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.
To ensure the long-term growth and success of the Group’s activities, our Research & Development focuses on four areas:
The Research & Development units of the Wood and Packaging Divisions depend on the expertise of materials specialists.
Each activity has a dedicated R&D manager in direct contact with the process engineers and the technical and development support staff at each production site.
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.
