The core of the company in a new home / Material library of imat-uve moves to historic Monforts Quartier
New vehicle concepts emphasize the focus on innovative materials for lightweight construction, but simultaneously the interior design is met with more attention. Through innovations such as the autonomous driving "the experience in the interior" gets more important. Quality, sustainability, individuality are the keywords. imat-uve is familiar with the materials in the car and thus provides valuable support at the different approaches for both the automotive manufacturers and the suppliers.
The central element for imat-uve’s business is the material library. Here the areas of design, development and testing get into shape for the customer. imat-uve works at the interfaces and individually forms the teams of experts depending on the projects’ needs. For customers, the advantage is that they can benefit from the broad expertise and easy order processing. They do not not have to communicate with various service providers or departments, but get everything from one single source. Whether optimizing surfaces for the interior or developing the component parts the cooperation is always cross-departmental. The material library is one of the unique selling points of imat-uve. It combines a collection of innovative materials and surfaces with an abundance of material characteristics. With this, optimization processes or material substitutions can be managed easily.
In the premises of Quartier Monforts in Mönchengladbach, the former Monforts factory for textile machines, the material library has found a prestigious new home. Here a complete CMF lab has arisen where design, technical development and testing come together. The physical space of the material library in Mönchengladbach is open to visitors. It shall serve as a source of inspiration and as an inspirational place with its own "Playground", which is set up for creative processes and workshops. In addition, exhibitions and events are held about material topics.
