Yet another milestone: Hansgrohe SE opens a new research and development lab
Hansgrohe SE continues to focus on and invest in its facilities in Germany. Today, the company inaugurated its new research and development lab at its headquarters in Schiltach in Germany’s South West. “Innovative environments generate innovative solutions”, says Richard Grohe, Deputy Chairman of Executive Board at Hansgrohe SE. This is why the new R&D lab was built on the existing factory premises. “Proximity to production facilities guarantees more efficient processes”, he adds. The Black Forest-based mixer and shower manufacturer invested a total of EUR 4.5 million. The building was completed in a year.
With the lab, the company has concentrated all areas of R&D under one roof, in a facility offering some 1,600 square metres of space. “We now have significantly more test beds with water, where a larger number of staff members can work at the same time”, reports Richard Grohe.
