Prototype Construction

Prototypes – Marketability Made by Kiekert

During development of optimum solutions, our prototype design ensures implementation of the construction idea in close-to-production prototypes. As a technology leader, we put all innovative concepts and products through the paces with our own prototypes - a process that often happens in cooperation with our customers. Whether door latch, liftgate latchsliding door or E-latch: Prototypes are the prerequisite for smooth function in the later routine of high-volume production. At our worldwide locations, we initiate developments, set trends and strive for continuous improvements. This is how we systematically prepare for future markets and series successors.
