Research and development, directed by an urge to provide innovative and sustainable technology to the global market, is fundamental to Watreco. R&D is performed both in-house and together with external research institutes and universities. The work is being done in three main categories:
The complex and biomimetic shapes inside Watrecos products demand development also in the production area. Recently, state of the art CAD technology has been adopted for both prototyping and production. This facilitates a direct connection between design, testing and production.
Specific components can be designed for applications in many different fields, as separate products or as part of other products (OEM) in collaboration with the industry.
