Research & Development

Duro Felguera has been deeply involved in research, development and innovation activities since its establishment 150 years ago, which has helped consolidate DF as one of the Spanish groups with the largest international presence. Some subsidiaries of the Group have their own research and development department, which is coordinated by the Head of R&D&i.

Duro Felguera's R&D&i activities focus on improving the Companys competitiveness with a firm commitment to quality, projects of a high technological value and geared towards developing new products and processes. Some of its most recent projects include the new bonded fixing systems for track equipment developed for DF Rail, the NALON N8 automated loading system for DF Sistemas Logísticos or the new sludge separator design developed by Duro Felguera Calderería Pesada.

Duro Felguera is a founding member of Polo del Acero, a non-profit business association which was established to promote innovation, technological development and research applied to steel production and transformation.
