RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

Since the very beginning, we have always striven to be innovative. Pushed the envelope even further. We believe this is the very essence of a company built by idealists. And our goal is to offer our customers the powerful tools to help them push back the limits imposed upon them by winter

This is the reason R&D has always been an important part of our business process. Below are some of the highlights we have accomplished over the years.
