Our mission

Moving the future

Everyone is mobile: Whether by car, bus, train or bicycle - we are all on the road every day. On the way to work, in leisure time or just for fun. Everything we do is about making everyday life better: getting from A to B faster and easier, protecting the environment, getting there safely and doing meaningful things along the way.

Whether with software solutions, electronics or by testing vehicles - we all work towards the same goal: making everyday life and mobility better, smarter, more sustainable and safer. For us, the user is always in the foreground: Our motivation is to understand the user and to improve their lives with our solutions.

Our roots

in-tech is an international company with Bavarian roots. The two founders, Bastian Friedrich and Christian Wagner, ventured into self-employment during their time at Munich Technical University. The first office was - very pragmatically - the former children's room of founder Christian Wagner.

Right from the start, the two engineers were committed to establishing a positive corporate culture. They had both previously done internships in major corporations - and wanted to create a different work environment: more welcoming, unconventional, dynamic and friendly.

Our corporate culture at in-tech reflects these values - we are "different" in the best meaning of the word: we emphasize good team spirit, openness to new ideas and a friendly, open working atmosphere.

We have already received several awards for our excellent working atmosphere, internal team spirit and excellent work-life balance. 

Our story

Within just a few years, in-tech has developed into a successful mid-sized company with offices in Germany, Austria, China, the Czech Republic, the UK, Romania, Spain and India.

We currently employ around 2100 people at locations in 8 countries. Our team consists mainly of engineers, software developers and technicians who deal with the diverse challenges related to the mobility of the future.

A lot has happened on the way from the first office in a former children's room to a globally active technology company - here are just a few milestones:

The beginnings

The story begins in 2002: Founders Bastian Friedrich and Christian Wagner are graduating from the Technical University of Munich with a degree in electrical engineering and have already acquired their first customers. In May, in-tech GmbH is founded, with a former kid's room being the first office.

First automotive customer

A first great breakthrough: As a start-up with just a handful of employees, in-tech wins BMW, the first major customer from the automotive industry. The team takes on its first projects in the area of electronic system integration and concentrates on further growth in this area.

Becoming an automotive specialist

In 2006, in-tech wins customer Audi, another premium manufacturer from the automotive sector, and establishes itself as a specialist for system integration. By now, the team consists of 22 employees, and the company moves to its first real office in Altomünster, Bavaria.

New offices

As an expert in system integration, in-tech continues to grow. More than 50 employees now work on projects for customers in the automotive sector. in-tech moves into new premises in Munich and Ingolstadt.

Launch of the in-tech Academy

Within one year, in-tech has almost doubled its workforce to almost 100 employees. In order to train the new colleagues, the company's internal training program "in-tech Academy" is launched. With Volkswagen as a customer, another important automotive customer is added.

"Great place to work"

in-tech is awarded the "Germany's Best Employer" seal for the first time. At the end of the year, the 200th employee joins the team.

New locations

The good reputation in the automotive industry pays off: in-tech secures Daimler as a customer. New locations in Ingolstadt, Böblingen and Leipzig follow. At the end of the year, around 250 employees work at in-tech.

Going overseas!

At the beginning of the year, in-tech crosses the big pond: the first foreign subsidiary is founded in Greenville (South Carolina), USA. At the end of the year, a branch is opened in Shenyang, China.

New industries

in-tech now has 680 employees and takes over the majority of the Wolfsburg-based software company c4c in order to strengthen its competencies in the area of software. In addition, two newly founded departments deal with solutions for "Smart Factory" and "Digital Train" and thus also address new industry sectors.

Invest in the future

Investor BDStar acquires part of in-tech's shares - the founders and managing directors Bastian Friedrich and Christian Wagner continue to hold shares and remain on board. in-tech invests in innovative projects in the fields of electromobility and smart mobility. In addition, a new location is opened in Brasov, Romania. In the middle of the year, in-tech passes the 1000 employee mark.

Strategic positioning

in-tech continues to invest in its strategic focus on the future of mobility: With the acquisition of powerline expert I2SE (now in-tech smart charging), the company's commitment to electromobility and charging infrastructure is strengthened. Tobias Wagner, brother of founder Christian Wagner, joins the management team together with Thomas Klaus.

e-troFit becomes independent

Around 1500 employees are now on the in-tech payroll worldwide. The e-troFit product which was launched as a pilot project becomes independent: The subsidiary e-troFit GmbH is established to bring the solution into series production.
