The target of Taiyo Europe Group´s research and development activities is to generate added value for client´s projects.

Taiyo Group has several locations, where research and development is carried out, as well as material and component tests.


No membrane material is used until it has successfully completed an extensive testing program and has been released for the intended purpose. It is no coincidence that Taiyo is a leading company in membrane construction. We want to continue to live up to this claim to leadership by constantly improving our products.

The quality of our products is shown by the satisfaction of our customers. The innovative power of the company is shown by the novelty of the products and the projects worldwide.
