Having listened to the pitches, the audience opted for Bronkhorst High-Tech. The Achterhoek-based company was unanimously chosen as the winner by both the professional jury and the audience members. The professional jury spoke highly of Bronkhorst. ‘Bronkhorst doesn't just talk about corporate social responsibility, it really lives up to the ideal. The company also involves its suppliers in the latest developments from an early stage, and shares its roadmap with them. The company has a real can-do attitude – instead of dwelling on new developments, they simply put them into production and make adjustments where necessary. It's an iterative process that obviously requires investments, but it gets quick results. Finally, they always honour their agreements. All those factors combine to build a strong sense of mutual trust.'
