The basis for innovation: research and development

Dear Sir or Madam,

You can't reinvent the wheel completely, but at least optimizations are usually possible with every product. This is especially true for the auxiliary industry. How research and development can play their part here and to what extent the current trend of increasing digitalization influences this, you can find out in our current Topic of the Month October.

Have a week full of new developments,

Nadine Lormis
