Innovation means growth, in terms of products and corporate culture.
This is the theory behind our new research centre, the vermilion heart of our study into and experimentation on brand-new and existing products. In light of the vital role played by alternative energy in social responsibility and the development of market opportunities, Caleffi decided to devote its new laboratory to the development of components for solar energy and geothermal plants using energy created to power a percentage of the office needs, among other things.
This bright red building stands out immediately as the centrepiece of our main plant in Fontaneto. Its cubic design is evocative of both the solidity of our business and the scientific nature of the research, a kind of symbolism that embodies the essence of Caleffi’s corporate mission: innovation translated into growth in production and company culture.
We chose red, not one of our company colours, to highlight the need to concentrate on R&D, especially in the area of renewable energy. The new Research Centre will be the pulsating heart of our new alternative energy product lines
The main role of the centre consists of research into enhancing products already in the catalogue and tests on standard components with an emphasis on energy-saving features and top quality.
