CTO Ian Roberts is quoted in a Bühler statement as saying that the award reflects the leadership team’s commitment to innovation and sustainability. But more broadly speaking, the award is recognition of the company’s excellence in technology and innovation leadership. Roberts received the European CTO of the Year 2016 award in the “large companies” category.

Since joining Bühler, which is located in the St.GallenBodenseeArea, in 2010, Roberts has been a driver of innovation and technology. “With these initiatives, we are able to create a culture of innovation and entrepreneurs across the company,” he said at the award ceremony. As an example of this, Roberts launched Bühler’s innovation challenge, which builds organisational innovation capability and leverages partnerships with customers, suppliers and universities.

Every year, Bühler invests up to 5 per cent of its turnover in research and development. This leads to innovative products, such as a new generation of high-precision scales with energy savings of over 90 per cent or an energy-efficient pasty dryer.
