SABC Innovation Award 2019


In 2018, SABC launched the Switzerland Innovates Initiative. The Initiative promotes Swiss Innovation in the Chicagoland area through events, networking and information exchange. In connection with the Initiative, the SABC awarded the first Innovation Award to BIG KAISER Precision Tooling Inc. at our annual Christmas Dinner in December 2018.
