Innocon will inaugurate innovative Technology Center in June

This new center will allow the company to consolidate itself as the only existing Private Industrial R&D+i Center in the Biobio region and to be able to be a real contribution to the development of research and innovation projects, engineering and work in the region and the country.

On June 28 at 1:00 p.m., the inauguration ceremony of the new facilities of the INNOCON industrial research technology center will take place. To the activity, which will take place at Calle Central S/N, Sitio 3, Lote 4, Manzana C, Parque Industrial Escuadrón 1, Coronel, in Chile, government authorities, regional authorities, customers, suppliers, company workers and the media are invited.

The new facilities, with an investment of US$ 3.2, have a total of 1,490 m2 built, which house a 3-story building for analysis laboratories, engineering and consulting offices, meeting rooms and an auditorium. In addition, it has a test laboratory for chemical, food and metallurgical pilot plants; a machine workshop for the development of machines-equipment-structures and new canteens and changing rooms for the more than 60 professionals who work there.

Carlos Sepulveda, Innocon’s CEO, points out that these new facilities, together with the knowledge and experience of INNOCON professionals, will contribute significantly to filling the gap between the Industrial World and R&D+i. “There is no company of this type in the region or in the country that has the recognized experience of transforming a basic idea into a final product, this being fundamental to be able to effectively generate changes in the country’s productive matrix and not only remains as a good idea,” CEO said.

Regarding the expectations that the company has in relation to this new technological center, it can be pointed out that in the short term it expects to consolidate itself as the only existing private Industrial R&D center in the Biobio region and expand its development capabilities of engineering and construction projects. On the other hand, in the medium term, what the company seeks is to embrace new production areas and grow both in customers and in services, always offering products with a strong technological component and added value.
