KST was founded in 1967. Their first activities revolved around fuel testing. In the 1980s, this was expanded to include engine durability testing and testing of motor assemblies and components.
In the years that followed, further test benches were installed to test and develop: heavy duty engines, turbochargers and powertrains, systems for the after-treatment of exhaust, and electric and hybrid powertrains.
Almost five decades after its founding, KST now provides a broad scope of services, performed by 170 employees working on a 3-shift system.
