Description

Research and Development play an integral role in advancing the state of art of our industry. Innovation comes from many different places both within our industry and outside. When prices are low, research and development of new technologies can help push marginal opportunities over the profit line. Knowing what to focus attention on is important as the desire to “get more with less” drives efficiency yet can open up new R&D opportunities.
