Four companies, one competence
Development of the mobility of tomorrow

In a constantly evolving world where innovation drives progress, the future of propulsion technology plays a crucial role. The APL Group consists of four independent companies that work closely together to shape the mobility of tomorrow. We believe in the power of collaboration and that by pooling resources, knowledge and vision we can create synergies that are greater than the sum of their parts. In selected projects, we benefit from the expertise of our subsidiaries, and they can also rely on our strengths. Together we set new standards and open up innovative possibilities that would not be achievable alone.
