The Role of Research and Development in Our Product Strategy

As head of our worldwide Research and Development (R&D) department, I have a challenging and exciting job: my team and I work to ensure the continuity and growth of the business through scientific research as well as the development and refinement of our high-quality products.

We have R&D centers in each of our major regions: North America, South America, Europe, China, Asia Pacific, and India. Together, we collaborate with our global colleagues and our team of scientists to understand and manage priorities for new products.

There exists a universe of things we want to do and another universe of what can actually be done. Our job is to find the overlap between both universes, focus on those things, and go where the science allows us to go. The result is our existing product portfolio of 20+ product categories and 2000+ distinct selling products globally, which we continue to refine, broaden, and bolster.
