Development & Construction

Specialised tools are required to manufacture our Carbox, which our company has developed and constructed. Our employees in development work together closely with our customers. If a new car model comes into the workshop, Carbox can use its CAD (Computer Aided Design) data to develop a product or measure the car. "We can do both", explains Stefan Bellinger. "We can take measurements with the measuring tape and work with templates. Or we can use a computer to "build" a product into a car boot even though we might not have seen the actual car." And let's not forget, the Carbox not only needs to fit, it also needs to be able to be removed and inserted easily.

"That is not an easy task, and it is often a challenge for the employees responsible, to develop the right product while closely adhering with the customer's instructions. But if it were easy, everyone would be doing it. The more complicated the task, the better: this way we can showcase our abilities because we are better than all our competitors." And that is a fact: in 2009, Carbox was named as one of the 100 most innovative medium-sized companies in Germany and awarded the quality seal "TOP 100". TOP 100 has already been in existence for more than 20 years and is the only benchmarking for innovation management in Germany.

Carbox has a very high quality standard; the company has been certified in accordance with ISO 9001:2000 since 1993 and is one of the first in its industry and region to have been audited by Lloyd's Register (LRQA). Following 15 years of auditing, Carbox was awarded the gold medal by LRQA in 2008 with all departments.
