In order to be able to react flexibly to the changing vehicle demands, the automotive-mv e.V. network is planning to establish sustainable and effective transformation structures including an automotive training network. In addition, an automotive transfer center for net-zero production is going to be established. The network is implementing a special project entitled "Automotive transformation strategy for sustainable value creation in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern", or "Autotrans-MV" for short, with the qualification provider REFA-Landesverband M-V e.V. and the University of Rostock, Chair of Production Engineering. Supported with 1.7 million euros from the German government, it will run until the end of June 2025. In the network, companies located in the state can increase their innovation competence and so strengthen their own competitiveness sustainably.
automotive-mv has 23 member companies with around 3,500 employees and 180 trainees. These companies generate annual sales of around 1.1 billion euros. One important founding objective was to make more effective use of the existing potential of small and medium-sized suppliers. automotive-mv solicits orders for companies in the state, provides advice and support for qualification and training, pools expertise, exchanges experience and is active in the Automotive Cluster East Germany (ACOD).
