How can we help billions move safely?

Join us at K 2019 as we work with the automotive industry to move the world more safely, sustainably and efficiently. Let’s find solutions that bring people, goods and ideas closer together.

Evolving automotive design

Together, we can find solutions in every area of automotive design, from bumpers, seating, headlamps and dashboard componentry to seals, weather strips, under-the-hood applications as well as the protection of wires and cables. We’re also exploring enhanced acoustics and enabling more design freedom through thinner, lighter and more flexible materials. What requirements are you aiming to meet?

Adapting to global trends

Lightweighting is part of a greater trend to find manufacturing solutions that will reduce CO2 emissions and help mitigate climate change. Other trends include the rise of autonomous vehicles, a demand for more connected and electrified technology, and a growing market in car sharing and mobility platforms.

Moving forward

What’s certain, the way we move tomorrow will be determined by the questions we ask and the partnerships we forge today.
