Factory of the Year 2020
The Handl Tyrol ham production facility wins the renowned industrial building award
The ham production facility in Haiming, which was designed by ATP Innsbruck for Handl Tyrol, has been named “Factory of the Year 2020”. In addition to this, the facility was also honored as a “Smart Factory” in the category “digitalization”. The jury particularly appreciated the holistic and comprehensive digitalization concept and the clarity and modernity of the production building.
The modern, linear, and fully automatic facility for the manufacture of high-quality ham products underlines the sense of tradition of the Tyrolean company. The complex incorporates a production building and a two-story social and technical block. It meets IFS (International Food Standards) and USDA (US Department of Agriculture) guidelines, which enabled Handl Tyrol to not only create an innovative, state-of the-art production facility, but also open up better export opportunities in new markets. The ATP-led interdisciplinary design process with BIM was a prerequisite for the planning of the ecologically and economically sustainable structure.
