Assolombarda, the association of industrialists from the metropolitan city of Milan and the provinces of Lodi, Monza and Brianza and Pavia, aims to recognize local companies for their growth and innovation capabilities with its awards. Prizes will be awarded in the categories of "Sustainability," "Digitalization," "Performance," "Design," and "Responsibility and Culture".
The "Leopoldo Pirelli" prize in the category “Digitalization” was recently awarded to the Italian Datwyler Healthcare Solutions plant based in Pregnana. The company prevailed over hundreds of other applicants with its digitization project. The award-winning project stood out for its collaborative technology, simulations, and employee involvement to optimize a cleanroom process. In particular, virtual reality helped to test the new workflows "live", to optimize them and then to define the room layout and equipment accordingly.
