Cooperation with universities & Innovations team
We specialise in the development and production of innovative – often patent-protected – special products for the retail and advertising markets and can rely on the support of our Innovations team and our international cooperation with several universities.
Cooperation with universities
Since we are currently cooperating with six universities, we are in a position to rapidly convert product ideas into 3D animations, produce prototypes and draw up precise specifications for final production. Trained industrial designers and their design professors from one German and two international universities are currently supporting us in the development of products.
A professor in marketing and his team are supporting us in this field. Most of the members of our Innovations team are students proposed by their professor and if possible will be appointed in a fixed position after their studies. Prof. Swoboda and his team also advise and support us in major product launches.
We are cooperating with a further German university in the field of physics. The Open Monitor product was developed by Prof. Knoll. After several years of product development, it is now ready to proceed into industrial production.
A partner college is supporting us in the field of patenting and is researching new patents and options for protection of our ideas.
Our international cooperation with several universities allows us to develop products to suit foreign cultures, needs and interests.
Our own Innovations team will suggest suitable articles and develop and customise your products in cooperation with several universities.
We consider patent protection of our innovations paramount if at all possible. Discussions will be held with producers during the development phase already to establish whether the idea may be implemented in the form of a viable product.
Would you like to raise your profile above conventional advertising media?
We are the holders of more than 100 patents in various fields that we will be able to adapt to your requirements without loss of patent protection and on request cede to you exclusively in your sector. More than 2 million patented products have been sold to date. We would be happy to compile an overview of those of our patents that are relevant to your business for you.
Alphabetical list of patents
The following links will take you to our patent categories:
Bath & hygiene articles
Innovative brewery articles
Unique household articles
Innovative World Cup and European Cup articles
Patent-protected world debut: Open Monitor
In addition to existing patented articles, we can also offer you entirely customised products to suit your requirements.
This will be handled either by our internal Innovations team or be professionally presented as 3D animations and fully in-house developments in cooperation with several universities.
We attach great importance to top-quality prototyping since this constitutes the basis for smooth production in bulk. Developers at the factories are involved from the start to ensure that all aspects are discussed in detail before start of production.
This product is based on nanotechnology and is a world first. Each “ingredient” has been developed by the University of Münster over many years and the product is now produced and distributed worldwide exclusively by ourselves.
As if by magic, we will open a window at the time you specify. The speed of opening may, if you wish, be a function of temperature.
There is scope for numerous product novelties here – from an innovative competition processor via the time monitor and down to electronic best-before dates.
This highly complex new development is set to revolutionise the advertising media market in the field of competition and game processors and will offer unimagined possibilities in the medical and food sectors.
