The two latest compactor series from Hamm – the HC CompactLine series and the HC series – were recently awarded the Good Design Award 2022 by the Chicago Athenaeum.

“We have been harmonizing ergonomics, functionality, and aesthetics for over 30 years; for us, not just pure performance, but also the health of the operator and ease of handling are right at the top of the agenda,” says Dr. Axel Römer, Head of Research and Development at Hamm.

This brings the number of awards for successful products and developments received by Hamm since 1996 to 40.

Two awards in the Industrial category

The two latest compactor series in the Hamm portfolio received awards in the Industrial category. The renowned design award has been presented for 75 years and is one of the world’s most important awards for ground-breaking design.
