WACKER Takes a Systematic Approach to Innovation
Before we start a new project, we scrutinize it in terms of customer benefits, sales potential, profitability and technology position. After all, it takes more than just a good idea to set up an efficient process and provide you with a marketable product.
Our R&D Activities Focus on Two Key Areas: Process Innovations and Product Innovations
In making product innovations, we focus on developing new products and enhancing existing ones – paying close attention to specific customer applications at all times. We explore how we can achieve the best technological solution to ensure your commercial success.
Our process innovations enable us to continually optimize our production methods, which in turn lowers the cost of making our products. Our customers and employees kick-start a great many ideas for process optimization. What is invaluable is knowledge transfer between three distinct groups: you, the customers that use our products, the distributors that market them, and the WACKER research teams that develop them.
