ROI Industry 4.0 Awards China - powered by Ringier

Welcome to 5 new entrants to the Industrial Hall of Fame

The ROI Industry 4.0 Awards have been carried out in Germany since 2013 to honor industry 4.0 solutions in the manufacturing industry. The target group of the award are producing companies who have realized an industry 4.0 like use case in their production system, either as a whole or within a defined pilot section. To honor industrial progress in China, in 2017 ROI & ringierevents bring the Awards to China.

Why an award?

Engineers and Operators are humble. Every day they create progress for society, but rarely talk about it. And they are even more rarely being talked about. The awards here aim to improve this. To give praise and recognition to common people who work hard every day to advance industrial progress and create higher living standards for all of us. Plus, winning the award builds high brand reputation, association with quality and product superiority, and is a strong proof towards your customers for your power to innovate.

What are the Awards criteria?

The evaluation criteria are level of innovation, economic efficiency, benefits for customers, employees and company, and evident practicality.


Decided it is. In total, 30 companies had signed up for the competition, 15 applications were examined in detail, and on-site visits were carried out to a short list of 6. We aimed at filtering down to 3, and failed. For good. Say hello to the 5 Winners of the ROI Industry 4.0 Awards Winner China. To hear the full story - and what makes each case so special - apply here to attend the Global Smart Factory Summit Shanghai on 17th of October.

Impressions from the winner conference 2017

150+ industry elites gathered on the 17th of October in Shanghai to hear about the why – and how – 5 companies managed to win an Award in the 2017 round of the ROI Industry 4.0 Awards China.

And answers they got. On all levels. Case descriptions? Check. Industry 4.0 upgrade roadmap? Check. And with it a common theme emerged. Not only were the case descriptions impressive in their own right – it also became clear that they are all nested within strategy roadmaps which span years, not months. Outstanding results don’t come overnight, they are the result of mindful planning and execution. And execute they did.

You might think, what was in it for the companies? In short: from all participants I heard the same feedback: That by hearing about the journey of others, in a completely different situation, they were able to ‘look beyond the horizon’, get inspirations for point of views they never dare to take themselves, and ultimately get a boost of inspiration for where their own journey might go next.
