HELLA is now building a state-of-the-art testing laboratory in the Ostrava region.
HELLA is a global manufacturer of lights and electronic components for cars. In addition to manufacturing capabilities and an R&D centre, HELLA is now building a state-of-the-art testing laboratory in the Ostrava region. The lab will be located at CTPark Ostrava Hrabová, where advanced machines will be simulating the real-life operating environment of HELLA products throughout their entire life cycle.
“Back when we were building our R&D centre, we’d already chosen Ostrava for its strong tradition of technical education and talented people who have the will to transform the region into an innovation centre. The new laboratory will be used by our R&D centre for testing products that will then go straight from our production plants to car manufacturers throughout Europe to be used in their latest models,” says Karel Bill, Development Director of Hella Autotechnik Nova.
“CTP builds modern industrial premises of the highest standard. They are versatile and suitable for any kind of business, including the establishment of sophisticated facilities such as the HELLA laboratory. In this particular case, we also had to arrange for the alteration and construction of internal equipment in cooperation with the contractors in record time. We were successful and the first stage of the project has been handed over for use. We plan to complete the second stage at the turn of the year,” says Vojtěch Peřka, who is responsible for the Mora-vian-Silesian region at CTP.
