Advanced Car Technology Systems GmbH & Co. KG in Sailauf is the competence center for vehicle safety within the MAGNA Group. In one of the latest test centers worldwide, modular and functional systems are developed, simulated and tested.

During the last 18 years, ACTS has earned an excellent reputation as a reliable and flexible development partner in the field of passive vehicle safety. Quality and success are insured by competence in conjunction with years of experience.

At the Sailauf location (near Frankfurt am Main) ideal conditions have been created in order to provide vehicle safety for our customers also in the future:

Experienced engineers, modern measuring technology and various test facilities enable a wide range of products and services in the field of safety testing. This includes the crash technology, crash simulation technology, component testing, endurance and functional tests, environmental simulations as well as the development of test methods.


A special feature of ACTS is the own dummy laboratory. Dummy certification and maintenance as well as the rental of almost 40 dummies and sensors are only a part of the extensive dummy services. For all challenges fast and competent solutions can be offered.

In addition ACTS can be your partner for the planning of new testing laboratories or the conversion of existing test facilities. Herewith the employees of ACTS benefit from their years of experience as system operators. In trainings they pass on not only the  knowledge about test facilities, but also the necessary know-how about specifications and test executions to the training participants.

Since 2011 ACTS is a 100-percent subsidiary of Magna Steyr Engineering Germany. In 2015 Magna implemented a global corporate branding initiative aiming on simplicity, focus and clarity. All groups of Magna have the same company logo, standard e-mail addresses, business cards and advertising materials. The ACTS logo will be replaced by the Magna logo, but there will be no change of the company name.

Consequently ACTS GmbH & Co. KG is still your independent test laboratory, which represents itself in a new corporate design.
