“BMW and SGL, Ford and DowAksa, Hyundai and Hyosung, Mitsubishi and Wethje and Volvo with Benteler-SGL and Henkel are just a few examples of close partnerships between major automotive brands and composites manufacturers putting  new applications into practice,” says Dr Elmar Witten, general manager of Composites Germany. “The automotive industry, including commercial vehicles, continues to be one of the major growth drivers for fibre composite solutions and lightweight construction plays an especially important role within the context of e-mobility in the automotive sector.

“Lightweight construction is of particular significance for Germany’s industry to compete on a global scale and, hence, for Made in Germany.”
