Czech Republic

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.
