CT strengthens its presence in Germany with the acquisition of AST, a Software and Systems Engineering company.

The CT Engineering Group acquires AST Engineering, a German company specialized in integrated systems and software engineering in various areas, including the aerospace, rail, automotive and public sectors.

This acquisition increases the engineering and R&D&I competences of CT in Germany, improving its position in the market for its main clients.

The CT Engineering Group continues its growth in Germany through the acquisition of AST. With this operation, CT incorporates a team of engineers and PhDs specialized in the development of complex software systems. AST applies the latest agile methodologies used in software engineering, such as SCRUM to efficiently and reliably create safety critical software systems.

CT reinforces its presence in Germany where it already has various offices and a large team of engineers providing engineering services and R&D to Airbus Defence and Space, Airbus Helicopters and other companies, consolidating its position as one of the main European providers of high-tech engineering.

Jesús Prieto, President and CEO of CT, has highlighted the strategic importance of this acquisition. “We are the largest Spanish-based business group dedicated to product engineering services. Here at CT, we have developed a business model based on sustainable growth and internationalization, which allows us to provide our clients engineering from design to manufacturing to after-sales support. We are very proud to welcome our new colleagues to CT, and excited by the experience, capacities and clients that this team provides us.”

On behalf of AST Engineering, Dr. Tobias Lehmann has said that “integrating personnel, values and knowledge to CT will allow the new teams created to advance with great enthusiasm and commitment the group’s mission of offering innovative technological solutions that help our clients be more effective and competitive”.
