To ensure long-term competitive advantages over competitors, research has led to large investments in R&D resulting in innovative, sophisticated new products. Consequently, it has become compulsory for WAMGROUP to protect itself against competitors in various countries.
The first WAM patent regarding an integrated drive bearing assembly was registered on October 14th, 1977.
Apart from various European countries, today WAMGROUP patents are extended to countries as far as Russia, India and China. In recent years, thanks to constantly substantial investments in R&D, the number of patent applications by the Group has increased. The latest one so far was registered in March 2016.
WAMGROUP believes in the need of patents to protect its intellectual property and its competitive advantage acquired over time through research and development, as well as field experience.
Another objective is to create exclusivity for future technological evolution of WAMGROUP products.
