About us

BENTELER is a leading global partner for the automotive industry. We offer first-class engineering and metal-processing competence combined with production excellence. Our customers benefit from our comprehensive vehicle know-how along the entire value chain: from development and production through to assembly. From components and modules for chassis, body-in-white and engine and exhaust applications to modular future technologies such as e-mobility system solutions. In collaboration with a broad network of strategic partners we provide our customers with the expertise they need to deliver their projects in time, in quality and in cost.

We are a metal process specialist

BENTELER has been working with metal since its foundation in 1876. Our customers can therefore benefit from our unmatched material expertise: we know how to form and to join metal like nobody else. Based on cost-efficient and best-in-class manufacturing processes we provide them with premium quality production excellence in technologies such as extrusion, forming, joining and assembly for materials such as steel and aluminum. Have a look at the video below, showing our competence in producing high-quality bumpers with crashbox-functionality in Raufoss.

Our customers can trust in our support anywhere in the world: we are at their side, geographically as well as strategically. We strengthen our regional growth markets in order to support our customers as international partners from product ideas all the way to series production, right where they need us. This is our local-for-local approach.
