As part of COESIA Group, industrial and technological research is the main factor of GDM’s success.
Defining Innovations that are of value to our customers and the relative technical solutions, ensures the proper direction for our R&D projects.
In this perspective a new development program called Drive The Future has been launched in 2013:
