Future needs origin.


What began in the fifties as a traditional trading house developed in less than twenty years into an international automotive supplier in the premium segment. Our globalisation in the eighties was a logical consequence of a constantly growing, highly varied demand and cleared the way to new markets, new

industries and new customers. Today we are among the world’s leading technology experts for complex plastic and metal parts in the automotive, industrial and appliance sectors.
