Dekra wants to set up business in Luxembourg in 2017

German company Dekra, active in vehicle inspection, wants to set up business in Luxembourg in 2017. RTL reported this on Wednesday, no official date is however known so far.

“Luxemburger Wort” also reported back in September that Dekra wants to offer its services in the Grand Duchy starting from 2017. At the time, a Dekra-spokesman told Wort: “We want to contribute to the high technical standards of vehicles in Luxembourg and offer an alternative to the country’s car owners through our vast and international experience and efficiency.

This would mean direct competition for Luxembourg’s national vehicle inspection SNCT (Société Nationale de Contrôle Technique). Since February 1, 2016, other companies can offer the same services in the Grand Duchy, after a law voted in December 2015 came into force.

Dekra was founded in Germany in 1925 as “Deutscher-Kraftfahrzeug-Überwachungs-Verein” and has since developed into one of the biggest players on this market, nationally and globally.
