About Us


We are a young, highly motivated team of experienced engineers with fun at work. Our headquarters is situated on the pre-alpine region between Munich City and Tegernsee Valley – just the perfect location to call it a day sitting in a beer garden or hiking in Bavarian Alps.

Our Know-How ranges from the design of complex headlamps and tail lamps to signal lighting and interior lighting including the necessary electronic components, as well as a variety of non-automotive applications.

We have acquired our standing with decades of experience with internationally renowned automotive suppliers. Clients appreciate our ability to actively drive innovation; therefore, we are sought-after partners when it comes to highly complex designs and concept studies.
