LONDON—Linde Material Handling has been awarded the Red Dot Design award from an international panel of experts.
Linde received the award for its H80/1100 diesel truck, which has a load capacity of eight tons. According to the panel, the truck’s ergonomic design, precision operation and low operational noise led to the award.
The panel examines and tests projects submitted for the Red Dot Design award, judging them on innovation, functionality, ergonomics, service life and environmental compatibility. This year, the panel judged 3,203 products from 51 countries and awarded prizes to 676 of them. The Red Dot Design award was founded in 1955 by Dr. Peter Zec.
Linde also won the award in 2005 for its T20 electric lift truck SP-T24 SP (best of the best); in 2006 for the H100-H180 diesel and LPG truck and in 2007 for the E12-E20 electric lift truck and the K combination truck.
