Market leader

Developing and producing a front-end module is a highly complex process. A huge variety of technical components must be combined into one unit, everything must fit exactly, the quality must be of the highest standard, the supply chain must be optimally coordinated – these are some of the requirements and tasks that need to be finely tuned with each other to get the perfect result. All of which demands the know-how of experts and this is where HBPO comes into its own. We’ve established our position as a market leader in producing comprehensive solutions for the front-end – from the design and development phase right through to assembly and logistics. In fact, our customers benefit from the synergy released when HBPO evolved as a joint venture out of three long-standing automotive-suppliers: Hella, Mahle (formerly Behr) and Plastic Omnium. These three merged in 2004 to carry on the tradition of Hella-Behr Fahrzeugsysteme GmbH, which was founded in 1999. With all these years of experience behind us, we provide solutions that combine the very best in technology, cosmetics and cost-effectiveness.
Lippstadt is the hub for all our research and development, as well as the centralised project management department – but throughout the world we have a network of assembly plants that are located close to our customers. This means that we can guarantee tailored logistic solutions such as just-in-sequence deliveries, which makes life so much easier for the car manufacturer.
As a market leader we will continue to set new benchmarks in the front-end market – perhaps together with you as a prospective client?
