Italian President awards Flash Battery top prize for innovation


The President of the Republic of Italy, Sergio Mattarella, has awarded the prestigious “Premio dei Premi” prize for innovation to Flash Battery CEO Marco Righi.

The award, which was presented via via video stream, adds the finishing touches to an exciting 12 months for Flash Battery. Earlier this year, the firm recognised for the manufacture of lithium batteries for industrial machinery and electric vehicles, was also recognised as the “Best Company Under 40” in the Emilia-Romagna region and awarded the Deloitte prize as “Best Managed Company”. Just a few weeks ago, it also listed 58th in the rankings of 400 Italian companies recognised as “Champions of Growth” for the 2016-2019 period, a list curated by the Istituto Tedesco Qualità e Finanza and La Repubblica.

“We are very pleased, and very proud to receive these awards,” said Marco Righi, “especially the ‘Premio dei Premi’, both for the honour of meeting the President, and for the motivations that led the jury to award us this extraordinary recognition.”

According to the jury statement, Flash Battery was recognised for the company’s investments in research and innovation for the development of cutting-edge, competitive technology for a world market in constant, rapid evolution.

“These motivations get right to the heart of our business, closely tied to the research being worked on by so many of our young employees and that has been the key to everything we’ve built during this period of growth,” said Righi.
