Recticel is a European leader in PU applications present in Insulation, Bedding, Flexible Foams and Automotive applications. Research and development are at the heart of Recticel’s customer-focused innovation strategy. Knowledge, technology expertise and continuous improvement of our processes and products have therefore always been the basis of many of our innovations. In Recticel’s continuous quest to enhance its capability to develop sustainable innovations, it was decided in 2016 to merge the International Development Center (IDC), and the Sustainable Innovation Department. This will provide a much better position to drive future market-relevant and sustainable innovations. The newly created Sustainable Innovation Department (SID) employs 102 people, most of them being researchers, chemical engineers and specialized laboratory technicians.
