Research & Development
Brilliant ideas for today’s and tomorrow’s successes
The SONAX Research and Development team does not spare any effort to make good products even better. Permanent innovation activities again and again direct the markets’ attention to SONAX’s innovations, which bring dynamics to the business and drive the brand’s growth.
SONAX products stand for highest quality “made in Germany” and convince with excellent effect and outstanding performance. Many successful tests and awards of independent testing institutes such as DEKRA (an independent vehicle inspectorate), TÜV (technical inspection agency) or GTÜ (association of technical monitoring) underline this year after year.
And the excellent scores in product tests regularly performed by German auto publications such as “Auto Bild”, “auto motor und sport” and the “Auto Zeitung” additionally emphasise SONAX’s high competence in research and development.
The convincing performance of SONAX products go hand in hand with exemplary environmental characteristics: the products meet EU guidelines, the ÖNORM (Austrian standard) and strictest environmental specifications.
The SONAX research and development activities aim at advancing and optimising product performance.
Windscreen cleaners containing surfactants that are based on renewable primary products or the new propellant-free products for cockpits and upholsteries are just a few of many examples. Some products are even dermatologically approved.
SONAX follows a comprehensive company strategy that attaches great importance to environmental friendliness and health protection in product development: the entire Hoffmann Group of Companies, to which SONAX belongs, is certified according to EN ISO 14001.
Fulfilling this European standard expresses the company’s voluntary participation in the global environmental management guideline. The ISO 9001 certification of the internationally respected German inspection agency TÜV confirms SONAX’s modern production procedures and its consequent quality management. The TÜV audits research, manufacturing processes and the routes of transport regularly and extensively.
