UNVI awarded in the 3rd Innovation and Design Awards of Galicia 2022

This past Tuesday, December 20th 2022, UNVI has attended the III Galician Innovation and Design Awards, being the winner in the “Design – Company” category and finalist in the “Innovation – Large Company” category. They are awards organized by the Galician Innovation Agency (GAIN) and the Xunta de Galicia (Regional Government), both represented by Mr Francisco Conde, First Vice President and Minister of Industry and Innovation in Galicia, and Mrs Patricia Argerey, GAIN’s Directrice.
During the event it was shown the great talent in the fields of innovation and design that Galicia generates from within and that it exports, both at the professional level who have succeed abroad as well as the companies’ exports
The award was collected by the UNVI team, represented by the Director of Engineering, Eva Legido, the Engineering Director Deputy, Miguel Outeiriño, the Product Manager, Andrés Caride, and the Commercial Director, Carlos Rivo.
In the speech we recall our firm commitment to design with a concept of a modular bus range, reflecting the identity of our company. We understand design as a duty of adaptability to the population, the ecosystem and the need for a new mobility model.
We mention all the support of the Pérez Rumbao Group to which we belong, and that this 2022 we celebrate the Centenary, firmly supporting UNVI as a generator of innovation, design and development of buses. This was clearly backed by the former Group Pérez Rumbao’s presidents Mr. Emilio Pérez Nieto and Mr. José Ramón Pérez Nieto.
Finally, we remember the great contribution of our colleague Iago Álvarez, who suddenly left us this year, and who contributed greatly to the design of this family of products for which we have been awarded, as well as the electric bus project.
