Geico among companies nominated for Research & Development award for businesses in Brianza


Milan, 23 November 2016. Geico, a world leader in the design and manufacture of automated turnkey vehicle-painting plants, has been nominated in the Research & Development category at the Oscars of entrepreneurship in 2016.

The BtoB Awards are taking place on Thursday 24 November in the superb setting of the Villa Antona Traversi in Meda. The event, founded and organised by Hubnet Communication, involves the top businesses in the Province of Monza and Brianza, Lecco and Como. It aims to highlight and reward examples of excellence in the area.

A highly qualified panel made up of institutions and associations from each category, as well as stand-out personalities, chooses the winning companies and hands out the much sought-after prizes.

Geico won the Next Prize in 2015, dedicated to the new generation of companies, but its first awards were back in 2012 in the Innovation category and the Best to Brianza prize. The company also hosted the 2013 edition of the BtoB Awards at its exclusive headquarters in Cinisello Balsamo, within Laura’s Garden of Thoughts. This year, Geico has been included among the best companies competing for the prestigious award in the Research & Development category.

“Receiving this important nomination means a lot to us: being included among the best companies in the region is a source of pride. We believe in this award, which highlights and rewards excellence in our region; it’s very close to the responsible approach that highlights our way of doing business. Being put up for the Research & Development category is proof of the company’s efforts to seek increasingly cutting-edge solutions.” Ali Reza Arabnia, President and CEO of Geico.
