Centres of expertise

Every year scmgroup invests at least 7% of its turnover in research and development, technology and know-how. A significant figure to offer customers high performance solutions which set the technological benchmark for the market.

Applied development of new products is guaranteed by the individual divisions and technological units.
The use of an advanced PLM (Product LifeCycle Management) system allows the rationalisation of design through a rigorous process for product development and the identification of shared functional platforms and modules.

Applied development of new products relies on centralised centres of expertise:
