Collaboration at the Core of R&D

Working in partnership with these customers, we take a best-in-class approach to supporting their performance targets and optimizing their environmental or social footprints. Those partnerships are at the heart of our ability to anticipate and address customer challenges. Oerlikon’s capacity to deliver superior solutions reflects the time we take to get to know our customers at their facilities around the world. We don’t settle for merely hearing about the issues they face or the updates they need to existing technologies. Our engineers travel globally to gain a first-hand understanding of customers’ evolving requirements.

Nurturing Ideas, Preserving the Planet

We pride ourselves on fostering a culture of curiosity and encouraging the free and open exchange of ideas, no matter how unconventional those ideas may be. This approach supports our research and engineering strategy and our ability to address three priorities: customer needs, market potential and environmental concerns. These objectives complement, rather than compete against, one another. We are committed to the principle that new technologies and enhancements to existing applications can deliver higher productivity, lower operating costs and more sustainable performance.
