Successful development and cooperation with science

In Tosama, ideas for new products and prototypes are developed in the company's own development department and research group. The research group, which was founded in 2005, currently consists of 26 registered researchers. Over the years, the group completed numerous applied research projects, successfully joined various research consortia, it is also a co-founder of the Centre of Excellence for Polymer Materials and Technologies and an active member of IRSPIN and EDANA.

We are aware of the importance of knowledge transfer and the transfer of ideas as well as the cooperation between industry and science for the successful and creative work of every company. Therefore, we systematically seek connections with well-established domestic and foreign research centres such as Gorenje, Tecos, University and University Medical Centres of Ljubljana and Maribor, Jožef Stefan Institute, National Institute of Chemistry, VITO, SOFTAL, IMO, Frunhofer, Lionex and others. The result of these connections are successful projects that produced ideas and confirmations for many of Tosama's important products. The most renowned is undoubtedly Vivamel – the first Slovenian modern wound dressing. Furthermore, we are proud of the patented Butter-Fly tampon and there are still many ongoing environment-related projects that drive Tosama to create more environmentally friendly products from natural materials.

In the recent years, we have been investing in the equipment needed by developers and researchers. Thus, we managed to equip our physics, chemical, and microbiological laboratories with modern technologies. We also supplied our construction laboratory with new computer hardware and software and a four-axis CNC cutter. We obtained funds for this equipment from European and Slovene co-financed projects – we received just under € 1 million of subsidies in 18 projects. Among the most prominent achievements of our development department are four international patents, which have enabled us selling € 60 million worth of tampons over the last ten years. Two of the patents have been successfully defended from two largest multinational corporations before the Unified Patent Court. Last but not least, we are also very proud of the Innovation Award presented by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Slovenia in 2012.
