The extensions to the Thule global product development and test centre in Hillerstorp, Sweden are nearing completion. This major investment (circa NZ$20 million) into a state-of-the-art facility illustrates the ongoing commitment to developing exceptional new products and maintaining the highest quality.
The global product development and test centre employs around 150 engineers and now has an additional 3,000 square meters for a park-like test track for products in the Active with Kids product category.
"We are now investing just as much in an expansion of our world-leading product development." says Magnus Welander, CEO and President of Thule Group.
Thule re-invests around 6% of sales back into NPD vs an industry standard of 2-3%. This equates to NZ$60 million or more every year and we have some exciting new products on the way as a result......and also why Thule stands behind its quality with an outstanding extended warranty. You can buy from föray with confidence knowing we have Thule in behind us!
