About serienreif

Portrait of the company

Serienreif GmbH & Co. KG has a flexible team with over ten years of experience in the development, design and management of vehicle construction projects.

For a number of years our developers have been supporting the design and manufacturing processes of well known vehicle manufacturers - you have probably already driven a car yourself co-designed by us.

Starting with Wolfgang Podleiszek, the company's founder, Serienreif now has an extensive pool of specialists in the fields of project development, design and project management.

Regardless of the stage of the design process at which you bring us on board: Serienreif is a practically orientated and experienced development partner to have on your side.

What we stand for

Serienreif stands for certified first class technical design and project assistance. Our knowledge - your gain. With every project we keep an eye locally on the budget requirements and how to streamline production.

Customer satisfaction and adhering to the budget are our priorities.

In addition to this we place special value on intelligently and efficiently organising our procedures in order to fully put our mutual targets into practice on schedule.


Core Values

Our company's core values were jointly defined by employees and management at a two-day workshop. Each person (anonymously) assigned certain qualities to colleagues, which we then grouped under headings. The resulting 5 core valves do not merely reflect wishful thinking or long-term goals, rather they describe how we work together and what values set us apart – both as a company and as individual members of staff.

Our core valves help us to continually reflect on our own actions and improve them. They form a basis for appointing new members of staff and future expansion of our team. And they also enable customers to identify common values and get to know our team even ahead of the initial contact.



This was defined by the entire team as our company's most important core value and highlights our staff's outstanding communication expertise when cooperating in a team and when dealing to customers.
It is crucial for us to act in a friendly, professional and solution-orientated manner in all situations. Each and every member of the team can rely on the support of colleagues at all times. Knowledge, skills and experience are made available to others and solutions developed jointly. ?Qualities that have led to this core value: kindness, positive thinking, communication, willingness to help.

A willingness to deal with new situations, find alternative solutions and expand our own knowledge and experience is a core quality of all employees of our company. Whether new topics, component groups, customers, technologies or industries – we are open to expanding our horizons.
Qualities that have led to this core value: interest, willingness to learn, openness, open-mindedness, enthusiasm, adventurousness, curiosity.

Situations occur almost every day in project work, which require more than just technical knowledge. Solving these situations professionally means appearing calm and competent, acting as a reliable partner, discussing issues objectively and always having the solution to a problem in sight.
Qualities that have led to this core value: competence, reliability, professional appearance, calm and assertive appearance, quick ability to understand, precise work ethic, diplomacy, target-focus.

Each and every member of staff is more than the role that he or she has in our company. That is why we place great importance on regular exchanges and feedback between the management and staff, on joint agreements within the team, on mutual support in staffing bottlenecks or in difficult situations and on an honest and friendly way of dealing with each other. It is crucial that we also adopt this attitude towards our customers.
Qualities that have led to this core value: excellent social skills, an ability to listen, empathy, understanding, humanity.

A common base of trust is regarded by all employees as a prerequisite for cooperation with colleagues and customers. We will be unable to develop constructive solutions and successfully bring projects to their completion without the conviction that everyone acts honestly within the team.
Qualities that have led to this core value: honesty, trust, conscientiousness, integrity, seriousness, awareness of responsibility.

How we work

"Designs are born of ideas, and integration follows - every step is an exciting challenge. The highpoint, however, is finally seeing the component in the vehicle... working exactly how you intended it to."
Wolfgang Podleiszek

From the first discussions to the finished product, we pay attention to intelligently and efficiently organising the procedures. For you and our shared projects, this means targets are met comprehensively and on schedule.

To this end, we work with flexible project management systems and transparent communication structures. All procedures are set out in detail with our customers and reliably adhered to so that they can be seamlessly incorporated into current projects.
