The focus at the site

In Bad Rodach, the focus lies on production and development. Air conditioning and engine cooling systems for national and international automobile manufacturers are designed at the development center. The heart of our production is the fully automatic assembly of climate systems and the required components. The in-house center of expertise for injection molding is also noteworthy.

Furthermore, around 100 employees of the Interior Controls product group work in Bad Rodach. The automotive industry is currently experiencing a wave of revolutions that has also taken hold of vehicle interiors – from touch control, haptic feedback and input functions in decorative surfaces to gesture and face recognition using cameras. Thanks to new technologies and materials, modern vehicle interior designs are moving away from classic operating elements and toward cohesive interfaces. This is the field our Interior Controls specialists are working in.
