Automotive Comfort Systems

for convertibles and commercial vehicles

The Business Division Automotive Comfort Systems specializes in the development and production of hydraulic systems for convertible tops. The portfolio also includes pneumatic gearshift support systems for commercial vehicles.

In 2008, the Business Division Automotive Comfort Systems was spun off the Strategic Business Unit Automation Technology as part of a strategic repositioning effort of the Business Unit. The Business Division has since been managed by the Executive Board.

In 2012, the Business Division Automotive Comfort Systems posted sales of EUR 80 million.

"Our strategy for the future relies on performance-defining components for hydraulic roof systems and trunk lids as well as on key technologies for increasing the shift comfort of commercial vehicles."
