This year will be a special one for the AZT: In 1971, Professor Max Danner founded the Institute of Automotive Technology - today's AZT Automotive GmbH - under the umbrella of the already existing Allianz Center for Technology. Our company can look back on a history that now spans 50 years and we are celebrating our anniversary this year.
