The activities of Desay SV in Mainaschaff and Antennentechnik Bad Blankenburg in Weimar have been merged into one company: Desay SV Automotive Europe GmbH. The headquarters of the merged company is in Weimar-Legefeld. The company employs almost 110 people.
Three core competencies at one location
"With this step, we want to leverage synergies and offer our customers integrated solutions based on our core competencies," explains Dr. Michael Weber, former managing director of Antennentechnik Bad Blankenburg GmbH and new managing director of Desay SV Automotive Europe GmbH. "At the Weimar location, we unite three technological core competencies under one roof: antenna technology, automotive electronics and automotive software". The brand Antennentechnik Bad Blankenburg will continue to stand for high-performance, reliable antenna solutions. And the Desay SV brand for sophisticated, customer-specific vehicle electronics and software solutions.
European headquarters and bridgehead for expansion
At the Weimar site, research, development and production were already closely interlinked. Over the next few years, a state-of-the-art research and technology campus for vehicle prototypes will also be created. The prelude is a development center that will be inaugurated in the first quarter of 2021. This will be followed by the construction of a test chamber for antennas for all types of vehicles. "Weimar will thus become the European headquarters of Desay SV and a bridgehead for expansion in Europe," says Dr. Michael Weber. "With the new organization and the significant future investments at the Weimar site, we are setting the course for growth“.
