AG employs over 4,000 specialised staff members.

In the not-too-distant future, mobility is going to be fundamentally different from what it is today. At AG, we’re thinking open-mindedly and creatively about how we can contribute to more efficient, greener mobility, for our customers and for society as a whole. The challenges are so great that it doesn’t make sense for players to seek solutions by themselves. The more we think holistically with partners across all relevant fields, the more effective and broadly supported the solutions will be. This is the great strength of co.mobility, an ecosystem bringing together the main players in this field to develop a mobility solution integrated into a global platform.” said Hans De Cuyper, CEO of AG
