PATENTS & TRADEMARKS

I valori del Gruppo, le competenze interne e la stretta collaborazione con i Clienti, ciascuno leader nel proprio mercato di riferimento, ha comportato la crescita del Gruppo dal punto di vista tecnico e tecnologico rendendolo, nei decenni, vero e proprio first mover nel settore dei fastener.
Ne sono prova gli oltre 130 brevetti sviluppati negli anni, a cui si aggiungono innumerevoli trademark e trattamenti che costituiscono veri e propri punti di riferimento per il settore dei fasteners: Torx®, Strux®, Z-Form®, Paralobe™, Magnaseal®, Everprotect®, Esascanalata®, Neverfriction™ – solo per citarne alcuni.
Materiali, rivestimenti, tecnologie, design dei prodotti sono al centro dell’analisi di decine di professionalità integrate che oltre a lavorare in coordinamento nei centri siti in Italia, USA e Brasile, si confrontano continuamente con università e centri di ricerca. Il tutto, da sempre, ponendo particolare attenzione anche all’aspetto green dell’attività.
