Development and design in Mohelnice
Development in Mohelnice has been operating since 1994 and includes system groups for headlight and projection module development, optics development, design, simulation and project management. Our project teams sit together to share ideas and information. Testing labs are an integral part of the development process and take up 4 whole floors!
We also have two specific departments for the HELLA world - electronics development - embedded hardware and software (where we have global responsibility for the development of the tail lamp electronics, among other things, since 2018) and the VMK department, which deals with the design, production and subsequent recovery of assembly lines and single-purpose machines for the entire HELLA world.

The great advantage is that all these interrelated departments are in one location and under one roof.
Mohelnice is quite a small town, but it is close to everywhere (whether to work or with children for school or kindergarten). If you are tempted by a bigger city, it is about 20 minutes from Olomouc on the motorway. Mohelnice is also very accessible by train and bus and many of our colleagues use a carpool. You can even cycle to work through the beautiful Litovelské Pomoraví region.
The production plant in Mohelnice was established in 1994 and has grown from a single production hall to a giant complex of several separate production units (Internal Factories), which are divided according to technology and customers (pre-assembly, assembly of modules and headlights in series production). Our highly automated production is filled with robots and the latest technologies. Furthermore, our production is also specific in terms of the cleanliness required (after all, we produce decorative parts). See more

Poruba Development Center
Since 2011, the Ostrava Development Center has been located in the Moravian-Silesian Innovation Center building not far from the Technical University of Ostrava, with which we closely cooperate.
At present, the branch has about 100 development workers who are involved in the development of headlights and rear group lamps in the field of mechanical, optical and electronic design, thus creating a unique design element of the car. Since its inception, the development center has continued to grow, providing an opportunity not only for experienced professionals, but also for graduates and students interested in the latest trends in applied electronics, optical systems development, advanced plastic parts design and other technical fields. Within each project, the development team sits together in an open-space office. See more
The development center is located in a quiet part of Ostrava - Poruba near the forest, where you can also find a workout area and seating for relaxation. There is a regular bus service to the MSIC campus (stop Studentské koleje), and as the development center is only a few kilometers from the motorway, it takes us about an hour and a quarter to get to the development center or production in Mohelnice by company car.
Testing laboratory in Hrabová
An integral part of the entire development process is also the testing phase, which is why the new laboratory in Ostrava-Hrabová was opened in 2020 and serves as the central testing facility in Europe. We can find here mainly climatic chambers, vibration equipment or a goniometer for measuring light values. The test laboratory mainly performs so-called Product Validation, i.e. testing of products assembled on the serial line and retraining tests. The laboratory continues to grow, both with the addition of testing equipment and staff. Primarily European HELLA locations will be customers of the Ostrava test facility.
The testing laboratory is located at the end of the industrial zone, which can be reached by bus (Hrabová PZ South stop) or by car at the exit from Místecká street to Šenov.
Horka nad Moravou
Spare parts production plant
In 2020, we took over one of our suppliers in Horka nad Moravou, creating our new branch that focuses on the production of spare parts.
Here we produce headlights for spare parts for dozens of different types of cars. In addition to the production halls, the Horka nad Moravou factory also has six adjacent warehouses.
HAN3 currently employs around 200 people, most of whom are part of the HELLA family. See more
Horka nad Moravou is located close to the Litovelsko Pomoraví region. There is great public transport from Olomouc to Horka nad Moravou, the journey takes 10 minutes and you can also get there by bike on the cycle path.
