Since 2002, i.e. the launch of its own lead refinery, the Company has, in collaboration with the Institute of Non-Ferrous Metals in Gliwice, developed a wide range of products.

Launched in 2014, the Research and Development Facility enables developing increasingly more technologically advanced alloys and further increasing their share in the product family. Research and development is carried out in close cooperation with major customers of Orzeł Biały.
