Product designer Andreas Grieger develops one of the first seat belt-integrated motorhome seats.
The company becomes the "Aguti Produktentwicklung & Design GmbH" and moves from Mindelheim to Kressbronn. There, a greenhouse is converted into a production hall, where the first seats for "Knaus" are developed and produced with a handful of laborers.
Other motorhome manufacturers quickly catch on to the young company and the small, regional family business quickly develops into an internationally-operating business.
Series production is steadily increasing and subject to continuous expansion.
To ensure the quality of our products, the quality management system according to DIN EN ISO 9001 is introduced in 1997.
The products are now homologated according to ECE/EC guidelines.
Relocation to Langenargen on Lake Constance into the company's own premises and enlarged vehicle fleet.
The Technology & Construction Department is expanded and staffed with four new positions.
Everything from a single source - from the idea through construction, design and production to sales and distribution.
Aguti is complete supplier for all types of seating systems to the automotive industry.
By tripling the number of employees and quadrupling the sales in the last five years, the company has undergone an exemplary development. The completion of extension buildings brought along new jobs as well as apprenticeship and internship positions.
The new tensile-testing system is installed at our facility and put into operation.
Material testing and TÜV-certification of the seats now take place directly at our headquarters.
A modern logistics center, further offices and the new design department are housed in the new building addition.
On October 1, 2019, an agreement will be reached for the takeover of AGUTI Produktentwicklung & Design GmbH by ALOIS KOBER GMBH.
