Invensity acquires US company Whistler

German technology and innovation consulting company expands into the USA

Frank Lichtenberg: “A union of German automotive and American digital technology”

Wiesbaden, Germany, February 4, 2016 – The European technology and innovation consulting company Invensity (www.invensity.com) has acquired the US firm Whistler Consult Inc., which is headquartered in Wilmington. Whistler Consult Inc. will be renamed Invensity Inc. and will open a second office in Detroit. Fabian Koark has been appointed head of the US business. A principal consultant, he has managed international projects for Invensity in China and the USA since 2013.

“By expanding into two locations in the USA at once, we’re moving on from our European roots and are turning our attention towards the world market,” explains Frank Lichtenberg, Director of Invensity. The company is well represented in Germany with offices in Düsseldorf, Wiesbaden, Stuttgart and Munich, and already serves a range of renowned international organizations. “Establishing our own offices in the USA is the next logical step in our development,” explains Lichtenberg.

Founded in Germany, Invensity has many years of dedicated experience in a large number of globally relevant innovative fields, including the automotive, transportation, aerospace, energy, medical engineering, optical technologies and telecommunications industries. The company will gradually introduce this entire portfolio of specializations to the USA.

Invensity’s US operations will begin, however, by focusing on the automotive sector. “The automotive industry is facing a period of fundamental technological advances, and we are supporting a number of companies to overcome this challenge,” comments Lichtenberg, explaining that, “Connected transport infrastructure, driverless cars and e-mobility are together paving the way for a new generation of mobility. We see ourselves as consultants and advisers who are steering our clients through these developments, and whose union of German automotive knowledge and American software expertise will play a key role in our clients’ success.”
