Pipistrel d.o.o. Ajdovščina stepped ahead of tough competition to be selected for a prestigious Ruban d’Honneur in round two of the European Business Awards sponsored by HSBC. Receiving a Ruban d’Honneur is an impressive achievement and celebrates businesses who demonstrate exceptional performance within their sector. Pipistrel will now compete as a finalist within The UKTI Award for Innovation category and hopefully win the ultimate prize of a European Business Award.

There are the following categories in the competition:

The Infosys Business of the Year Award
The Infosys Business of the Year Award (below 60 Million EUROS)
The RSM International Entrepreneur of the Year Award
The UKTI Award for Innovation
The HSBC Growth Strategy of the Year Award
The Award for Customer Focus
The Award for Corporate Sustainability
The Environmental Awareness Award
The Employer of the Year Award
Chairman’s Selection

Pipistrel was one of only three Slovene companies (alongside BISOL d.o.o, and the Mercator group) to be given a Ruban d’Honneur and will be at the glittering Awards final at The Westin, Paris, on 16th November. The Ruban d’Honneur is awarded to up to ten successful entrants in each category. Judges deliberate to select which individuals and businesses are awarded the Ruban d’Honneur, and it is from the Ruban d’Honneur recipients that the final winner in each category is decided.

Pipistrel d.o.o Ajdovščina is the world’s leading motorglider aircraft designer and producer. Based in Slovenia, it was established in 1987 as the first private aircraft producer in the former Yugoslavia. Production in 2009 grew by 50%, the workforce increased by 10% and 98% of revenues were generated from export markets. Its major innovation launched recently is ‘Taurus-Electro’, the world’s first 2-seater electric propulsion aircraft.

Ivo Boscarol, the general manager of Pipistrel, says:
"Everyone at Pipistrel, me especially, feel very honoured to be chosen as the recipient of the Ruban d’Honneur, one of only three companies from Slovenia to receive one! Pipistrel is a small, family-owned establishment so every success and award, especially one of such large, international scale, is a huge compliment to us. Among other recipients are international companies with many hundred employees. For Pipistrel to be considered worthy to be among them is an enormous compliment and a confirmation that our quest for quality and clean environment is taking us the right way.
The European Business Awards is widely recognised as the showcase for Europe’s most dynamic companies. We’re looking forward to the next and the final round of the competition."

All Ruban d’Honneur recipients will now prepare to appear before a third judging panel of highly regarded academics, heads of state, industrialists, entrepreneurs and media commentators drawn from across the 27 member European States. The interviews will take place at HSBC’s offices in Canary Wharf, London.

Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards says, “To get this far in the Awards programme is a tremendous achievement. The gaze of the European business community is well and truly on the Ruban d’Honneur recipients and Pipistrel demonstrated real talent in The UKTI Award for Innovation category despite what has been a difficult trading period. Together with HSBC we wish Pipistrel every success in this next and final round of the European Business Awards.”

Alan Keir, HSBC Group General Manager and Global Co-Head Commercial Banking, added: “We are delighted to be part of the European Business Awards and our congratulations go to the Ruban d’Honneur recipients who have excelled to get this far.  It is heartening to see that businesses across Europe are flourishing in spite of the recent economic downturn.  I wish all the companies well in the next round of judging and look forward to the Awards final.”

Pipistrel je bilo eno izmed le treh Slovenskih podjetij (poleg Bisol d.o.o. in skupine Mercator), ki je prejelo prestižni Častni trak in je povabljeno na gala končno podelitev v Pariz, 16. Novembra.

o Boscarol, direktor podjetja Pipistrel, pravi:
"Celotna ekipa Pipistrela, še najbolj pa seveda jaz sam, smo zelo počaščeni da smo bili izbrani za prejemnika Častnega Traku kot eno izmed samo treh Slovenskih podjetij ki so dosegla to čast.
Pipistrel je majhno podjetje v družinski lasti, zato nam vsak uspeh ali nagrada, še zlasti takšna z velikim mednarodnim ugledom, pomeni ogromen kompliment. Med drugimi prejemniki so multinacionalke z več tisoč zaposlenimi. Sodniki so mnenja, da je Pipistrel vreden da se uvrsti mednje, kar je za nas velika pohvala in potrditev, da smo z našo filozofijo visoko-kvalitetnih proizvodov in skrbi za okolje na pravi poti.
Tekmovanje European Business Awards je splošno priznan pokazatelj najbolj dinamičnih podjetij Evropske unije. Veselim se že naslednjega kroga in končnega izbora tekmovanja!"


Vsi prejemniki Častnega Traku se bodo sedaj pripravili na tretji krog tekmovanja, ko bodo stopili pred komisijo sodnikov, sestavljeno iz priznanih akademikov, državnih voditeljev, podjetnikov in predstavnikov medijev, izbranih iz 27-ih držav članic Evropske Unije. Pogovori s kandidati bodo potekali na sedežu HSBC v Londonu.

Adrian Tripp, direktor tekmovanja European Business Awards pravi: “Priti tako daleč na tem tekmovanju je neizmeren dosežek. Pogled celotne Evropske poslovne javnosti je usmerjen na dobitnike Častnih Trakov in Pipistrel je prikazal resničen talent v kategoriji UKTI Award for Innovation, kljub temu da to obdobje velja za gospodarsko težavno. Skupaj s HSBC želimo Pipistrelu kar največ uspeha v naslednjem in finalnem krogu tekmovanja European Business Awards.”

Alan Keir, Generalni Manager skupine HSBC in so-predsednik Commercial Banking, je dodal: “Navdušeni smo, da smo lahko del tekmovanja European Business Awards. Tudi z naše strani čestitke prejemnikom Častnih Trakov.  Poživljajoče je videti da podjetništvo cveti po vsej Evropi, ne glede na nedavno krizo. Vsem podjetjem želim mnogo uspeha v naslednjem krogu tekmovanja in se vselim finalnega izbora."
