How our pop-up R&D teams apply their on-the-ground expertise
Coats has always been a leading name in innovation: you don’t get to be a company with a 250-year history unless you keep ahead of developments in the industry.
In the past – like many companies – we ran a traditional standalone research and development (R&D) department. Based in Paisley, this department was responsible for much of our ground-breaking work on colour algorithms which are still used throughout the industry today. That department is now part of the manufacturing side of the business, but the rest of our R&D function has taken a radical turn.
