Award news: First, as part of a productive trip to this year's Elmia Subcontractor - the trade fair in Northern Europe if your business is manufacturing - we made the finals for a "plastovation" award in the environmental category. This was our second nomination for an award at Elmia. Trifilon's BioLite unfortunately lost to a recycled PET surf leash and a solar unit made from recycled plastics that captures heat from the sun to warm water. Kudos to them. There's always next year for us. Second, we earned a third place in the "entrepreneur of the future" contest given by investment bank Carnegie and daily newspaper Svenska Dagbladet. That's out of a few hundred possible companies. Great publicity and a big thumbs up for Trifilon's mission and sustainable, lightweight materials.
