Innovations for the machinery safety of tomorrow
– worldwide in six plants
With a staff of more than 100 people working at six plants worldwide, our Research & Development (R&D) department is constantly translating new ideas into marketable products. This is where the stimuli and the products, constituting the basis of the innovation leadership of the Schmersal Group on the market, come to life.
The R&D department is divided into three specialised fields:
In addition to the central Research & Development based at the Wuppertal headquarters, the Schmersal Group has five more development plants (Wettenberg, Mühldorf, Bergisch Gladbach, Boituva/Brazil und Shanghai/China). All of these sites use the same databases, tools and organisational structures. In this way, we make sure that the available competences are optimally used during each and every development project – for the benefit of the customer.
