Quality and innovation/Research & Development/Research central to our mission

A philosophy underpinning our corporate strategy

Our pioneering spirit guides our business choices to ensure innovation in the development of our activities. Research and Innovation are core values at DIRICKX.

The aim of Research and Innovation within the DIRICKX Group is to make sure that we are always aware of our customers' requirements, not only offering them innovative solutions but also anticipating their future needs.
The innovation process involves all company members. Each and every one of us can contribute ideas for innovation, keeping the pioneering spirit of the DIRICKX Group alive.



Financial investment on the rise

Innovation is now intensive. This major development can be seen in the progression from R&D (Research and Development) to RID (Research - Innovation - Development).
Innovation activities are not just those linked to R&D and Marketing, they concern all company businesses and products (gate innovation, fence innovation, security innovation, etc.). The innovation strategy can be seen as a collective ability to recreate sources of value and expertise on an ongoing basis.

Innovation is not easy, but it is vital. The world is changing at a rapid pace and our economic environments along with it. Product lifecycles are becoming shorter. One thing is certain: change is here to stay. We must constantly adapt and innovate with our products and services, production processes and organisation.

Innovation must serve our corporate strategy.
