EdDesign   BORN TO INNOVATE, SUSTAINABLE GROWING
Since the beginning ED GROUP has shown a strong propensity towards technological innovation of products and production processes.​

​Even today, in order to strengthen its positions, ED GROUP considers essential to invest in innovation in a sustainable manner, with primary emphasis on people, society and the environment.
In the linear model, innovation is the direct result of a succession of well-defined stages: research, development, design, production and marketing of goods. This model has historically been the basis for the allocation of public incentives to the research: it is believed that by promoting basic research, to trigger the first stage of innovation.
In the chain model is highlighted the market feedback that generating an expectation, it is able to target businesses or public entities to certain lines of innovation. In turn, the market expectation is connected to the spread and acceptance of previous innovations. In this model, the centrality of the research falls apart; it is also possible innovate through a recombination of existing technologies or through acquisition of knowledge (acquisition of patents, consultancy, knowledge transfer). Moreover, not only basic research can lead to technological innovations, but can also be vice versa: technology can precede science. This model is actually the predominant contemporary industry.
Innovation is not just about technology and can take different forms, for example the development of new commercial concepts and new ways of distribution, marketing and design or organizational changes and image.
ED GROUP has been able to innovate since origins already bringing Composite Materials from "black art" to industrial discipline.

From the aircraft fairings to the trains nose cones, from the boats hulls to wind turbine blades, composite materials provide an excellent solution to meet the market demands and the needs of environmental protection, without rising the costs.
Lightweight, strong and durable, composite materials are ideal for creating lightweight structures with exceptional performance. Designing and mass-production items with composite materials, however, is an extremely complex and expensive process. Traditional solutions currently on the market dealing in separate matters and distinct processes of design, analysis and manufacture of composite parts. ED GROUP has developed innovative solutions embracing the whole range of activities for product development, from design to analysis, through to manufacture, on a single virtual platform.
The development in cooperation with leading companies in their respective industries has enabled ED GROUP to get innovations currently in use at its own locations.
Through the engineering support of ED GROUP covering all the processes of design, analysis and manufacture of composites, Customers can:
- Foresee the overall behavior of the product
- Ensure manufacturability by integrating the structural requirements for assembly and production from an early stage of the design
- Reduce cycle time from design to manufacturing preparation to production, to the manufacturing factory
- Facilitate communication between disciplines, cross-functional teams and supply chain to prevent errors and costly delays
