Press Release: MESSRING moved to new headquarter

World market leader for crash test technology moves to new headquarter / Setting the course for innovation and further development of the organization

The new headquarter was planned and built exactly according to the needs of MESSRING. Since the start of construction in September 2019 all requirements and wishes of MESSRING were incorporated in close cooperation with the construction company. The result is a working environment that is characterized by open, bright rooms and numerous meeting rooms that invite the exchange of ideas and joint project work.

The highlight of the building complex is the large hall including its own crash test facility and two sled test facilities. The crash test facility is fully equipped with state-of-the-art technology and is used not only for pre-assembly of customer orders but also for both internal and external tests from research and development projects. In addition, there is sufficient space in the crash hall and on the open-air grounds for tests from the Active Safety area – which is becoming increasingly important for MESSRING – that deals with the validation of autonomous driving functions.

Dierk Arp, Managing Director of MESSRING GmbH, regarding the move: “After 20 successful years with continuous growth MESSRING is taking a big step in its commitment to improving traffic safety by moving into the new building. Our goal is to further revive the tradition of over 50 years of crash test innovation with the new environment and working conditions and to carry it successfully into the future”.

• capacity up to 200 workstations,
