R&D expertise

Two levels of R&D to combine global vision with empowered local R&D units

Research and development medical

The organisation is designed to facilitate cooperation and information sharing at the Group level, and to drive innovation for our strategic markets.

The research centers are at the disposal of all entities within their sphere of excellence:

  • Metallurgy in Lens (France),
  • Rubber in Jincheon (South Korea),
  • Cross-linked Materials and Computer modeling in Lyon (France), and
  • Thermoplastic Materials and Extrusion Processes in Nuremberg (Germany).

The development networks define the programs in close relationship with the marketing teams in order to ensure that developments reflect client expectations.

The current development is handled by centers specialized by product or technology. We also have application centers to test and compare cable performance in real service conditions. These trials form the basis of fruitful technical discussions with our clients.
