Following the recent opening of its new global headquarters in Bradford-on-Avon, UK, automotive test systems supplier, AB Dynamics has opened a European office in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. The German facility will provide regional support to customers, and will also enable the company to offer an enhanced service to support driverless car development.
“Germany was the first government to broadly legalize self-driving cars and we are excited about the future advancements that our new facility will be able to support,” stated Klaus Weimert, AB Dynamics’ commercial director and the MD of the European office. “Our new European office will provide significant support to our existing customers and technical partners in the region and help to further expand our list of clients, helping to inspire continued growth in this crucial and increasingly relevant market. Demand for our expertise and products has increased in line with the automotive industry’s awareness of the importance of ADAS and self-driving technologies.”
Initially, the Frankfurt office will be a hub for order processing of continental European sales. Over the next 12 months, additional product support, engineering and manufacturing capabilities will be added, supporting the company’s product range of driving robots, kinematics and compliance test machines, the aVDS vehicle driving simulator and ADAS soft crash targets.
