Frauenthal Automotive: premium quality for demanding customers

Frauenthal Automotive is a market leader in each of its product segments and supplies the majority of Europe’s commercial vehicle manufacturers as well as selected passenger vehicle producers. The company is also active in the non-automotive sector - a segment with great potential. Thereby, industrial clients in different areas are supplied with high-quality - predominantly steel components. 

Division has four product groups:

  • The segment Powertrain produces forged engine parts for high load-bearing applications such as connecting rods, camshafts and distributor boards at its two German factories.
  • The Gnotec Group operates two sites in Sweden and one each in Slovakia and China. It uses stateof-the-art equipment for sheet metal punching, pressing, cutting and welding.
  • The airtanks business has one plant each in Germany and the Czech Republic, and is the European leader in the market for steel airtanks used in braking systems for heavy trucks.
  • The Polish facility operated by the U-Bolts business is the leading European manufacturer of this specialist product. As safety components, these are required to meet strict technical standards.  New components such as wheel studs offer potential for growth.
