There are two core aspects in the R&D management: The first is the need to develop the technology necessary to manufacture the given product, and the second is the need to enhance the production technology in order to improve competition in the market.
Orders received are first considered according to material specifications and transformed into a project aiming at developing a solution. The documented theoretical solution is then subjected to practical research. Next, a prototype is built based on the practical research and once it has been ensured that it offers the desired functionality, the technology development process for the production is successfully completed. As a result of the ongoing R&D processes, the company has now the capability of supplying products and to replace imported alternatives to various markets.
