QRTECH started in 1997 and has its roots in safety-critical real-time systems at Chalmers University of Technology. Since the beginning, our focus has mainly been on electronics and software for customers in the industry sector. QRTECH’s collaboration with science and industry has been a cornerstone of our business over the years – a part of our DNA. This has enabled us to develop products at the forefront of technology.
The automotive industry appreciated the skill of QRTECH’s engineers, the reliability of our services, and the predictability of our project management. In the early 2000s, QRTECH grew rapidly. In 2004 and 2005, QRTECH was named a “”Gazelle Company”” by Dagens Industri.
In 2007, we initiated research in electronic and hybrid vehicles. At this point, QRTECH also became involved in the development of the “”Functional Safety”” standard ISO 26262.
The expansion continued, and in 2013 QRTECH moved to its current premises in Mölndal. In 2016, the laboratory operations expanded further with power electronics cells and an EMC chamber.
In 2017, the company was acquired and became part of the EMBRON Group.
In 2020, QRTECH invested in a new power electronics lab. The focus has been on developing and testing future electric motors in the transportation and automotive industries.
In 2021, QRTECH acquired Endian Technologies and continued its journey towards an even stronger position within industrial IoT, connectivity and open source.
