Quality is our top priority in all development work at the component, system or vehicle level, starting with the initial ideas, investigation in a virtual environment, testing of prototypes, components or functions, right through to testing and the start of production.
To maintain a high level of quality at all stages of the development process, we have invested in state-of-the-art workshop, testing and inspection facilities at our international locations. In our workshops, we meet automotive standards for information and data security.

We can also develop and build special test benches for you
Continental Engineering Services brings its automotive technology expertise and in particular its know-how in the field of vehicle electrification to the design and construction of special test benches.
"Customers also seek our support in the design and construction of special test benches in the automotive sector when no comparable product is available on the market and new functionality is needed," emphasizes Gregor Schmitt, Head of System Integration and Vehicle Testing in the Driveline & Electrification segment.
A particular important feature is CE certification, which ensures that special test benches comply with EU directives and related country-specific laws such as the German Product Safety Law (ProdSG).
