Our Core Values
At CES, engineering is the intersection of technology and passion. All our employees share four mutual corporate values: Trust, Passion To Win, Freedom To Act, and For One Another. They fundamentally underlie CES’s endeavors to close the gap between ideation and innovation. We are convinced that only in an environment shaped by those values can the difference be made.
Since 2006, Continental Engineering Services (CES) has been active worldwide as an independent provider of comprehensive engineering services, primarily in the automotive industry.
As true now, as ever, what sets us apart is the perfect mix between people and technology; our engineers possess extensive know-how, diverse creativity, and exceptional dedication. We also have access to Continental’s entire technology portfolio, which in turn equips us with a full stack of capabilities under one roof from design to manufacture.
Our people are therefore empowered to leverage the flexibility and speed of small and dynamic engineering teams combined with the strength of an international market-leader. Customers benefit from collaborating with the team that builds the product from start to finish, resulting in a seamless transition from development to production and thus granting customers first-mover advantages.
Passion to win
It takes more than just robust technological capabilities to realize a novel idea.
At CES, we refuse to settle with “being good enough” and instead embrace “what the best can be.” That is the kind of disruptive thinking embedded in our DNA. Pushing boundaries and re-defining industry paradigms is our way of life. And that is what CES would like to show the world: we are up for the biggest challenges, no matter how impossible they may seem, and turn them into tangible solutions.
We cherish the role that we each play to innovate and push the world forward.
Freedom to act
The primary impetus that drives our ambitious, creative engineers to practice their art is the ability to build and create with little restriction. We are convinced that great ideas can be originated both from the office and from home. Our passionate talent CES enjoys tremendous flexibility in scheduling their work while remaining fully responsible for the work and timing of their quality.
The emphasis of our activity is in automotive electronics, drive and chassis technology, as well as electric mobility. With the freedom to create, we are also experienced in adapting automobile technologies into a broad spectrum of industrial applications.
Our scope of services ranges from the consultation of concept studies up to the realization of prototypes and small series. With the responsibility for the creation, we unfailingly control quality throughout the whole development process to honor our commitment to superior quality.
For one another
Innovation is not limited by geography or language, and neither are innovators. CES’s talents come from all races and nationalities. We believe in the power of individual minds working in collective efforts and sharing the same values. It is the fuel that enables ordinary people to achieve extraordinary outcomes.
Diversity and inclusion enable us to look at challenges from many different angles to derive the best solutions.
The diverse knowledge and skill set of our engineers, our ability to adapt, and our innovation-driven thinking allow us to provide our customers with established mass-production technology, enabling applications and small series production to be achieved efficiently and economically.
