Programat prize competition: these are the winners!
The winners of the “40 Years of Programat Technology“ prize competition are out now. The first prize - a P710 SE Programat special edition furnace - goes to Lutz Brinkmann from Germany. He bought a P1 in 1976 and the furnace has been operational ever since. In total, 563 dental technicians from all over the world entered the competition.
One of the first of his brand
His vintage furnace is one of the first models of the Programat brand brought to the market. Lutz Brinkmann summarized his experience with this brand: "For me, Programat is synonymous with an easy, clear and straightforward operation."
Two more prizes
Two more participants in the competition had good reason to cheer: The representatives congratulated in her absence Christina Todorova from Bulgaria, for having won the second prize and Thomas Ehlik from Germany for the third prize. The second-prize winner received an iPad mini 2 and Thomas Ehlik received a wrist watch. The furnaces of these two prize winners also date back to the first Programat generation.
