Promotech - Completing Innovations

Mission statement

We are the specialist partner for the automotive industry.

Since 1995 Promotech has been successfully focusing on contact components for the automotive industry. We even peaked our specialization – in the best sense of the word! – by becoming world market leader for contact components for parking sensors and one of the leading companies worldwide in the development and serial production of metal punchings and hybrid components for the automotive industry.

Modern technologies are absolutely indispensable for technical progress. However, equally indispensable is the human spirit, the expertise of experienced engineers and the courage to implement innovative ideas. The combination of all the aforementioned qualities is what makes our business so fascinating and what represents at the same time the driving force for our success:

Promotech acts as partner for the leading contact component suppliers of the world. From concept to serial production.

We understand our customers.

We have a deep understanding for the needs of our customers – their ambition to develop new solutions, to make cars safer, more comfortable and more environmentally friendly.

We know our craft inside out.

Electronics represent the most essential pacemaker when it comes to continuously improving the quality of cars. The secret force behind each individual electronic component is human innovative spirit, expertise and work power. Our employees know their craft inside out. From concept to serial production.

We count on our employees.

Our teams are technically highly qualified, efficient and motivated. The need for creation and dissemination of expert knowledge is self-evident for our employees: In our capacity as approved apprentice trainers, we foster the potentials of our young talents thus ensuring the future of our enterprise.

We count on long-term partnerships.

Our suppliers make a substantial contribution to the quality of our products. Therefore, we demand the same high quality standards from them as from ourselves.

By means of environmental protection and sustainability we safeguard our future.

With the help of systematic maintenance and service of machinery and production plants we aim at saving both energy and material resources. Vocational training courses and a steady flow of information enhance the motivation and the environmental awareness of our employees, which, in turn, is something also our customers benefit from.
