R&D

In order to become not only a consuming but a producing society, and to be able to differentiate from others in this concern, an economy policy that is based on research and development has to be applied.

For this reason, research and development form not only part of our management strategy – research and development   a r e   our strategy.

The aim of our R&D department is continuous innovation. In order to get into the leadership position in our sector, the department’s focus is put on continuous research activity. In this context, our company is busy in order to develop new products and formulations that comply with the standards, and improve the already existing ones, by means of keeping itself informed in detail on any developments in terms of its customers’ requirements.

Aiming at fulfilling our customer requirements, and at developing new products, our plant has a Coperion brand extruders (model ZSK26 – ZSK 40) available for sample production as well as technical developments
