Mechadyne’s company history

Mechadyne was established in 1984 as an independent automotive technology development centre. Since 1990 it has concentrated on engine technology for reducing emissions and improving fuel economy.
Mechadyne’s work focuses on Variable Valve Actuation or VVA, as the most immediate and cost effective method of improving engine out emissions and improving fuel economy.
Over the years, Mechadyne has developed and acquired an impressive portfolio of patented VVA technologies that have been proven to improve exhaust emissions, fuel economy and performance.
Our business is driven by emissions legislation for both the automotive and non-automotive gasoline and diesel engine markets.

In the summer of 2012 Mechadyne was acquired by KSPG AG.  Mechadyne has been integrated into the Valvetrain Systems unit of KSPGs subsidiary Pierburg GmbH, while maintaining Mechadyne’s established brand name.
