Executing digital innovation.

Inspired by the natural force of water, we implement innovation processes to digitalize and generally set new standards in our field. This is manifested in our Hydro Lab that operates in cooperation with renowned scientific institutions. Here we execute innovation projects, product development, cost optimization, prototyping, model testing and development of measuring technology. This is how we uphold our technology leadership and expertise in the production of core components (e.g. runners) and innovation in production engineering.
