankfurt am Main. "Nowadays one can no longer imagine metal windows and façade systems without insulating bars like our insulbar profiles", says Frank Killinger. "With insulbar RE, we are now going one step further. Ensinger is extending the useful life of the plastic by an additional life cycle and thereby engaging actively in environmental and climate protection. And we are doing this with a product which is completely hidden in the window frame and has a 'secret' impact."
