Vehicle Body Development


Development process: always with an eye on the latest technologies

Vehicle body development is marked by future CO2 emissions limits, weight reduction in modern cars and aircraft, material expertise in composite materials, high-strength steel and aluminium and the latest developments in lighting and visibility. Bertrandt offers its customers competent and successful solutions for future challenges at an early stage. Our deep and broad spectrum of services in vehicle body development is based on our three core areas: Body-in-White, Exterior and Interior.

We pride ourselves on being a stable development partner and system integrator who can systematically improve the path from the initial idea to the final product.
