Hyundai Motor Europe Technical Center GmbH (HMETC) in Rüsselsheim was opened in 2003. Its purpose is to make sure that every Hyundai and Kia which comes to Europe meets the demanding standards of the European customer and to adapt the cars to the needs of the specific markets. With passion and inventive talent we are not afraid of taking rougher paths as well in order to become a lifetime partner in automobiles and beyond. Many innovations have already been initiated at our European Research and Development Center, which made it possible for Hyundai to stand at the very forefront of the automobile manufactures. Our success confirms to us that we are heading in the right direction. We still continue to grow rapidly by focusing on our main success factor: the commitment and performance of our employees. Therefore, it is important to us to create a pleasant working environment for them. This not only includes attractive working conditions but also the personal and professional development of our employees. The working atmosphere is strongly shaped by the different cultures at HMETC. Employees of over 20 different nationalities are employed at our R&D Center giving the company a unique spirit.
