Innovative Thinking

As demonstrated by the company founders from the very start, ILF has always placed great importance on innovative solutions. ILF understands and promotes innovation both in connection with ILF’s technical solutions, materials, and work steps as well as in its own work processes and tools.

Although ILF is not a research institute, it partners with universities and public and private entities to participate in well selected research projects in different sectors. Furthermore, ILF is actively involved in various working groups to develop new guidelines and concepts.
