About us

The SGL Group has brought together all research activities in a central R&D organization: Technology & Innovation (T&I) since 2005. Our state-of-the-art office building in Meitingen with working space for 150 scientists, pilot plants and laboratories establishes the ideal conditions to enable developers to work with greatest effect and inspiration. Our mission:

  • Perform R&D projects to strengthen profitable growth of existing businesses
  • Identify and develop high potential business projects and new business opportunities fitting to our company's strategy and product portfolio
  • Attract and develop experts to establish T&I as a talent pool


Cooperation with partners from academia and other industries has become a key factor for the successful transformation of innovative ideas into market-ready products and sound businesses. We create on-topic networks with leading universities and research institutes, e.g.:

Institute for Carbon Composites - SGL Group Chair at TU München

University of Sciene and Technology AGH Krakow, Poland

Our Innovation Panel - The Future Forum of the SGL Group
