Our engineers and designers invent the technologies of the future
When manufacturers of cars, aircraft, or other technologies need advice, they come to us.
With more than 500 people, we cooperate with leading technical universities in the Czech Republic and are a well-known and sought-after employer of choice. We provide internships and long-term student part-time jobs to both students and graduates and train new generations of talented technicians.
While others lose direction, we offer solutions. We specialize in developing, testing and establishing the production of modern transport equipment, drive units and transmissions, control systems and software solutions, and will continue to do so. The services of our consultants and experts focus on the demands of large industrial companies, as well as on developing tailor-made solutions for small and medium-sized companies that require a combination of high engineering skill and workforce agility.
We bring together innovative ideas from the best Czech technical universities with the involvement of innovators, adding our unique engineering know-how to AKKA’s global offering.
A Daimler subsidiary under the name Mercedes Benz Engineering was established in Prague. Its core mission was to provide Daimler development centers with engineering services, i.e. product, component, system and tool development services. Later, Mercedes Benz Engineering was renamed MBtech Bohemia and became part of the German MBtech Group, at that time also owned by Daimler.
Because we also want to produce what we develop, we founded the Prototyping Center in Pilsen in 2004. Here, masterpieces are made: prototypes. The Pilsen Center is unique in our whole group.
A 65% stake in MBtech Group was acquired by the pre-eminent French company AKKA Technologies, one the world's leading service providers in automotive, aerospace, defense and transport industries. Daimler retained 35%.
In September 2018, this stake was sold to AKKA technologies that became 100% owner of MBtech.
