KRATZER AUTOMATION AG: New Location in Silverstone, United Kingdom

  • KRATZER AUTOMATION strengthens presence at strategically important location
  • Customers in the motorsport region between London and Birmingham benefit from the proximity and direct cooperation with the test bench specialist
  • Part of the company's long-term growth strategy


KRATZER AUTOMATION AG opens an office for the Test Systems business unit in Silverstone Park in direct proximity to the famous Silverstone Circuit race and test track. With the new location, the company will intensify its presence within the technology and development cluster between London and Birmingham.

KRATZER AUTOMATION's Test Systems division develops integrated test bench solutions for the development departments of the automotive industry. The company covers a multitude of different vehicle components - from engines, turbochargers and transmissions to batteries, fuel cells and complete drive trains of sustainable drive concepts. KRATZER AUTOMATION supplies test bench technology and software from a single source and adapts each complete system to the customer's individual development and test requirements.

Proximity to customers and partners from the automotive industry, especially motor sports with its basic developments, has long been part of the corporate strategy at KRATZER AUTOMATION. The company is expanding its presence worldwide in all important centers of the automotive industry. The new location in the vehicle development and motor sport region around Silverstone takes this into account and is already geared towards further growth.

"Silverstone Park was an obvious location for us for several reasons," says Uwe Krummenoehler, Member of the Board of Management responsible for Test Systems at KRATZER AUTOMATION. "On the one hand, the region has long been a major center for automobile racing. Important customers from motor sports and automotive development have their development centers in the surrounding area. On the other hand, the location between London and Birmingham is a statement for our future commitment in the UK. But that's not all: we are gradually reducing the physical distance to our customers. As a result, both sides benefit from direct accessibility and cooperation. For us, the Silverstone Park location is another visible result of our long-term growth strategy. As a company, we will continue to increase our presence there and also create jobs where our customers can be found. In Germany, in Europe and of course worldwide."

The office in Silverstone Park will start operations in March and can be reached at the following address:

Silverstone Park Innovation Centre
Suite 3 Second Floor
Silverstone, Towcester NN12 8GX
