With the enlightening kick-off event from our hosts LKQ Corporation and STAHLGRUBER GmbH we started in our new successful year 2019! “Think over Digitization” was the topic of the event which took place in Ismaning (Munich) on January 10.

The IGNITION NIGHT’s program included many opportunities for nurturing ties with experts from the Independent Automotive Aftermarket and for networking with representatives from other industries such as medicine, science & the German start-up scene. About 200 guests and speakers attended this event, which serves as a platform for joint exchange of experiences and creation of digital business value.

Our Managing Directors Alexander Haid and JĂĽrgen Buchert as well as Head of Sales Gwenael de Calan were in good company with our shareholders and partners: Bosch, Continental, Hella, Mann+Hummel, MS Motorservice, OSRAM, Schaeffler, TecAlliance, Topmotive, Valeo and others. Partnership is key!
