20 Years at ARRK Engineering

Congratulations on 20 years working for ARRK Engineering to our Passive Safety Area Manager, Claudius Brix!

What makes working at ARRK Engineering so special for you?

Working for ARRK was my very first job, after graduating from university. As a student, I worked and studied partly in Asia, so my initial plan was always to start in an international company, too.

In 2002, I might not have believed to stay in my first company for over 20 years now. Why did I?

Working at ARRK still feels like working in a family business, yet at the same time we became the international company that I intended to join, initially. That is what makes it special to me.

You are the area manager for Passive Safety. Can you describe what you do in a few key points?

In Passive Safety we do …

  • Manage turn key safety projects
  • Passive safety concepts and robust designs
  • Structural crash
  • Occupant safety
  • Pedestrian Protection
  • Child Safety
  • Testing & Validation
  • Homologation & Certification
  • CAE Characterization of crash materials in ARRK material laboratory

or in short as we say on social media:“we keep your loved ones safe” :-)

What are the challenges in your field?

Safety in the mobility business is a truly universal value. So what does it mean?

Society, now more than ever, is not willing to compromise on safety when it comes to mobility. This is a universal value, across all market trends, forms of mobility or cultures worldwide.

The goal to achieve maximized safety in mobility, remains our goal. Now, and in the future.

What is your area contributing to the car of the future?

When we talk about cars of the future, within the two main global trends of electric mobility and higher levels of automated driving, the topic of safety is not to be compromised.

These trends reveal even new challenges with respect to safety issues – challenges we have to face and where we provide solutions for our customers.

Engineering@ARRK is for you?

Working in a dynamic and exciting environment. Going through good and hard time together. Having a strong and globally operating shareholder Mitsui at our side. Taking an active part in shaping ARRK Engineering’s future.
