Fiden Prices

The FIDEN Prize was endowed in 2000 by Dr Roland Singer in memory of the FIDEN founder members Arthur Frommholz, BLITZ-BLaNK, Munich, and KR Wilhelm Singer, ASSA Group Vienna.

The Prize is awarded to individuals who have rendered outstanding services for the industrial cleaning industry in Europe, whether through their entrepreneurial or political commitment, or through their contribution to the creation of a business and political environment especially benefitting the cleaning industry. FIDEN is proud to count a large number of well-known figures among the winners of this prize.
