Bertrandt AG

Bertrandt is one of the leading engineering service providers to the international automotive industry. With 3,000 employees at 19 sites throughout Europe and one in the United States, the company works closely with its original equipment manufacturer (OEM) customers to provide customised solutions ranging from individual components to modules and even complete vehicle derivatives.

The Challenge

To accommodate the ever increasing number of vehicle variants and shorter development times, Bertrandt needed to standardise its processes and to integrate its resources.

Dassault Systèmes Response

To meet the platform requirements of its customers and partners and to streamline product development, Bertrandt began the migration from CATIA V4 to CATIA V5 in 2001.


With CATIA V5, Betrandt has significantly reduced the Body-in-White design time for doors and closures, simplified how modifications are made and minimised incompatibilities.
