Wolfgang Heil Managing director GSR Ventiltechnik Gmbh & Co. KG 'The first meeting between GSR Ventiltechnik GmbH & Co. KG and DLR took place in 2002 at an exhibition on the transfer of technology from research institutes to industry. We were convinced by DLR's presentation of the rapid reaction valve (RRV®), a technology that is unique to this day. The valve promised to greatly enrich our company's product portfolio. Moreover, we were intrigued by co-operating with competent partners like those at DLR who have has everything it takes to merge research and business. Today, the RRV® is a highly developed product which is now available in a variety of standard versions and continues to expand its presence on the market. We have already received the first major orders, which means that our collaboration with DLR has been a worth wile investment.'
