acv | company history and managing directors
acv was established more than 30 years ago; specifically in 1990 – by Georg Hollendung and Herbert Kasper. It all began with the sale of car radios (DIN-devices). Accessories, adapters, radio covers and cable sets were quickly added to the portfolio. When the warehouse and office space in Mönchengladbach began to burst at the seams, we built a new corporate building based on our own specifications in 1999. However, the demand for our products sold through our catalog and an online store, rose so quickly that our new warehousing operations eventually were too small and we had to add on to our storage space in 2003 as well as 2007.
When Thomas Landmesser joined the company in 2009, we expanded. We added the development and manufacturing of in-house products to our car-hifi-accessories range. The demand for tailor made, vehicle specific solutions exploded and as a consequence, we have a team of more than 6 employees working in product development. After all, products should not get stuck in the idea or drafting phase. Hence, we acquired a comprehensive fleet of machines for the manufacturing of both, prototypes and series products.
Today, our specialty retail sales and the development of customer specific solutions based on OEM standards work hand in hand.
Since the beginning of 2019 Axel Schürings is the new CEO and Head of Sales of acv.
