All our parts for steering and powertrain systems are made from light aluminium alloys. This reduces the weight of vehicles, which then consume less fuel and create less pollution.

With our own development, construction and tool manufacturing and the combination of various technologies and processes to produce high-quality innovative solutions, we increase the added value of final products.

We co-develop high-quality aluminium parts for which we design and produce our own tools.
