The use of sophisticated software for calculations and optimization allows us to develop weight and cost-optimized vehicles and components from a feasibility study through to the final proof of structural integrity.

The knowledge of our long term employees and the skills of young engineers in new technologies inspire us towards future-oriented solutions.

The results of our work are reliable, durable and economical and meet the needs of demanding customers.
