AVL acquires shares in FIFTY2 Technology; enhanced fluid dynamics simulations



AVL List GmbH has acquired shares in FIFTY2 Technology GmbH, located in Freiburg, Germany. Originating from the University of Freiburg, the start-up FIFTY2 developed the innovative software tool PreonLab. PreonLab simulates free-surface flows in unprecedented resolutions with low preprocessing efforts and high postprocessing capabilities.

The two companies have been working together successfully for several years. AVL’s entry as a shareholder now reinforces this partnership.

With PreonLab, we are opening up completely new possibilities for our customers to simulate liquids in a significantly shorter time, with less effort and with impressive visualization capabilities.
—Roland Wanker, Vice President AVL Advanced Simulation Technologies

Thanks to AVL’s unique engineering know-how and strong sales organization—paired with our expertise in the field of particle-based liquid simulation —we were able to quickly attract worldwide attention with PreonLab and win many enthusiastic customers.
—Markus Ihmsen and Jens Cornelis, the two founders and managing directors of FIFTY2
