HBPO - Always in front

HBPO is the global market leader for highly integrated front-end modules (FEM). As an automotive supplier we have a competitive advantage based on our know-how and our experience in the fields of development, design, assembly and logistics of module solutions. These include cockpit modules, centre consoles and individual aerodynamic solutions such as Active Grille Shutter and the Rollo.


Modules are our speciality! We offer individual module solutions for cockpit and front-end modules (FEM), air control systems (such as Active Grille Shutter, Rollo and other individual aerodynamic solutions) and centre consoles. The advantages are obvious: they help them keep manufacturing processes and costs lean. We supply numerous well-known car manufacturers!
