RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT

 

Research, development and the design of innovative products constitute important orientation points of SAKOS company. The company’s specialised technicians and engineers try to be always informed about all kinds of products, services as well as the new technological developments concerning the packaging material market. They are always available to render their services to the firm’s partners in the best possible way.
Strategic centre of these activities is the firm’s technologically fully equipped laboratory, which is directed by a NTUA chemical engineer and contains up to date analytical control instruments. In the laboratory take place, on the one hand, the evaluation of the products already produced by the company and, on the other hand, the control of those which are designed and planned to be provided to the consumers.

Our aim is to create, always in cooperation with the technical and marketing departments, innovative products and to assure their quality within the strict framework of the prevailing quality standards.
