VDO – A Strong Brand of the Continental Corporation

German engineering skills that stand the test of time


The company was formed in 1929 with the merger of Vereinigte DEUTA (Deutsche Tachometer-Werke GmbH) and OTA Apparate GmbH (Offenbacher Tachometer-Werke). Despite the company’s dynamic history, the VDO brand has not lost any of its charm – and for good reason. After all, it is difficult to find another brand to match VDO in standing for innovation and quality based on German engineering skills.

Legally compliant recording


From June 15, 2019, newly registered or newly equipped vehicles over 3.5 metric tons that are used for commercial purposes must be fitted with a new-generation digital tachograph. The purpose of the new EU regulation 165/2014 is to further improve road safety, guarantee competition on the European domestic market and prevent the manipulation of digital tachographs.

The new Digital Tachograph legislation on June 15th, 2019 will bring great changes to the Transport Industry.

Save The Date for the biggest change in tachograph since 2006.
