VOSS & RWTH: Progress through cooperation
Strategic partnership with commitment to visionary thinking and acting
Upon establishing a key account at RWTH Innovation in November 2020, the VOSS Group is now en route to intensify their innovative research and development projects in Aachen within a strategic partnership with RWTH Aachen University.
NRW-based group with international CUSTOMERS and long history of innovation
With 6,000 employees in 13 countries, the group of companies is a leading supplier of high-quality products in the field of fluid management with an international clientele in automotive and mechanical engineering. VOSS develops and manufactures customer-specific, ready-to-install line systems and connection components made of metal and plastic as well as ready-to-install modules consisting of valves, sensors and integrated application-specific components. From the start, the development of innovative technological solutions at VOSS was driven by the idea that social and corporate responsibility should be translated into a commitment to future-oriented action.
Future-oriented action through collaboration with excellent research
When it comes to implementing corporate responsibility through future-oriented action, collaboration is key. VOSS is already involved in various research fields in Aachen and at the RWTH campus. On the one hand, VOSS joined forces with the Forschungsgesellschaft Kraftfahrwesen mbH Aachen (FKA) to create the basis for future solutions. On the other hand, two employees of the VOSS Incubator, in cooperation with the INC Invention Center, are looking for new fields of innovation that lie outside the existing core business. The Hans Hermann Voss Foundation (sole shareholder of the VOSS Group) supports various research projects at RWTH Aachen University as well as scholarships for outbound students.
The new strategic partnership between VOSS and RWTH is operationally managed by RWTH Innovation GmbH within the framework of a key account. This is intended to strengthen the visibility of VOSS as a competent source of know-how in the region and thus ensure that VOSS is perceived as a contact partner for research and development projects. Relevant trend topics are identified for VOSS at an early stage in order to leverage the cooperation potential in the RWTH ecosystem. The industry knowledge and production power of the VOSS Group paired with the excellent research and interdisciplinary approaches at RWTH Aachen University present a promising joint effort to address new challenges with innovative technologies.
We are delighted to welcome VOSS as our new strategic partner and keen to watch the partnership come to life.
