Partnerships with associations, institutes, universities and colleges
The LAMILUX Heinrich Strunz Group has a wide range of universities, advanced technical colleges and technical schools in its immediate vicinity. These partnerships prove to be highly beneficial due to the modernly equipped laboratories at these institutions, as we are provided with a wide range of effective test and analysis processes along with technical equipment and facilities. We also have a close and effective network of test centres and institutes which can even carry out country-specific tests swiftly on a solid scientific basis according to individual requirements for international clients. By closely working together with different associations, we conduct research on future trends and work out joint solutions in the fields of lightweight design, energy efficiency and sustainability.
