The global growth plans of FEV are now also taking shape in the automotive region of Stuttgart. FEV moved into a new building at Erich-Herion-Straße 6 in Fellbach on February 18, 2016, since the former headquarters of our Stuttgart branch no longer met the Company’s needs. In the future, this approximately 6,000-square-meter building will contain office and workshop space for up to 250 employees.
“At the heart of our strategy for the future is close proximity to our customers in their local markets,” explained Professor Stefan Pischinger, President and CEO of the FEV Group. “To better meet rising demand in the Stuttgart automotive region, it’s only logical that we would continue to expand our capacity there.”
“Our new location allows us to expand our service portfolio in Stuttgart to include engine assembly, installation and testing of prototype vehicles including measurement technology, vehicle endurance, and production support,” explains Andreas Witt, FEV’s site manager in Stuttgart. “We also offer our customers services relating to transmission and vehicle electronics, software development and validation, as well as the integration and validation of telematics/connectivity systems.”
Test Capacity and Extended Service Portfolio
For extensive testing and turnkey powertrain projects, FEV has a range of test systems and testing capacity at the Stuttgart location – including vehicle chassis dynamometers, engine test benches and a private hardware-in-the-loop test field. There is also a nearby driving route to measure Real Driving Emissions (RDE) during normal road use. This allows our experienced development teams to handle customer projects — such as diesel and gasoline engine applications, transmission development, powertrain integration, electrical and electronics activities, and motorcycle development — locally and nearby our customers.
