Innovation is an integral part of our company's DNA. In 1952, we developed the first folding bellows for use in the transport industry. In 1969, it was our silicone-metal connections that have proved their worth under long-term heavy-duty conditions. And in 2014, our continuously tunable laser C-WAVE received the Prism Award. The innovative resourcefulness of our employees has resulted in more than 200 patented inventions and has continually opened up new fields of business to us.
Whether it's new elastomer compounds, new developments in millimeter wave technology or innovative bus concepts for new urban applications – in our various research activities we work closely together with renowned research institutes such as the Fraunhofer Insitutes IPM and IVI. In addition, we take part in a wide range of European Union research projects – on the one hand to share our expertise and on the other to be able to exchange the latest news concerning new developments. In all our research efforts, we are aiming to provide people with a genuine added value.
