R&D INNOVATIONS

Strategy

Innovation lies at the core of everything the Gascogne Group does.

A dedicated R&D unit in each division: Innovation Process Monitoring Design

The Group’s long-term success and growth depend on the development of innovative products with high added value. To reach this objective, the Gascogne Group’s executive management team has undertaken a major investment plan to modernise and renew its production tools and create a Research & Development unit in each of its two divisions.

These units, which are exclusively focused on R&D and innovation projects, work on enhancing our product ranges and manufacturing processes in close cooperation with the General Management and the Industrial and Sales & Marketing Departments for the Wood & Packaging Divisions.

The Wood Division also has design expertise integrated into its R&D unit to anticipate market needs and expectations.

New laboratories with cutting-edge technology was inaugurated in 2015 in each of the Group’s divisions. These laboratories were designed as collaborative spaces dedicated to customer service and innovation.
