Intensive and comprehensive research and development activities strengthen market positions in the business sectors Rheinmetall Automotive and Rheinmetall Defence and secure the Rheinmetall Group's technological competitive edge. They are a significant factor in the success of the company. In 2018, €336 million was spent on research and development throughout the Group and 3,608 employees had been working in R&D.
Initiative is desired - the Group is always looking for good ideas. And they pay off - for the company and the employees. Rheinmetall employees use their process-specific knowledge, their experience and their creativity and submit suggestions to improve economic viability, work procedures and process engineering processes via management systems or via the employee suggestion scheme.
