Motor sports are our passion – the drive to be constantly at the top is what our company is renowned for. 100% passion, adrenalin and enthusiasm for what we do is important to everyone in our motor sports team.
Over 600 highly specialized mechanics in the two-wheeler segment? State-of-the-art prototyping technologies and manufacturing equipment? Over 20,000m² of space for the latest testing and measuring equipment? Welcome to the KTM development center! In the initial birthplace of every motorcycle, our international team of mechanics give their best every day to develop today’s concepts into tomorrow’s championship-winning machines.
Besides the development of new vehicle and drive concepts, we place a high value on testing the details of individual parts and assemblies. Our industrial park includes a wide array of test benches and measuring equipment that allow us to implement new developments swiftly. The construction, testing and series production of new concepts calls for a steadily growing, interdisciplinary team of specialists.
We control 80% of our worldwide sales through our network of sales subsidiaries. Through our subsidiaries we are directly connected to our dealers and can therefore respond quickly to cater for market developments and customer expectations. In the rest of the markets, we are either represented in the form of joint ventures or we work together with independent importers.
In addition to the expansion and to further developing the quality of the sales structures in the traditional KTM markets, we are also driving forward expansion in the emerging markets such as South America, the Middle East, and Asia. In the flagship stores, the aim is for customers to immerse themselves in our world and experience first hand the fascination surrounding the brand.
Successes and the fascination of motor racing provide the best advertisement. Globally and in all disciplines, KTM motorcycles are constantly winning, from regional championships to world championship titles. Our international marketing team presents these successes in the perfect light with great dedication and innovative ideas, and ensures that the KTM brands not only conquer the race tracks, but also win over the hearts of the fans. Marketing is staffed by highly trained professionals who are united by their passion for motorcycles and for the KTM brands, and who work toward achieving a common goal with a great deal of commitment and a hands-on mentality.BACK
The purchasing department is responsible for the entire procurement process for our purchasing portfolio. The aim and responsibility of the unit is to request and negotiate all prototypes, series tools and series parts that are required for series production from reliable suppliers. The KTM standard contracts are individually adapted by the purchaser and concluded in accordance with the specifications of the purchasing management team. Furthermore, the quality assurance agreements, scrap agreements and the request for technical specifications also form part of the area of responsibility of the purchasing department.
Anyone who has ever chased an Enduro or a crosser through difficult terrain knows the stresses and strains that such a motorcycle has to endure. For this reason alone, our quality management guarantees maximum precision throughout the product creation process. This means that KTM riders can rely on their motorcycle in any situation, no matter how extreme.
When the motorcycles leave the factory, this does not mean that our work is done. Providing professional support to our customers is important to maintain and further expand the premium standards we set for our motorcycles. The philosophy of customer service: “Keep the customer riding”.BACK
The finance department takes care of all financial matters: It is responsible for external reporting, maintains relationships with investors and also ensures that all accounting guidelines are adhered to.
In a dynamic and future-oriented company such as KTM AG, the challenge is to pay attention to details. Controlling is responsible for the planning, management and control of commercial processes. As a provider of economic advice to the company’s executives and middle management, Controlling also supports the implementation and achievement of corporate goals.
In the legal department, meticulous attention is paid to ensuring that all applicable laws are observed. This is where the experts on all legal matters reside, and they also take care of protecting our brand and products.
One of our most important success factors are our employees – the focus of the HR department. Recruitment strengthens the positioning of our employer brand and finds the best candidates through targeted personnel selection. Through our KTM_academy we invest heavily in the further development of our employees and offer interesting further education and training measures to equip our team to meet new challenges.BACK
Designers and engineers plan and develop the motorcycles, but it is only during production that all pre-assembled components of our motorcycles come together thanks to perfect logistics. 90 different engines and 150 different motorcycles are assembled from more than 10,000 different parts.
The engine housings and cylinder heads of our high-performance engines are machined on 19 CNC machining centers and then assembled to create unique engines. Our motorcycles leave the assembly lines every four minutes. After assembly, every new motorcycle must undergo a test bench test for a complete functional check. This guarantees perfect performance even under the most difficult conditions. Only then can the global shipping of the motorcycles take place.
The logistics department’s seamless supply chain keeps the engine of production running. Only with smooth logistics can motorcycles and spare parts be delivered on time worldwide. The organization of customs clearance is also one of the core competencies.
The logistics department is also a core element in achieving the corporate goals. Thanks to this department, work processes are optimized, costs are cut and production times are reduced – which is also reflected in the times on the race track!BACK
The efforts of a strong team are needed before the rider can start their motorcycle, and the adventure begins. As a central service provider for the entire Group, the IT department plays a key role in all IT, project and process management issues.
IT is involved in almost every work step, process and therefore also in the motorcycle. Standard software is adapted to the needs of the departments, individual software is developed and cloud solutions are integrated into processes. Workstations, networks and systems are operated and supported around the globe. With state-of-the-art solutions, IT supports the processes of internal departments as well as cooperation with dealers and importers around the world. New technologies are evaluated and supported by professional project management. From design, via control in production, through to delivery to our dealers – our IT contributes to every motorcycle. A focus on teamwork and service is a top priority.BACK
Working from different locations, becoming more mobile and sharing ideas with other teams are becoming important. At the Anif site, our employees have access to furnished Co-Working-Desks where cross-departmental teams can work together.
Additional workspaces will be created in Linz and Wels.BACK
