A research and development center (R & D center) was established in 2015, as a separate functional unit. It was established as a result of the increased importance of developing new technologies and products, as well as increasing investments into this direction.
Nowadays, R & D center is developing about 20 projects to improve existing equipment and create new products, oriented for the new markets.
Main focus for R&D next couple years is on developing a new line of SCSRs, which will comply with the newest standards that are being developed right now in different countries. New products will have advanced breathing parameters comparing to our current self-rescuers and what is available on the market. However, one of our main concern is still ergonomics - we are making very lightweight, durable and very easy-to-use product.
