Established in 1984 in Munich, in southern Germany DENSO now has its primary locations in Eching, an industrial area in northern Munich, and in Wegberg near Aachen. DENSO also has a number of Sales Offices located in Germany which are in Wolfsburg, Leinfelden-Echterdingen (close to Stuttgart), Mörfelden-Walldorf (close to Frankfurt a.M.) and Cologne.
In 2003 a car air-conditioner testing facility was opened in Eching creating the possibility to assess the performance of air conditioners installed in vehicles. Facilities include climatic chambers, acoustic chambers for components and vehicles, component test benches and a state of the art wind-tunnel. Prototypes are manufactured in-house and preparation work on vehicles and components can be done on-site as well. Eching is also the European material testing laboratory for DENSO and the base for our European Technical Research team.
In 2005 the Aachen Engineering Centre (AEC), located in Wegberg, opened with responsibility for power train development, especially diesel fuel injection and exhaust gas after-treatment systems. Since 2010 this Centre has started work on ECU hardware and software development as well as working on components for Electric Vehicle and Hybrid Vehicles. The AEC is a purpose built facility that is expanding its range of equipment that includes transient engine test beds, chassis dynamometers for emission testing, test benches for testing common rail pumps and injectors and the necessary workshops.
In 2015 we opened newly expanded facilities in Eching and Wegberg.
