Within the Original Equipment segment, ElringKlinger develops, manufactures, and sells products and assemblies destined for the automotive industry. They include lightweight components, thermal and acoustic shielding systems, cylinder-head and specialty gaskets, battery and fuel cell systems, and complete electric drive units.

In the Aftermarket segment, ElringKlinger offers an extensive range of high-quality gaskets, gasket sets, and service parts for the professional repair of engines, transmissions, exhaust systems, and auxiliary units in cars and commercial vehicles. They are marketed under the “Elring – Das Original” brand. Business within the Aftermarket segment is transacted through a global network of wholesalers and major group purchasing organizations. Alongside Western and Eastern Europe, the key markets for this area of business in terms of revenue include the Middle East and North Africa.

Within the Engineered Plastics segment, ElringKlinger develops, manufactures, and markets a wide range of customized products made from various high-performance plastics.
