Tradition & innovation

The term "manufactory" probably best describes the core of Prototechnik as a company. It stands for a high standard of craftsmanship combined with industrial production methods, for skilled craftsmen, experts and engineers, and for decades of motorsport and high-performance tradition. Teamwork is emphasized.

The traditional machining of all metallic materials by hand is supplemented with modern production methods – right through to MIG/MAG and WIG welding robots. This allows all the benefits of prototype and special series production to be transferred to large-scale production. The goal is to adapt production times and qualities to customer requirements to the best degree possible. Motorsport naturally demands very short implementation times. Such as when there’s only one working week between two race weekends – that's when development and delivery have to be done as quickly as possible.

Since 2010, Prototechnik has been integrated into the Eberspächer Group as a technology center for lightweight construction. Motorsport places extreme demands on durability, performance and weight. Prototechnik has the knowledge and experience from around thirty years of motorsport and high-performance solutions to deliver important stimuli for the large-scale production activities of the Group. The company's competence – from building prototypes to producing special series – is based on this background in technology.

Although part of the Eberspächer Group, Prototechnik is an independent player on the market. We do, however, benefit from the extensive infrastructure of our parent company, which offers a company of our size unique possibilities.
