Welcome to Kronberg, Germany – the Braun global head- quarters for research and development (R&D). More than 400 scientists and engineers from over 70 countries are at work here. Their mission: To create innovative devices that will improve the everyday lives of people worldwide.
More than 80 % of our employees have a college degree. Many of them hold PhDs with disciplines ranging from mechanical engineering, biology, chemistry, via mathematics and physics to material science or industrial de- sign. The professionals in Kronberg are part of a global, company-wide network of 9,000 R&D experts working for such well-known brands as Gillette, Pampers, Olay, SKII, Pantene Pro-V and Head & Shoulders. In addition, R&D cooperates with external experts from universities and research institutes all over the world.
The R&D headquarters are part of Kronberg Campus, comprising eight buildings that cover around 113,000 square meters. This is where some of our company’s most critical manufacturing processes are carried out. For example, all the cutting parts for Braun electrical shavers are manufactured in Kronberg. And from here it is only a short drive to the small town of Walldürn, where our German manufacturing facility is located. In total, nearly 1,000 men and women are employed here to produce our electronic devices – and it goes without saying that each and every one meets particularly high quality standards.
