MOBBIT earns Thor award for innovator of the year

31 January 2020

Bouwunie, the construction sector organisation in Flanders, hands out several awards every year at the Golden Brick gala. The event is now in its 23rd edition and has become the largest event in the Flemish construction sector.

For the third year in a row, three additional prizes were awarded during the gala on the 31st of January: the Thor awards for best innovator, best motivator and best initiator, as extra incentives for continued enthusiasm and a focus on the future.

MOBBIT was voted ‘construction company that dares to innovate’ and won the Thor Award for the most innovative construction company. Ronny Reygel and Annemie Achten proudly accepted the coveted statue that was specially designed and made for the occasion by the artist Geert Corneillie. “We developed the MOBBIT as an application for cleaning home ventilation ducts. Instead of using a brush, the system ‘mops’ the ventilation ducts with soapy water and detergent,” says Ronny. The company is currently exploring new markets and looking for distributors in Europe. “We’re searching for national/local partners who specialise in ventilation products, have physical stocks and a dedicated technical sales team. On our end, we offer support for our partners, with new products and marketing and sales support tools,” Ronny goes on to explain.

The other winners were WOEMA from De Pinte as the best newcomer and Persyn from Zwevegem for the best staff policy. At this 23rd edition, the Golden Brick, an award for a personality, organisation or institution that is extremely committed to the construction sector, went to WTCB (the Scientific and Technical Construction Centre of the Belgian Building Research Institute).
