Research and development

Our customer’s satisfaction is our number one priority. We know that innovation is essential to them, and thus, fundamental to our future growth. To succeed we have transitioned from being a traditional cable manufacturer to a provider of customized solutions within energy and telecommunication.

Prysmian has 17 research and development centers of excellence across 10 countries with more than 600 skilled professionals doing nothing but developing solutions that will solve your current and future needs. At this point it has generated over 5000 patents granted or filed as well as advanced proprietary technologies.

Our incentive programs like prize for patent registrations are in place to source ideas, share knowledge and create an innovative mindset. This helps to achieve not only better and lower-cost products, but also safer and more eco-efficient solutions.

In addition we have long-established relationships with major universities and research centres across the world. These include the Polytechnic University in Milan, Trento’s Bruno Kessler Foundation in Italy, the University of Barcelona in Spain, the University of Sao Paulo in Brazil and the University of Delft in Holland.

Quality on all levels

A fundamental part of our research and development is to reassure quality in every part of the manufacturing process. This is accomplished by strict monitoring of production processes, from the procurement of raw materials to the delivery of the completed product. It includes rigorous controls of suppliers, which must be accompanied by special certificates stating their conformity to the standards agreed by contract with our customers. Our quality management system complies with the ISO 9001 standard.

Our conscious approach to use our global capacity in research and development to solve our customers’ requirements on a local level has led to Prysmian becoming the world leader within our field of business – not to mention all our satisfied customers. We will make sure it stays that way.
