ID LAB: Knauf Industries’ innovation laboratory
Our strategic motivation: to develop the innovation spirit of our teams, to innovate to bring added value to our customers and to be recognized as an innovative company by the market.
To achieve our goals, we created ID Lab, our Innovation and Development Lab.
A first alveolar foam lab is based in Ungersheim (68) to provide essential functions such as design, prototyping and testing. We deploy our skills and equipment to generate value-added solutions and identify new growth segments, business models and technologies.
A second Lab exists at La Bernerie en Retz (44), specialized in thermoforming and injection.
Beyond our central Lab, we develop Labs internationally. The goal is to combine the agility of a local structure with the strength of an international group, all Labs being connected and challenging their ideas and concepts.
ID Lab is everywhere within Knauf Industries. In France, Spain, Russia, Poland, Brazil … A cosmopolitan team!
Our experts and engineers close to our customers are specialized in markets, materials or technologies.
