APL – Passion becomes drive

For more than three decades, APL GmbH, based in Landau, has been developing the drive systems of the future in close cooperation with customers from the automotive, aviation and mineral oil industries as a reliable development partner with the vision of shaping the mobility of tomorrow through innovative technologies and sustainable solutions.

Of the APL Group’s 1,700 highly qualified and motivated employees, around 1,200 work at APL GmbH and use state-of-the-art test benches and development tools every day. These include almost 200 engine, transmission, drivetrain and chassis test benches, battery cell, battery module and battery pack test benches as well as the new fuel cell and H2 combustion engine test bench.

Coupled with innovative development tools, test methods and complete solutions for test benches and measuring devices, we provide our customers with the highest quality in powertrain development and validation.

Taking the value chain into account, APL’s development portfolio includes not only design and simulation but also the development and calibration of exhaust aftertreatment systems and electrification strategies as well as the optimisation of all emission-relevant influences and parameters under real driving conditions – an optimised complete solution for every technical issue.
