Research & Development

We are motivated by the feeling of achievement that comes from having developed something extraordinary


Improving production efficiency

Research & Development evolves new technologies for the ROCKWOOL Group globally. We support the business by improving production efficiency and developing new products and systems as well as investigating new business potential.

We are motivated by the feeling of achievement that comes from having developed something extraordinary that will move the business forward. 

Core development areas include the melting process, stone wool formation and production automation, fibre technology, and developing new stone wool-based products for a broad range of applications. We strive to be the world leader in what we do. 

Our employees include highly skilled project managers and a broad range of specialists in areas such as geology, material science, chemistry, engineering, architecture, systems design and building physics.

Project managers and specialists work through all phases of development and innovation, from the first creative idea work to installation and implementation of the final solutions in the business.

To maintain creativity, around 10 percent of your working hours will be spent on “ideation”: searching for new information and exchanging thoughts and ideas with internal or external networks

I am passionate about new technologies, new ideas and new ways of thinking
