We continuously conduct research on innovative products and processes, and develop novel technologies in order to remain the benchmark for both resource efficiency and environmental standards.

We pursue active know-how management, both internally and externally, and consider this the key to our success. We take on the responsibility of educating and continuing to train our researchers in-house, sharing our knowledge within the Group and exploiting the synergy effects that arise from pooling our expertise.

We place great value in long-term, trusted relationships with our customers and suppliers in the field of research too and work closely with universities and scientific institutions.
