The "innovation axis Stuttgart-Zurich" is one of the strongest economic areas in Europe with very good transport links and high recreational value. It is no coincidence that the region between Hochschwarzwald, Danube Valley and Lake Constance is one of the most popular locations in Germany. University cities such as Freiburg and Constance attract with a young and international flair, while the area around Villingen, Schwenningen and Donaueschingen scores with a lot of nature, sports and family offers.


Gainesville and Virginia Beach in the southeastern US owe their attractiveness not only to the nearby cities of Atlanta and Washington, but also to their proximity to fascinating landscapes such as the Blue Ridge Mountains and Chesapeake Bay. In the world's second-largest automotive market with dynamic development, the locations benefit from a very good airport connection and a state-of-the-art production environment.


Querétaro is two thousand meters above sea level. The dynamic business metropolis in the center of Mexico has a strong industry, but at the same time it has retained its historic flair. In a few hours drive you can reach the Pacific Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico. With many direct flights to the US and South America you are optimally connected.


The Asian automotive market has the strongest growth worldwide. The most recent location of the IMS Gear Group offers a modern production environment with the highest quality and production standards not far from the world metropolis Shanghai in Taicang. The vibrant city has already received numerous awards in national comparison, including as a green city and as a particularly attractive tourist center.

In addition, IMS Gear employees receive a fare and company grants for occupational retirement provision.


Here a local adaptation makes sense. Please send me your suggestions. It could also be completely different topics.

Further education

IMS Gear supports the individual strengths of the employees and accompanies their professional development with a variety of further education offers. Qualification planning is based on continuous dialogue between employees and supervisors as well as the annual appraisal interviews.

The training center is open to all employees - also in the context of further education.

Wellness program

Only with sufficient fitness can a common and successful future be formed.

Further benefits

The IMS Gear community culture is also reflected in a popular employee magazine and many joint events.
