BILSTEIN 150 Jahre

150 Years BILSTEIN

Thank you for 150 years



 We are WAY AHEAD.
And ready as never before for the next 150 years.


We are pioneers in suspension development – and offer top performance far beyond shock absorber technologies. Our new claim WAY AHEAD with the newly developed brand values as well as our fresh corporate design are a direct expression of our forward-looking attitude. The relaunch conveys our claim to leadership, captures the core of our identity and supports our striving for development in partnership.



Our new logo also reflects our brand identity. It visualizes our values, represents our broad portfolio and can be used flexibly in media of all kinds. Modern, future-oriented, determined. Just typical BILSTEIN.

The BILSTEIN Spirit.

Ambition, drive, teamwork: writing history has never been enough for us. We’ve always wanted more! Together with our partners and customers, we want to shape the future of suspension technology. Innovative, ambitious, reliable, honest – and always focused on the perfect driving experience. This unique “BILSTEIN Spirit” is reflected in every second of the last 150 years.


BILSTEIN is in the lead: with groundbreaking innovations, premium quality, an unrivaled product range, and our expertise in series production. We aspire to constantly redefining driving safety, dynamics, and comfort. And as a specialist for vibration damping and suspensions, we are continuing to expand our leadership in all fields.



BILSTEINERS ambitiously seek for the better solution – relentlessly, full of curiosity and enthusiasm – even after our customers and competitors have decided things are fine as they are. We recognize perfection when we feel it on our test drives, we are not satisfied with anything less, and we are proud when our efforts spark joy in others or even win awards. This is what drives us.



BILSTEINERS create open and intimate partnerships built on trust. We owe our success as a pioneer and market leader to the people, their expertise, their team spirit, and the synergies that arise from goal-oriented teamwork on equal footing.
