Innovation awards

2018 - Prize for Innovation for multi-format clamp stars, the Foire aux Vins de Colmar.

Out of 11 competing companies to be eligible for the innovation prize awarded by EAV/PHR in partnership with the Alsace Chamber of Agriculture, the Cuma federation and the Union of Oenologists,  COSTRAL stood out for these multi-format clamp stars that provide more flexibility in the choice of bottles capable of handling diameters of 62 to 107mm and therefore offering multiple marketing options to wine producers in terms of packaging.

Global business award

2016 - We were nominated for the Grand Prix des Entreprises en Croissance (growing companies) in conjunction with Stone Industrie and Stentz.

As the name suggests, this national award, created in partnership with the Ministry of Economy and Finance, recognises companies that, in recent years, have experienced strong growth.
The Grand Prix aims to "sélectionner des entreprises afin d'encourager l'audace, l'ambition et le leadership dont elles font preuve".

2015 - We were awarded the Prix de l'Entreprise Globale (Global Enterprise Award)"Région Est" (L'Express).

The 3 companies headed by Frédéric Kuhlmann (STONE Industrie, STENTZ and COSTRAL) were chosen to participate in the Entrepreneur of the Year Award 2015, organised nationally by Ernst and Young. This prize highlights the exceptional experience of the business leaders driving growth and competition in the French market. This award recognises the work carried out by Frédéric Kuhlmann and his team in such a short period of time.

Since 2014, we have joined the Excellent Team of BPI France as part of our expansion pathway.

2012 - Costral, represented by Frédéric Kuhlmann, was a member of the French delegation of G20 entrepreneurs in Mexico.

This event brought together 400 business leaders from the 20 most powerful countries on the planet, just days before the heads of state and government summit. COSTRAL, an OSEO Excellence member, focused on export, in 2012 was one of 20 French companies and, as a product designer and manufacturer, represented the only entirely industrial company.

2011 – “COSTRAL putting the planet in a bottle”

We set ourselves apart at the Regional Trophy in the Large Export category, by relying on our capacity for innovation to conquer the globe. This is how COSTRAL, over the years, has made its mark globally, achieving 70% of turnover from exports thanks to new markets such as Australia, the United States followed by China.
