    Production Unit Manufacturing

    The production forms what we call the heart of our company. In the production unit, all sensors and components are assembled under highly sensitive hygienic conditions.

    Modern Offices

    We have modern offices equipped with electric desks, ergonomic office chairs, and that certain feel-good atmosphere.

    New Construction in Progress

    Soon there will be a new building here. We’re adding another floor and expanding the building forward to provide even more offices for future colleagues.

    Solar Cells with 65kWp of Bio-Electricity

    Thanks to our extensive solar system, we independently generate energy for our electric vehicle fleet, leading to a significant reduction in our ecological footprint. Sustainability? It’s a given for us!

    Our Heart and Soul

    Of course, it’s: Our coffee machine! Eversys combines the benefits of a fully automatic coffee machine with the authenticity of traditional espresso makers. A dream for every coffee break!

    Charging Stations for Electric Cars

    Our AT fleet now comprises numerous vehicles. Among others, we have Teslas and Polestar represented, which transport our colleagues “greenly” from A to B.

    Lunch in the Garden

    Under our apple tree, we enjoy our lunch break outdoors with the necessary “garden-feeling” when the sun shines. This makes the food taste twice as good!

    Pure Nature

    Our AT rabbit always hops familiarly across our courtyard, enjoying our homely ambiance. We’ve even been graced with the presence of deer. And all this right in the middle of the industrial area!

    Job Bike Shed

    For those who use the bike for commuting, we naturally provide a suitable shelter for the bicycles. By the way, at AT we also offer the option of a job bike!
