Rücker NORD AB trades under the brand name of the new shareholder EDAG
From October 2014, the engineering company Rücker Nord AB, based in Gothenburg, has been trading under the name EDAG Engineering AB and now appears under the brand umbrella of the new shareholder EDAG Engineering AG.

EDAG Engineering AG works together with all well-known car manufacturers and system suppliers. This includes but is not limited to the development of complete modules, vehicles and versions, from industrial design to ready-to-drive prototypes as well as the production engineering - from planning to virtual commissioning.

At the location in Gothenburg, which was founded in 1959, more than 130 engineers work in the fields of body engineering (bodyshell, interior, exterior), mechanical engineering electric & electronics and in production engineering.
"In addition, our customers naturally have access to our global site network with its 8,000 employees and our interconnected engineering competence for vehicles and manufacturing facilities."
