INNOVATION IS ALSO THINKING BIG

The Company has been working on systematizing the innovation management process in order to make innovation continuous and sustainable over time. A significant part of these efforts has focused on developing specialized products and services to meet our clients specific and significant everyday needs. Innovation focal points were established in order to harness factors affecting competitiveness and their respective solutions as guides on our search for new, positive, high-impact projects.

The Company also created an Innovation Synergy Group that brings together representatives from the Company’s subsidiaries at global work meetings. One objective of these meetings is to create a road map that provides a thorough understanding of the problems facing customers around the world in order to provide technological solutions and add value.
