ThyssenKrupp Automotive - a global player in the automotive supply industry
ThyssenKrupp Automotive sees itself as a technology leader capable of responding with great flexibility to changes on the world markets and proactively shaping the changing relationship between auto manufacturers and suppliers. We have the ability to identify new challenges in good time and develop attractive, innovative products in response. ThyssenKrupp Automotive has further strengthened its position as a worldwide partner to the auto industry, expanding its component and system business and at the same time extending its engineering know-how and range of services.
ThyssenKrupp Automotive is one of the leading global players when it comes to chassis, body and powertrain products. In all three areas we offer our customers tailored solutions: from design, engineering and factory planning, to individual components and modules, to complex systems. We handle tooling production, design and build manufacturing equipment at the production sites of our customers, and coordinate the logistics. And we do this at around 130 locations with over 43,000 employees in 17 countries around the world.
Asia and above all China is becoming increasingly important in the international auto business. ThyssenKrupp Automotive has responded to this trend and set up several new joint ventures in China. As a full-service supplier we follow our customers worldwide and offer our know-how on a local basis. This trend is set to continue, with further activities planned not only in Asia but in other regions of the world as well, such as Central and Eastern Europe.
ThyssenKrupp Automotive is a world market leader in body parts, engine components such as crankshafts and assembled camshafts, and in steering columns and steering systems. We head the field when it comes to innovative air spring and suspension systems, axles and complete chassis.
