Automotive really appeals to the imagination. It may seem that the Netherlands hardly has a car industry, because its own big brands, such as Germany, France and Italy, are lacking.
Well-known players in the Dutch automotive industry are DAF and Nedcar. In addition, there are about 300 companies that are suppliers to the automotive industry and many export to Germany, Asia and the US. The Helmond region is the hotspot for the automotive industry where suppliers, research institute TNO and an Automotive Campus are located.
In the Netherlands, both the private sector and the Universities are innovating more and more jointly with the car manufacturer, as a result of which they have acquired a strong competitive position.
ALTEN is active in the Netherlands for the well-known brands, but also for the suppliers in the field of (car) navigation systems and in research and applications in the field of autonomous driving.
