BUDAPEST

Our competence centre in Budapest is part of the Steering business unit, which accounts for the one-fourth of the steering columns for cars worldwide. Throughout the business unit and even the entire group, software development is done exclusively in our competence centre.

Our competence centre in Budapest was unique in its kind when it was established in 1999; three doctoral students came up with the idea, which caught the interest of the ThyssenKrupp group and led to the founding of the first R&D competence centre in Hungary. Our team has been developing electromechanical steering systems for almost 20 years. Originally employing three people, our centre currently has a staff of approx. 600 employees. Our competence centre in Budapest is part of the Steering business unit, which accounts for the one-fourth of the steering columns for cars worldwide. Throughout the business unit and even the entire group, software development is done exclusively in our competence centre.

More about us

We develop electronic steering systems that use electromotive assistance instead of the traditional hydraulic systems that constantly require energy. This provides exceptional reliability, reduces fuel costs, and enables a series of comfort functions (e.g., cross-wind compensation, lane keeping assist, parking assistance). Every one of our steering system models provides a unique steering experience that has been customised according to the needs of our customers. The development carried out in Budapest is unique within the thyssenkrupp company group, and has been a key factor in the success of the thyssenkrupp Steering business. We develop steering systems for automobile manufacturers including BMW, Daimler, and SGMW, General Motors' Chinese joint venture company. We are proud to say that millions of cars use our steering systems worldwide.
