WAY AHEAD

Aspiration. Drive. Teamwork.

Even then, we knew that tomorrow’s driving experience counts more than yesterday’s performance. And that the next innovation is always more important than the last. That’s why we know only one claim: We shape the present and future of chassis engineering. Today, with more than 4,000 employees at six locations worldwide, we produce around 13 million shock absorbers every year.

How it all began

When August Bilstein laid the foundations for the innovation incubator BILSTEIN in Altenvoerde in Germany’s Westphalia region in 1873, nobody had any idea of the crucial influence the company’s products would one day have on the driving comfort and safety of cars.
