BekaertDeslee, the world’s leading specialist in mattress fabrics and mattress covers, has completed the construction of a new Innovation & Design Center (IDC) in Waregem, Belgium. The BekaertDeslee IDC is the 'home' for the creative and technological heart of the group including the pilot plant, R&D, engineering, design, and marketing & communication.

BekaertDeslee IDC is also home to BekaertDeslee Academy, a platform for open innovation, where we invite suppliers, customers, scientists, universities and research institutes to engage in co-creation of unique products and services.

Through IDC, our 9 business units are connected across the globe as one virtual network to scan the world for new trends in sleeping technology, BekaertDeslee said in a press release. This worldwide radar allows it to translate upcoming technologies into innovative products fit for the bed environment

BekaertDeslee IDC groups full production size machines, and invests in the latest technology in weaving, knitting and finishing. This fully integrated approach supports a flawless rollout of innovations and on-site training for the business units to ensure all units worldwide get rapidly geared up for full production. Working together on a global scale allows us to do things in the most efficient and effective way. 

"Change and continuous improvement are in the DNA of our company. We innovate on design, technology, services, communication, manufacturing… Our goal is to bring relevant innovation to the market, close to the customer. In our quest to deliver better sleep quality, we are aided by the increasing awareness that sleep is important for health, mental wellbeing and performance," the release added. (RR)
