Vehicle dynamics components supplier Tier 1 supplier Continental has announced revisions to its staff, with Friedrich Angerbauer taking over as head of the advanced driver assistance systems business (ADAS) unit at Continental’s Lindau site.
Earlier this month, Angerbauer took over as head of ADAS within Continental’s chassis and safety division. The ADAS unit of Continental is responsible for systems such as stereo cameras, radar and sensors found within the automotive sector. The unit employs more than 1,000 people worldwide and has sites in the USA, Japan, Romania and Germany. Lindau is home to over 400 engineers, with plans for expansion, around 100 extra positions, under Angerbauer.
“The way in which the business has developed in recent years shows that ADAS can become the engine of growth for our division,” said Friedrich Angerbauer upon his appointment. “By focusing on an own business unit, our aim is to enable profitable growth and further accelerate already initiated growth activities over the coming years.”
Angerbauer has been with Continental since 2001 and has predominately worked in Asia with the company. He replaces Dr. Andreas Brand, who has now left Continental to form part of the board of an MDAX-quoted company.
