What is the biggest trend in the industry today?
The envelope and building construction sectors are currently experiencing increased demand for more robust solutions. Following the EU 305/2011 regulations on energy efficiency and building safety, products must have higher performance rates and are subject to stricter quality standards. Innovation is therefore essential not only for the product but for the entire production process too, up to and including installation.
How is your company responding to the growing demand for innovative solutions?
For IN&OUT, innovation means finding solutions that add value to our products in order to satisfy both the end consumers and the shareholders. The Group is investing important resources in terms of people and skills in R&D activities, both in-house and out-sourced. Our goal is to make improvements and find technical solutions offering new products to meet an increasingly technically-advanced demand. Home automation and the integration of home appliances, for example - currently through the Cloud and with IOT in the future. For this reason we believe that above all we need to listen carefully to the market, to our customers and to our partner companies, to get critical information and feedback on concrete projects.
