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.
