R&D Team as a Driver for Innovation
Infiana’s innovative film and process solutions have garnered multiple honors, most recently the TOP 100 and German Enterprise Awards. The foundation for this success is Infiana’s Innovation Team, whose 25-strong combination of application engineers and developers continuously explores emerging trends, materials, technologies, and suppliers, and exchanges knowledge and best practices with research centers and start-ups alike. The most essential part of process and production innovation at Infiana, however, is still the company’s open, ongoing dialogue with its customers.
