Company Profile

In the context of continuing market globalisation, design has become an increasingly important factor in the successful development of product and capital goods. In the conception of new products in times of ever more restrictive economical, ecological and legal conditions, design is a decisive factor contributing to the attractiveness and marketability and thus the success of your product.
IFS Design is the right partner for giving shape to innovative ideas and for designing your technical solutions to transform them with your collaboration into a successful, marketable product.
Through working on and realising a large number of projects, our company has been able to prove its expertise in solving complex design tasks on many occasions. These projects have endowed us with a wealth of experience and potential in design and technical fields.

International Projects

As well as projects in Europe, Australia, Africa and North America, since 2003 we have realised a great number of projects in Asia, principally in China. Since 2012, IFS Design has its own office in Changzhou (China), which gives us the significant advantage of having local nationals as staff and contacts on the spot.




Company History

IFS Design was established in 1997 as a spin-off of the Design Department of the Institute for Track-Guided Vehicles of the Deutsche Waggonbau AG (DWA).
