Our R&D department is continuously searching for state-of-the-art technologies and keeps close tabs on the development of materials, applying this knowledge to the development of new products. The objective here is to provide the customer with a product that meets the highest quality demands. We aim to achieve the lowest possible life-cycle cost.

We have excellent connections with reputed material suppliers for synthetic materials, and with secondary suppliers of coupling agents and/or semi-finished products from other materials. We work together with various renowned suppliers from the Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Estonia and the Far East for the purchase of the required moulds. In this way, we always try and purchase the optimum price-quality ratio for our customers.

We follow a project plan for the development of new products. Several disciplines participate in this on an ad-hoc basis. These can vary from the expertise of VDL Wientjes Roden employees (R&D, Purchase, Sales, Production and Quality), the customer, suppliers, mould manufacturers, etc.

We maintain the “one-stop shop” principle for various customers, in which the customer can outsource the complete product or product groups to us. We then handle everything, from the engineering up to the complete end product, including all the other technologies that are required or used, such as metal or die casting components, and electronics. This is possible thanks to VDL Wientjes Roden’s close co-operation with its associated companies within the VDL Groep.
