• About us

We use the power of synergy

Since we were founded back in 1997, we have been accompanying our customers in numerous projects in after sales, automotive electronics as well as sales and offer consulting and implementation services in technology, logistics and digital business. 

This enables us to bundle our know-how in a way that our customers profit from our interdisciplinary teams and group-wide synergies. In addition to professional expertise and years of experience in projects for well-known clients, we are united by some special values: responsibility, competence and passion.

For business processes in an increasingly complex world, continuous innovation is like renewable energy. But it does demand a dedicated eco-system within the organization. We build that system together with our customers as well as working closely with higher education and research institutions. We offer know-how in innovative technologies and design specific relevant solutions.

STAR Mission Statement

Passionately committed to providing services

We are passionately committed to providing services, we are more innovative than the market, develop solutions for niches, utilize synergies and we start small to achieve big things. Our customers are able to concentrate on their core business, we handle everything else for them. We always focus on quality, time and cost.

Our single-source services combine the strategic goals of our customers with operational implementation. We not only deliver concepts and solutions on paper, we put them into practice, too. Efficient and according to predefined cost and quality criteria.

That is why we not only invest heavily in internal innovation management, but also in developing key competence fields for the future.
