Our integrated approach: We support nearly all carmakers and their suppliers with a unique spectrum of competencies. It doesn’t matter if you need our proven expertise in the field of combustion engines or alternative drive systems, or if you are looking for a strong partner for electromobility, electronics and software. We’re happy to help you take on projects involving driver assistance, lightweight construction, or safety. In other words, we provide solutions that are suitable for mass production, and technology that is sustainable for the entire vehicle. That’s why you’ll find IAV innovations in nearly every car.

Link between the idea and the start of production: Highly qualified and motivated engineers provide support for you at every stage of the development process, beginning with the initial idea and continuing with simulations, prototyping, component and bench tests. We also support with everything from road tests to the start of production. As an innovative company, we have our own advanced development operations, conduct primary research, and provide solutions with a methodical interdisciplinary approach. Cutting-edge testing technology and workplaces, along with realistic testing environments, complement our broad foundation for advancing projects with experience and passion. Our goal is to pave the way for your success.
