WHO WE ARE
Since 1997 we are a technical service provider and a business partner for automobile manufacturers.
ESTABLISHED IN SINGAPORE. ENGINEERED WORLDWIDE
From 1 to 280 in no time at all: Frank Beuler started his one-man company as a technical consultant for a German vehicle manufacturer in South-East Asia. In 1997, he settled his company in his city of residence at that time, the dynamic metropolis of Singapore, and has since acted as a technical service provider and partner of German OEMs the world over.
Making engineering history
Today, our group of companies employs more than 280 people and provides engineering services around the world. In 2011, VadoTech Pte. Ltd. was founded in Singapore after restructuring. Our subsidiary VadoTech Japan KK also offers clients support for testing – specially tailored to the needs of the Japanese market. In our group of companies, VadoTech Deutschland GMBH has global responsibility for the areas of recruiting, onboarding, marketing, education and training – at the Berlin location since 2013.
59 million kilometers through Europe
With Vista Servicios de Logística S.L., we offer clients at several locations in Europe complete support: both as an test center operator and through the support of individual projects outside of our own locations. Part of the daily business is building testing structures and processes, allocating infrastructure, technical support, driving staff and the organization of inspection & demonstration runs. Result: Since 2006, we’ve driven some 59 million km just in Europe – that’s 1,500 times around the world. And it keeps going – with the subsidiary OOO Vista Servicios RUS, we as a reliable partner are offering on-location testing in Russia all year round.
And 15 million kilometers across China
Since 2011, we’ve traversed China a staggering 680 times. That’s because Zynit Co. Ltd. was specially founded to support technology testing in the Chinese market. And we’re currently supporting OEMs across China at four locations and helping them adapt their technologies for market-specific requirements.
In our test center near Beijing, we as a site operator are responsible for both infrastructure and technical support for the test vehicles.
We only want one thing. The very best quality
We support our clients with vehicle testing by ensuring quality for the latest innovations and technologies in the overall driving system and taking it to the series production phase. We’re familiar with the future-oriented automotive topics in innovation and mobility and are proud to be able to offer every client the complete spectrum of services for comprehensive vehicle testing. We consider the different cultures of our global enterprise to be a wonderful opportunity to learn from one another. The result is a highly motivated environment that both supports and challenges our employees. That doesn’t just sound really good. It is really good.
What makes us special: The people we can rely on
Aside from our passion and strong personal commitment, our employees offer a fascinating variety of professional qualifications. We use this potential to constantly advance developments for our clients. The most important factor is and remains our capacity to react and adapt. That’s because our employee commitment is simply invaluable and in particular our timing. The greatest degree of flexibility and the ability to think for ourselves set us apart from the rest.
Our vision: Your success story
We are a modern, future-oriented and economically stable company. Our vision is to be a reliable partner in the process of vehicle development. Together with our clients, we design the future with responsibility and competence.
