    Alfa-Plam has won an award in a competition organised by the World Intellectual Property Organisation, in the protected industrial design category, for the Commo 21 product. The following statement was issued with the results of the competition published on the website of the Intellectual Property Office of the Republic of Serbia:

    “By the decision of the committee, the winner in the category for legal entities for a registered industrial design – the WIPO IP Enterprise Trophy, is the company Alfa-Plam a.d. from Vranje, for the industrial design of the central heating pellet stove known on the market under the commercial name Commo 21, and which is protected under international design no. DM082500 in the territories of: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Belgium, Denmark, Estonia, Greece, Netherlands, Croatia, Italy, Luxembourg, Macedonia, Moldova, Poland, Republic of Romania, Slovenia, Turkey, Ukraine, France, Montenegro, Spain and Switzerland. Considering that pellet fuel is made from woody mass that has a high calorific value, that it is easy to use, that only a small amount of ash is created during combustion, and that is a renewable energy source, the significance of the manufacturing of pellet stoves is unquestionable. In addition to the above, the pellet market in Serbia is expanding, and the Commo 21 is Alfa-Plam’s best-selling central heating pellet stove in Serbia. The stove has been in production for four years. Market demand is continually increasing. There are huge opportunities for conquering new and the most demanding markets, and for creating new jobs. Dragan Zafirović, the author of the design, has received many recognitions for his outstanding contribution to the organisation of production and to increasing exports and profits. From all the foregoing, it is clear that this industrial design fulfils all the criteria for the award: protection abroad has been obtained for it in the territories of the aforementioned European countries, it has a specific, practical use and market potential, and it also contributes to increasing exports and improving quality of life”.
