INCHRON Announces its Incorporation as a Public Limited Company

Future secured for continued innovation of advanced timing analysis tools
to support highest complexity automotive applications

Erlangen, Germany, 9th March 2020

INCHRON AG, previously a private limited company, announced today that is has successfully completed incorporation to form a public limited company. This follows a successful round of investment for an undisclosed sum which will allow the organization to maintain its independence while continuing to innovate. Additionally, the company headquarters will be relocating from Potsdam to Erlangen, providing opportunity for the organization to broaden the portfolio of support services that will underpin its growing timing analysis software solutions for electrical automotive systems.

Formed in 2003 as a university spin-off, INCHRON has established itself as an innovative supplier of timing analysis tools. This has been recognized specifically by automotive OEMs and sub-suppliers who utilize these tools to resolve highly complex timing challenges in increasingly complicated electronic control units (ECU) efficiently. With the automotive industry progressively integrating more and more driver assistance and autonomous functionality into the vehicle, the demands on testing existing ECUs and planning the functionality of future ECUs is growing exponentially. The announced investment and related incorporation will enable INCHRON to develop the tools needed by their customers that enable them to overcome their technical challenges more rapidly.

“The past 16 years have seen the development of a fantastic, dedicated team that has continuously delivered services, training and tools into the hands of our customers that meet their exacting needs,” said Dr. Ralf Münzenberger, CEO and Co-Founder. “This next chapter in the story of INCHRON will provide us with the platform we need to continue to innovate for the benefit of our customers, as well as the wider needs of the automotive industry, and we look forward to continuing to be an essential element of functionally safe, innovative automotive technology.”
