AUTO! - Network Partners

Since the competitive conditions have changed, cooperations in automotive networks have become a key factor for the participating stakeholders to maintain their leading position when it comes to innovative capability, quickness, flexibility, and cost reduction. In Saxony, such alliances are working together at different levels in order to meet these objectives even better now and in the future.

Saxony Automotive Supplier Network (AMZ)

The Saxony Automotive Supplier Network (AMZ) has been promoting the development of „Autoland Saxony“ since 1999. AMZ has made a vital contribution towards the fact that the primarily small and medium sized automotive suppliers in Saxony superbly master all elements of supplier management and that they have successfully established themselves in the global automobile value creation chains. For today’s challenges – innovation development, growth financing, globalization, shortage of skilled professionals –, AMZ has developed a number of new programs. Energy-efficient drive and propulsion systems, lightweight construction, generative components production, and „Smart Factory“ are the main topics from which AMZ generates pioneering projects in cooperation with Saxony’s engineering service providers and research institutions. With increased activities in the BRIC and ASEAN countries, for example, with a competence network in China, AMZ supports the market entry and development activities of Saxony’s small and medium sized enterprises.

Saxon Energy Agency – SAENA GmbH

As a competence center for electromobility and intelligent transport systems, the Saxon Energy Agency – SAENA GmbH coordinates the projects of the „Model Region Electric Mobility Saxony“ and accompanies the implementation of Saxony’s projects within the scope of the „Showcase Bavaria-Saxony ELECTRIC MOBILITy CONNECTS“ initiative. The approximately 40 projects, which have a total volume of about 130 million euros and include more than 100 partners, are aligned at the interface of electric vehicles, energy systems, and traffic concepts. Already today, the results are quite impressive: More than 50 mass-produced hybrid buses are commuting on regular bus lines in Saxony’s public transportation system. With more than 155 electric charging stations in the Dresden and Leipzig regions, it was already possible to expand the network so that it meets the current demand; and the network will be expanded further to keep pace with the increasing number of vehicles in the future.
