Why is friendly “Justin” on the amotIQ logo?
The agile roadrunner “Justin” in the amotIQ logo stands for the company´s speed and roadholding. The reason is that amotIQ always reacts flexible, straightforward and promptly towards its customers. Due to its speed and its cooperative attitude the fast-paced company has few natural enemies. At amotIQ there is no “you and us”, just “us together” as a team!
Based on this, amotIQ´s success can be traced back to two factors: its qualified, motivated and process-experienced employees and the industry-oriented, competent, SME-oriented approach in projects. This fact is also confirmed by satisfied amotIQ customers, who repeatedly attest closeness, collegiality and humanity to amotIQ. When will you try to find out if amotIQ suits you?
Why is friendly „Justin“ on our logo?
- The likeable roadrunner is an extremely good runner. He is the world´s fastest bird with the ability to fly and is able to reach a maximum speed of up to 42 km / h. Sometimes amotIQ is even faster than “Justin”.
- Justin stands for Just in Time. Just like “Justin” amotIQ is always at the right place, at the right time
- Like the experts at amotIQ automotive, the roadrunner always stays on the ground (despite having the ability to fly at high altitude). Rarely, and only if necessary, does the roadrunner take off or glide to his next destination.
- Roadrunners like to run on plantless ground such as dry riverbeds or roads. The smart bird uses his tail like a rudder to change direction. This shows that the roadrunner has automotive talents and is flexible just like the experts at amotIQ automotive.
- The smart bird has developed an energy-efficient method to adapt to the different daytime and nighttime temperatures in the desert. amotIQ is also the flexible specialist for changing processes.
- The roadrunner´s hunting success can be explained with their cooperative attitude. Even the greatest challenges are overcome together with their partners. amotIQ is the same
- In the culture of indigenous peoples, such as the Hopi, the roadrunner stands for strength, perseverance and courage. Since he hardly ever takes off, the trail of his characteristic footprints never seems to end in the desert sand.
- The most famous Road Runner is the character of Chuck Jones, who appears in cartoons by Warner Bros. productions Looney Tunes and is always unsuccessfully chased by Wile E. Coyote. It’s not the size that counts. It is experience and skill that does!
