Innovation and Development

Innovation is part of CTCI's corporate culture, and we have always strived 
toward the introduction and R&D of new technologies.  To implement our innovative developments in practice, CTCI has established the Innovation R&D Center to be in charge of processes, tools, and methods of R&D and project improvements.

CTCI has commenced in various R&D projects since 2016 and has devoted over $100 million to these research projects.
