Innovation Manager Success - Viltra & Coothill Engineering

Company: Viltra

Viltra, a Waterwaste Technology company based in Co. Down hired an innovation manager through Co-Innovate. Their project supported the development of a large scale value product and creating efficient manufacturing processes through 3D design.
