Corporate Technology Services

The Corporate Technology Services (CTS) department of HARTING Stiftung & Co. KG inspects the products to ensure their quality as an independent service provider for the entire HARTING Technology Group.

As a HARTING internal laboratory, we have both in-depth testing knowledge and knowledge of the products and their application markets. This enables us to provide competent advice on the test requirements for the different application markets.

The laboratory is accredited to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025: 2005 for testing of electro-mechanical components, fibre-optic and electronic transmission systems, geometries and material properties and for EMC testing for CE-mark certification.

The accreditation is valid only for the scope listed in the annex of the accreditation certificate D-PL-12148-01-00.

They assist with product development and product certifications, design innovative enabling technologies and provide technical consulting.

The independent business unit Corporate Technology Services has set the following goals: 

  • Conformity assessment, efficient and effective qualification of processes and products by providing measuring and testing technology, as well as technical expertise.
  • Support business units in order to accelerate product market launches by getting involved early in the development phase
  • Develop and implement innovations by cooperating with universities and research institutes
  • Support marketing by giving presentations and transferring knowledge to the customer
