ETAS York: Expertise pays off

Employees and guests in front of the new premises in York.

The York subsidiary has been a member of ETAS since 2003. Now, the specialists for embedded software solutions and safety consulting are breaking one sales record after another – and they have become an indispensable part of ETAS. At celebrations marking the subsidiary's ten-year membership of ETAS, Friedhelm Pickhard praised the York staff, saying that they distinguished themselves above all through their know-how and the quality of their work.

The anniversary celebration marking the subsidiary’s ten-year membership of ETAS took place in the new premises.

Above all, the ETAS President emphasized the staff's professionalism and professional ethics. Ten years ago it was expertise that motivated the takeover of the company originally called LiveDevices. Founded in 1999 as a spin-off of the University of York, the company quickly established itself as a leading provider of embedded software solutions for the automotive and industrial sectors. ETAS York still maintains close contact with the University of York to this day and employs many graduates of the university.

The colleagues in York face many positive changes: For instance, they have just moved into new offices. In addition to the staff of ETAS York and their General Manager Nigel Tracey, the anniversary celebrations at the new premises were attended by Bosch President Great Britain, Peter Fouquet, and Rolf Wahler, Vice-President Sales Great Britain. Together they presented the York colleagues with a sculpture by the British artist Kevin Wallhead: ‘The Ascent’ – a sculpture in glass, copper, and silver featuring two climbers hand in hand heading towards the sun. “Entirely appropriate for what we have in mind,” said York General Manager Nigel Tracey proudly.
