We are an innovation-oriented company. Research & development and the resulting innovations are the basis for our economic success and our leading market position. From this knowledge, we continuously identify the relevant challenges, technologies, topics and trends to set our goals and plan our future. We want to assert ourselves as a knowledge-based company at the forefront of global competition.
Our innovation strategy is an important part of our corporate strategy where we define concrete measures and steps to realize our vision and reach our goals. Cooperation with partners from science and industry is just as much a core element as the qualification of our employees and the creation of optimal conditions for motivated research teams.
We apply recognised QM- and innovation management methods to generate ideas and to make them come true in R&D projects. We carry out these projects independently or together with national/international partners in funding programmes. Our R&D portfolio ranges from basic research to applied research and product development.
Our R&D projects lead to innovative products for our customers (services, goods) and to innovative corporate processes making our vision come true.
