Thomas Fuhr’s focus during the last years was to secure innovation leadership, define new production technologies and extend manufacturing capacities. Thus, since September 2018, the laboratory extension in Hemer, Germany, combines all previously decentralized activities of the research laboratory in one place, enabling even closer interaction within the main departments of research and development and ensuring even more efficient development processes for more innovations.

Furthermore, GROHE also invested in a new zinc manufacturing capability in Klaeng, Thailand, doubling the capacity. A big step towards the future of production was made in 2019: By advancing the 3D technology process to meet the unique challenges of metal printing, GROHE opened up a new era in production which is Made in Germany.
