VDO – A Strong Brand of the Continental Corporation German engineering skills that stand the test of time

The company was formed in 1929 with the merger of Vereinigte DEUTA (Deutsche Tachometer-Werke GmbH) and OTA Apparate GmbH (Offenbacher Tachometer-Werke). Despite the company’s dynamic history, the VDO brand has not lost any of its charm – and for good reason. After all, it is difficult to find another brand to match VDO in standing for innovation and quality based on German engineering skills.
