Innovation, the development of new ideas and technologies, is an essential principle for Sentry’s overall business philosophy. It is a concept that is especially fundamental to the building industry, which still has vast potential for technological advancement, as it works to identify and solve problems facing in the field.
Manufacturing and innovation are inextricably linked. Manufacturing spurs innovation, but manufacturing also depends on innovation to make products more sustainable, efficient and effective. Furthermore, because R&D is linked to production, innovation follows manufacturing — where manufacturing goes, the ideas follow.
Innovation in manufacturing creates jobs, new products and industries, and raises wages and living standards around the world. As globalization continues to present new opportunities and challenges, innovation in manufacturing will be crucial to achieving market competitiveness and economic development. Whether countries compete on the basis of cost or higher value-add, innovation is central to competitiveness.
