Our Values and Philosophy

Guiding force behind our everyday work

Our business activity is based on the following central values:

Pioneering Spirit

Turning visions of the future into reality with courage and expertise. We have cultivated the ability to recognize important breakthrough targets early on and reach them ahead of the market. Because only the courageous look beyond the horizon and make discoveries that lead to outstanding innovations.

Customer Orientation

Our success can only be measured by that of our customers. True understanding of a customer and their needs, combined with experience and a global view, allows us to create innovative solutions. Expertly conceived, uniquely tailored and efficiently carried out – a shared success.

Problem-Solving Competence

It’s a demanding world. Focused research, cutting-edge technological developments and clear product orientation are fundamental requirements for global competitiveness. With multi-disciplinary teams, we offer expertise, creativity, innovative thinking and effective project management to support professional solutions.


Modern mobility represents progress only when its goal, its form and its requirements respect nature. Our work at AVL reflects a deep understanding of the responsibility we share for our society, for mankind and for the world’s achievements. We want to ensure that our world is one we can live in – now and in the future.


AVL is a company with personality. Embodied in Helmut List and reflected in our work. A personality rooted in a life-long pursuit of knowledge, characterized by a deep sense of responsibility and expressed in the company’s independent status.
