CADMATIC in top 7 R&D investors in Finland!
Posted on September 14, 2021
As a percentage of annual turnover, CADMATIC invests the 7th most in R&D out of the top 100 companies in Finland.
Finnish technology and business magazine Tekniikka&Talous recently published its annual ranking of the biggest R&D investors in Finland. For the 2020 financial year, CADMATIC invested EUR 6,3 million in R&D, which represents 24,7% of turnover. This is an increase on the 21% of turnover invested in the 2019 financial year.
CADMATIC CEO Jukka Rantala is proud of this achievement, especially in view of a worrying declining trend in R&D investments in Finland over recent years as reported by the Finnish Broadcasting Company Yle on 6 September 2021. It is feared that lower R&D investments will negatively impact the Finnish economy in years ahead.
“Despite the Covid-19 related difficulties, we have invested strongly in R&D. We are increasing our investments to support our aggressive growth ambitions over the next 5 years. These R&D investments ensure that we keep developing products that empower our customers to push their quality and efficiency boundaries. I am, for example, very excited about the development work we are doing around Digital Twins, Virtual and Augmented Reality, and AI and their applications in industrial investment projects,” says Rantala.
