We have always been highly committed to this sector, with 12% of the Group’s employees and around 5% of annual turnover channelled into R&D work. Our research scientists work within a global network comprising 28 centres, with our Corporate Research Centre in Milan acting as a hub to coordinate the activities of all the other centres and as a central analysis laboratory. The centres, all equipped with cutting-edge equipment, collaborate continuously with universities and scientific and industrial research institutes.
The Research & Development laboratories also provide support for our Technical Services Division to help provide solutions for even the most complex requests from our clients. Working alongside these centres are our Quality Control laboratories, which are present in all the Group’s production facilities.
