New product design and development is more often than not a crucial factor in the survival of a company. In an industry that is changing fast, firms must continually revise their design and range of products. This is necessary due to continuous technology change and development

as well as other competitors and the changing preference of customers. Without an R&D program, a firm must rely on strategic alliances, acquisitions, and networks to tap into the innovations of others.



The Hawking range of e-coat solutions is available from a network of dedicated worldwide distributors – As an ever expanding organisation we welcome the opportunity to work alongside organisations that will help offer our global client base services and solutions that complement our product offering.
