Acoustic panels the know-how – R&D Technicians

We got the "savoir-faire"

R&D Technicians

Behind each brand, there is a team of people applying their knowledge and expertise to help the brand achieve its goals. We know them as nonwovens professionals.

The main responsibilities of R&D Technicians focus on assisting development projects and modifying specific features to improve the technology. They participate in the product development process in team meetings to achieve all goals within given time-frame. They also work closely with the Project Leaders and the Business Unit Manager. They perform research tasks and help conceptualize, design, and build prototypes depending on project requirements. R&D Technicians must also have strong communication and multitasking skills to relay ideas and work well with other development/manufacturing technicians.
