The innofactory is you!

Based on our common purpose, “Becoming better every day – since 1802”, we strive to change the future.

We have set ourselves the goal to become a sustainability and innovation leader providing superior customer value and operational excellence. Key to achieve these goals is an innovation management that connects know-how and coordinates innovation activities worldwide. The innofactory was launched in 2018 and sets a clear focus on customer-centric innovation, sustainable mobility as well as a strong innovation culture.

GF Casting Solutions is an open-minded company, always in search for fresh throughts and ideas. We are centrally coordinating global ideas and innovation projects while enabling each of our colleagues to contribute to our innovative strengths. 

The new innovation approach “innofactory​” involves all employees worldwide – from the development, production, sales as well as other departments. This graphic from Sasan Saidi shows our innovation processes and departments that are integrated.
Innovation culture

An open dialog and collaboration amongst all employees defines the culture of the division and stimulates creativity.

Customer focus

By listening, brainstorming ideas and thinking ahead, we build a strong relationship with our customer and develop new solutions.

Ideation

Ideas develop the most, when we are allowed to think freely. Whether during our daily work, in workshops or in brainstorming sessions the Design Thinking approach is applied.

Innovation strategy

A profound analysis of current trends, customer needs, competition and our strengths build the foundation of a target-orientated and successful cooperation.

Innovation process & controlling

We move the best ideas together with our customer forward and stop unpromising ideas at an early stage, following our innovation process. ​

Communication & representation

We communicate transparently internally and cooperate with external partners. This is how we are able to present the Division as an innovation driver.
