Our research hub in the high-tech city of Bengaluru, goes from strength to strength, with a growing team of more than 40 research scientists with an average age of just 29.

The hub sits alongside our two other research hubs in Paris and Toronto. Taken together, these three centres are boosting our efforts to bring great new ideas to market to our customers at much faster pace, as key priority in our Growth with Purpose strategy.

The Bengaluru team had an extremely busy year in 2022 with an increasingly diverse range of new developments to tackle different segments of the market.

These include terrific work on weight optimisation with the team redesigning our range of ball valves to significantly reduce their carbon footprint with a solution that is 48% lighter.

Our scientists also developed an easy-to-handle and smaller than ever device to electrofuse pipes and also came up with a stormwater offering including some solutions made of 100% recycled content from PE plastic bags.

Following the launch of Artistry, our stylish range of front-of-the-wall bathroom and kitchen fittings and accessories, our team conceived a water repellent coating to keep the surface of taps and shower heads as clean as a whistle.
