MENDEL integrates the specific competences of 6 consortium partners in total.


The company has its roots in the companies AVT Verkehrstechnik GmbH and STOYE GmbH. Both companies had already been operating successfully in the field of signal control and traffic technology for many years. In spring 2011 both companies merged and were named AVT STOYE GmbH.
Today AVT STOYE belongs to the largest service providers in its sector: it has more than 80 employees and carries out service maintenance for more than 2,800 traffic controllers in Germany.
Due to the merger, the new company is able to use valuable synergy effects, so that the already tried and tested products can be combined with each other and continuously improved. As a consequence, AVT STOYE is able to use state-of-the-art system components for traffic technology.
The core competences of AVT STOYE include among other things the manufacture, construction and maintenance of traffic light controllers as well as the development and construction of traffic control systems.
Because AVT STOYE has branches and service centers in North Rhine Westphalia, Hesse and Thuringia, it is always within proximity to its customers. The customers belong primarily to the public sector.
