“For several years we have been designing and manufacturing special products mainly for land vehicles. In this specific case, we developed our own production line of plugs, sockets and the associated harnesses. The reason lies in the difficult procurement situation in which we have found ourselves since the last years. To counteract the risk of a supply bottleneck, we have built our own factory. A prerequisite for sales are special certifications from experts in the armaments sector and the relevant industry defense equipment standards, or VG for short. It was an extremely exciting and time-consuming process, but it has now paid off: The company PIK-AS Austria is an official supplier of “made in Austria” power connectors for land vehicles in the military sector with the following three certifications: VG 96923, VG 96917 and VG 96927″. explains Polster.
