When BMW Motorsport continues on its skyward-bound 2013 campaign to defend all three titles, Guinness Book record-holding Bavarian company Zollner Elektronik AG becomes an appropriate “Official Partner” with the Munich outfit, as Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt welcomed them on board for their DTM collaboration: “The end of one season marks the start of the next. BMW and Zollner have already been working successfully together for a long time. As such, I am confident this partnership in the DTM will also be beneficial for both sides.”

Johann Weber, CEO of Zollner Elektronik AG, was incredibly excited at the prospect of working alongside BMW in a racing series of this size, which helps the relationship between both companies to flourish even further, as the two have been working together on current partnerships: “Like all those involved at BMW Motorsport, we are obviously also looking forward to the start of the season at the Hockenheimring on 5th May 2013. BMW and Zollner share a passion and talent for hi-tech, innovation and top-class products. We are hoping for a successful season, just like 2012.”

From such small beginnings in 1965, founded by Manfred Zollner, it has since become a globally known and well established company that now has 8,000 employees stationed in 16 locations around the world. It may be a publicly owned institution, but it is still, to this day, 100% owned by the family, which has not turned on its regional history within the local area.

Zollner Elektronik AG continues in its fine tradition of moving forward, when it comes to research and development in the field of mechatronics, which has helped the company to diversify into fields such as aviation, railroad and medical technology, not forgetting data processing and industrial electronics. This ensures that the company does not detract on its core value of keeping quality at its highest, which maintains its position as one of the best and broadest EMS suppliers in the business.

This has also resulted in numerous awards for the company, as a result of such fastidious handiwork, which looks to be a good companion to the future of a long-term partnership with the “Ultimate Driving Machine” from 2013 onwards. So Bruno Spengler, Martin Tomczyk and the rest of the BMW drivers will have a great ally when racing starts again in Hockenheim on the 5th of May…
