A strong partner to the international automotive industry

Brose develops and produces electric motors and mechatronic systems for vehicle doors, liftgates and seat structures. Its customers include around 80 car brands and over 40 suppliers. Every second new vehicle worldwide is equipped with at least one Brose product. Advances in drive train electrification create further growth opportunities for the mechatronics specialist. The company uses its expertise in the integration of mechanical, electric, electronic and sensor systems to offer customers tailor-made solutions. Although usually not visible to the driver, they enhance safety, comfort and efficiency.

The company has been growing dynamically ever since it was founded over 100 years ago, and its growth has been largely self-financed. The family-owned company will invest around one billion euros from 2017 to 2019 in technical equipment and systems as well as the expansion of its worldwide locations. Around eight percent of turnover is invested annually in research and development. The company has about more than 3,000 engineers and technicians at 19 locations in ten countries, which means over ten percent of all employees work in this field.

For decades, Brose has been a leader in the international automotive industry – a reliable par tner and innovative pioneer. Maintaining this position involves a central challenge: achieving consistent, excellent quality standards worldwide while increasing the rate of innovation. To achieve this, Brose relies on the highest possible levels of global cooperation – and a shared understanding that transforms its almost 25,000 employees at 60 locations in 23 countries into a strong group.
