Our R&D Team
We understand innovation as a process, encompassing all stages from an arising question or trend, over the search for ideas and the research and development-process to the start of production.
This process is accompanied by a team of engineers, chemists, biologists, scientists, technologists, and students that brings along the necessary knowledge as well as the proper grasp for future customer needs.
It is our aim to offer sustainable, innovative solution concepts, creating an additional value for our customers. We do not only focus on the product itself, but also like to act as a driving force with a view to the optimization of processes or the establishment of new technologies.
This succeeds thanks to our intensive work in Research & Development, our strong internal teamwork between all departments as well as our investments in quality and reengineering. Thereby, we are able to react to changing market needs as well as to new, challenging product requirements.
At Norafin, we do not only research in-house, but also attach great importance to strong partnerships with research institutes, universities, and business partners of our entire procurement chain. We are always interested in deepening and extending our partner network.
It is our organization’s internal strength combined with our external network that enables us to establish an all-encompassing solution to our customers’ requirements.
Present topics that currently build the center point of our R&D work, containing smart textiles, additive manufacturing, and the optimization of material management in order to preserve resources and to produce sustainably.
