As an independent and globally positioned supplier, the ElringKlinger Group is a powerful and reliable partner to the automotive industry. Be it car or commercial vehicle, be it electric motor, hybrid technology, or optimized combustion engine, we offer innovative solutions for all types of drive system in passenger cars and commercial vehicles. In doing so, we are making a committed contribution to sustainable mobility.
When it came to positioning ourselves as a specialist in the field of e-mobility, we were among the frontrunners – with cutting-edge battery and fuel cell technology, electric drive units as well as associated components and assemblies like plastic housings and stamped and formed metal components.
Customized lightweight concepts from ElringKlinger help to reduce the overall weight of vehicles. As a result, electric trucks and cars benefit from an extended range, while vehicles powered by diesel or gasoline engines consume less fuel and emit less CO2.
At the same time, we are committed to evolving our sealing technology for a wide range of applications. Our shielding systems are designed to ensure high-end temperature and acoustics management throughout the vehicle. Drive components developed by ElringKlinger can be used in all types of drive system.
Additionally, the Group's portfolio includes tooling technology and products made of high-performance plastics for the automotive industry and other sectors. With our components and systems we are also maintaining our forward momentum in the non-automotive lines of business.
These efforts are supported by a dedicated workforce of around 9,500 people at 45 ElringKlinger Group locations around the globe.
ElringKlinger can look back on more than 140 years of company history. Over time, a lot has happened: Our product portfolio expanded, new locations were established and other companies were taken over. Take a look at our history.
