At KRONOS the customer is the focus and is actively involved in product development. The collaboration with customers starts very early. Before we start thinking about solution concepts or go into the lab, we work with our customers to spark new ideas or identify important unmet needs where KRONOS can find a solution to create new value for the customer. Our customers are involved in the product development process from concept evaluations to prototype testing to ensure the intended solution satisfies their needs and brings added value.
