technology adoption issue in manufacturing firms. Previous research does not cover the manufacturing firms’ role and supplier relationships in creating RMTIs sufficiently. This study pursues increased knowledge on the practices for creating RMTIs. The qualitative study of 23 RMTI cases maps the dimensions of innovation novelty, characterizes the manufacturing firms’ central role in creating the innovation, and reveals differences in developing and implementing the innovation for modular equipment versus novel, unique equipment. The manufacturing firm is portrayed as an initiator and creator of RMTI, not just as an innovation adopter.
