It houses the business area’s global headquarters, its German headquarters and various global support departments, as well as a significantly extended R&D area and an IoT lab. 

Strengthening the core values

The center is 14,000 square meters in total and has allowed the expansion of research and development capabilities by 50%, to around 3,000 square meters, including a 300 square meter showroom area dedicated to the department. Peter Hahn, Trelleborg Sealing Solutions Business Area President, states: “Innovation is one of Trelleborg Group’s core values and within Trelleborg Sealing Solutions it is fundamental to everything we do.
