Innovation at Groupe Réfraco means responding creatively to change. It means generating new ideas, conducting R&D, improving processes, and reorganizing products and services.
Innovation in our company is also a state of mind: our staff, whether in the executive offices, on the factory floor or at customer sites, are always focused on continuous improvement and are constantly thinking outside the box. To achieve this, we allow our team members to take calculated risks and think of alternative ways of doing things. Our people know that the company has their backs when they step off the well-trodden path.
