A company is only as credible as the people behind it. The management plays a key role here.
At the head of the operation are two managing directors, Dierk Arp and Robert Weber, who have decades of experience in the sphere of crash testing and, as engineers, bring along extensive specialist knowledge – especially in the field of measurement technology. They lead a team of over 130 employees and specialists, who plan, on a case-by-case basis, all the complex subtasks and components of such a system and bring them together into a facility. Never change a winning team!
