PIK-AS AUSTRIA: A Rock in the Surf

When it comes to military vehicle construction or special mechanic engineering, special purpose applications are in high demand. In the heart of Europe, Austria, you can find an expert for creative development and supply of special electromechanical components.
“The name of our company, PIK-AS means Ace of Spades in German. We are looking back to four decades of cooperation with well-known vehicle manufacturers in commercial and military vehicle construction worldwide,” says Christina Polster. She took over the firm from her father in 2015.
It is said that what young people learn is engraved in stone – so from that perspective the graduate engineer grew up within an independent family business with very high claims to relationship-oriented projects and high product quality as a basic condition. “We live internationality and work within multicultural societies. The company is based in Austria, but our sales staff and branches offer native-speaking customer support in the main sales markets.”
LED Interior Lights Passing Blast Tests
PIK-AS group focuses on the development of certified products meeting several military standards. “The current shootings stars are LED interior lights: They are especially designed to meet EMC, temperature, shock and vibration needs. We even had the chance to have them successfully participat in a blast test together with an original equipment manufacturer,” explains Polster: “Our LED’s might appear as only one component among many, but they are a true rock in the surf!”
Must-haves for Military Success
Besides lights, special switches and power relays and connectors are part of the company’s core range. She says: “The slave jump start Stanag 4047 as well as the 2-pin Connectors are the hidden champions within electromechanical supplies. Sustainable quality equals power – it is important that you can rely on the functionality of our products.”
Communication Matters
Polster, head of PIK-AS group, lives on one strong philosophy: “In the sincere course of our close and respectful relationships, our customers become our friends. Our team is always keen to check the feasibility of innovations and tailor-made ways of implementation.”
