Future of the automotive industry

Guaranteeing efficiency, quality and safety in vehicles worldwide is the modern challenge for the international automotive industry. In close cooperation with our customers, we successfully implement new ideas and solutions, thus shaping the future development of the automotive industry.

Focus on lightweight solutions 

In the coming years our customers in the automotive sector will have to implement significant reductions in CO2 emissions. We are supporting them in this effort with the full extent of our vehicle and material competence. This concentration of expertise enables us to keep developing new, customer-specific and material independent solutions in the area of lightweight components and electromobility and thereby help reduce CO2 emissions.

Our most recent developments are weight-reduced axle components made of fiberglass-reinforced plastic, which the leading manufacturers are installing in their new luxury-class SUV. In terms of weight or emission reduction, we have also developed lightweight battery trays for electric vehicles as well as for hybrids, which are now in series production.
