The foundation stone for our company was already laid in 2006 when we listened as five prospective engineers to a lecture at the university about the emerging trend of Formula Student. For the international design competition from the USA for students, the participating student teams should present a complete package for a racing car. This consisted of a functioning design concept, race performance, financial planning and quick-witted sales arguments. After four years, the first electric racing car was created at Zwickau University as part of this teamwork.
One year later we founded our first company in Zwickau - HERMS technologies GmbH and focused on prototype development in the automotive industry. This included the development of electronic components that will be used in the Le Mans Audi R18, rally champion VW Polo WRC and the BMW M6 GT3.
Based on a project with a well-known bicycle manufacturer and our experience, we founded Pendix GmbH in 2013, developed the Pendix eDrive and launched our first series product on the market in summer 2015. Since then we have concentrated on the further development and marketing of our Pendix products both in Germany and internationally. With 40 employees, we have a strong and highly motivated team of specialists in product development, marketing and production.
