Salicru increases its commitment to research and development (R&D) and technological innovation as an industrial growth strategy. The company has bolstered its activities in this area with the aim of promoting a continuous process of product improvement, enhancing new technological capabilities and placing itself at the forefront of its sector.


The first of these actions has been the expansion of its R&D Department, which involved doubling its size from 357 m2 to 662 m2, equipping it with a thermal stress room and five automatic functional test cubicles, and increasing its workforce with engineers who are specialists in power testing, electric vehicles, variable-speed drives, cutting-edge human interfaces and IoT devices and platforms.


These new resources will enable the company to undertake the full digitisation of its products and offer power electronics engineering solutions to other sectors such as electric mobility, high-speed rail and 3D printing, for which both custom designs and technical/economic feasibility studies are carried out.


The company has also opened an Internet of Things (IoT) Section to respond to the new competitiveness needs of Industry 4.0. And, especially, to optimise the connectivity of Salicru products and offer cloud solutions tailored to the protection and security needs of its customers.
