“Performance is important, but appreciation is equally important. People must enjoy their work!” - Massimiliano Cava, Managing Director of Da Vinci Engineering GmbH
For us, the connection between professionalism and an Italian/familial corporate culture is not a superficial façade, but an authentic reflection of our history and our values. It gives Da Vinci that special something, and allows us to be a highly motivated team which is committed and passionate about meeting our customers' needs and developing innovative solutions.
How we became who we are.
Since the company was founded, we have grown from humble beginnings to become a leading automotive engineering services company. Our history is one of innovation, passion and the tireless pursuit of excellence.
Foundation of Da Vinci Engineering
Managing Director Massimiliano Cava, originally from the province of Salerno in Italy, studied electrical engineering in Naples. On the search for new challenges, he was drawn to Brunswick during his studies. It was a bumpy ride to start with in Germany: He didn't speak any German, and he didn't last long in his first job in Lippstadt because “there was no passion at work”. After working at various companies such as Magneti Marelli and smart, he founded Da Vinci Engineering, an engineering services company, in 2005.
Relocation to Stuttgart-Vaihingen
In 2006, the to Stuttgart-Vaihingen took place, where Da Vinci's first office was established. Due to increasing demand, more engineers and test drivers were appointed, and an additional office was soon opened near Magneti Marelli. Thanks to this expansion, Da Vinci was able to employ around 20 people in the areas of recruitment, sales and IT in 2007.
Move to downtown Stuttgart
Da Vinci Engineering continues to grow steadily and is now moving into premises on Marienplatz in the heart of the state capital. In 2012, Da Vinci Engineering already employs around 300 people from around 50 different countries. The diversity of cultures represented in our company gives us the opportunity every day to combine a wide range of skills and constantly learn new things. We are proud to have such a diverse and talented team working together on innovative solutions.
