The addition of Silesia’s new Customer Innovation Center features state-of-the-art laboratories for flavor creation and applications, space dedicated to innovation, creativity, as well as commercial office spaces to accommodate the company’s growth. This new space takes Silesia to a new level of service and furthers its customer-centered focus, welcoming and allowing customers to interact in a collaborative manner with Silesia’s team of experts to better meet every unique need.

The office and laboratory addition is another in a growing list of improvement projects Leopardo has completed for Silesia at its headquarters, which Leopardo also built back in 1999.
