R&D initiatives at CavMac are co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund and Enterprise Ireland under the Border, Midland and Western Regional Operational Programme 2014-2020.
The aim of the project is to develop two new products aimed at increasing R&D activity which will drive company development.
Results – These new products were successfully developed and have been added to our product range. They form an important niche target market for our business.
