With a production and assembly area of approx. 15,500m2 and the interdisciplinary cooperation of all available competencies, we have the opportunity to realise production processes par excellence. That is why we only develop complete services in order to ensure the efficiency and productivity of our customers.

This means specifically: Our customers receive everything from us, from a single source. We accompany you competently and seamlessly in every step of the process – from planning and construction through production and assembly to commissioning and training.

In this way we want to ensure that both your requirements and ours are implemented and fulfilled to the highest quality standard.


Automation technology, assembly and handling technology, transport and transfer systems, assemblies and special devices including inspection, measurement and test equipment as well as control technology with control and quality recording systems: Anyone who offers a production range like ours also provides their customers with excellent support.

As consistently as we build new systems, we are just as flexible when existing systems have to be expanded or converted to meet changed requirements. Here, too, we plan and construct after a thorough analysis of the desired production goals and assembly tasks. We integrate existing technologies, including third-party technologies, where they support the new processes in a meaningful way.

Our high level of vertical integration ensures that everything runs smoothly. With our own state-of-the-art machinery, we can quickly make adjustments and solve unforeseeable problems within a very short time.


With precision and perseverance, we always look for the best solution for the production-related challenges of our customers.

With this commitment, we have become the point of contact for leading international companies from numerous industries, but mainly the automotive industry.

Our customers expect tailor-made solutions of the highest quality, excellent support and perfect after-sales service – and that's exactly what you get from us.
