IAV Moves to New Premises in Munich

04/27/2007 // Engineering Partner Expands Munich Operation – Space for 200 Staff

ive years after starting up its Munich operation, IAV has moved into new offices in the Schwabing Parkstadt business district between Frankfurter Ring and Domagkstrasse and is now in the direct proximity of its main client BMW.

IAV has been working in Munich since April 2002. Starting with a team of only three, the company has managed to expand its activities there on such a scale that the Munich branch now employs 200 engineers.

IAV's development focus in Munich ranges from engines and transmissions, electronics and infotainment projects right through to overall vehicle development. The level of growth called for the need to move into new business premises in April 2007. This move has created the basis for a secure future and further expansion.

Head of IAV in Munich, Matthias Kratzsch is delighted: "The new premises give our 200 members of staff optimum conditions for working quickly and efficiently. All of the development departments and our electronics laboratories are accommodated under one roof. This not only shortens distances, but also makes communication more direct."

At the end of June 2007, IAV invited its clients and business partners to the inauguration of its new Domagkstrasse premises. In addition to both IAV Presidents Kurt Blumenröder and Michael Schubert, Dr. Reinhard Wieczorek, head of the City of Munich's Department for Employment and Economic Development, and Dr. Reinhard Dörfler, Chief Executive of the Munich/Upper Bavarian Chamber of Industry and Commerce, also took part.

Employing 3,000 members of staff, IAV is one of the world's leading providers of development services to the automotive industry. The company develops innovative concepts and technologies for future vehicle generations and has been providing the entire spectrum of hi-tech engineering for over 20 years, with powertrain, electronics and vehicle development as its core competencies. Encompassing all of the well-known automobile manufacturers and component suppliers, its clients are provided with production-ready solutions for the entire vehicle on a one-stop shop basis.
