Research & Development is at the heart of our company: it is integrated into business processes throughout Teijin Aramid. Our R&D specialists work closely together with people from other disciplines, such as manufacturing, business incubation and sales & marketing, in order to further enhance our own production processes, to improve existing products and to accelerate product innovation.
At the same time, Teijin Aramid R&D cooperates intensively with knowledge institutes, universities, contract laboratories, specialized companies and, naturally, with our customers. These close connections with both internal and external partners enable us to stay ahead of new market developments and demands and to proactively come up with new products and solutions. That’s how we keep our position as an innovative leader in the aramid market.
Take a look at how this type of open innovation leads to successful developments and sustainable solutions along the value chain.
R&D is crucial to our process and product innovation – especially in the long term. That’s why we invest 5% of our turnover in R&D. Many customers view us as a leader in product development, and tell us that it’s one of the reasons they value their partnerships with us.
