After being unable to meet for a long time due to the COVID pandemic, we are very pleased that the #ADIT Steering Committee was finally able to meet again in person this year.πŸ€— We were very glad to welcome our esteemed colleagues from Bosch as well as our colleagues from DENSO, who came all the way from Japan. Of course, it was also a great pleasure to see our Japanese ADIT colleagues and finally meet them in person again.πŸ‡―πŸ‡΅πŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺ There was an exciting exchange among the participants and many important topics could be discussed.πŸ“ŠπŸ“ˆ Of course, a small social program could not be missing and since the meeting was held in Stuttgart this year, everyone drove together to the Motorworld Group Stuttgart, where many special vehicles could be admired and a small race could be held on the racing simulator.🏎🚘 Many thanks to all participants and we look forward to next time!πŸ‘‹

Finally after the 2 years break due to Covid19 situation, last week we had our ADIT Summer Social event in person again!😊🌞 We enjoyed a gathering with our colleagues and their families with many different activities for all ages: archery, paint ball and fun space for kids. Of course we had as well a challenge tournament to build teams and compete for the winning prizeπŸ’ͺ. At the end we had a great buffet dinner and enjoyed the summer weather with cold drinks. A memorable event!❀️

It is time to say goodbye. πŸ‘‹ After more than 6 successful years at ADIT, we are saying goodbye today to our Managing Director Ken Yaguchi.πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’Ό He will be taking on an exciting new role at DENSO and is therefore expected to continue working with ADIT to some extent.😊 Dear Yaguchi-san, we thank you for many wonderful years; for your expertise as well as for your personal commitment.πŸ’ During your time at ADIT, the company portfolio was expanded, new projects were landed and even two new locations in Tokyo and Stuttgart were opened.

Unfortunately, home office is still the order of the day for us, but that doesn’t stop us from having fun together.πŸ€— On Friday, we arranged to play a virtual Escape GameπŸ‘€ and, in a total of 9 teams, took on the investigation of a murder case, interrogated witnesses and deciphered clues.πŸ•΅β€β™€οΈπŸ•΅ We can now confidently say that we have some top investigators at ADIT.πŸ’ͺ It was really a lot of fun and great to be together again in a relatively large group, at least virtually. πŸ₯³ Many thanks to everyone who took part!

More space for ADIT Stuttgart: Close cooperation with our mother companies through small distances is key to the success of a joint-venture company such as ADIT. In order to further strengthen our bounds with the new Bosch cross-domain software divison β€œXC”, we have also started a β€œneXt Chapter” and moved our Stuttgart offices to the vivid Stuttgart-Feuerbach area. Besides modern spacious offices, our employees now benefit from the improved local infrastructure such as restaurants and grocery stores and, of course, better public transport. Feel free to drop by in our new home in Burgenlandstraße 44 (building Fe056, B wing, first floor). We are looking forward to having a coffee with you. β˜•β˜Ί

We warmly welcome Kurt Gieske as the new Managing Director of ADIT GmbH in Germany and new President of ADIT Corporation in Japan!

Now he is returning to ADIT to face this new and exciting challenge. Dear Kurt, we wish you continuous success πŸ€and are looking forward to the upcoming cooperation within ADIT!πŸ’
