History & Development

AUTEC GmbH & Co. KG was founded in 1988 as a subcompany of the Südrad Autoräder GmbH based in Eberbach/Fils. Object of this enterprise was and is the development and distribution of light alloy wheels for automobiles.

In 1997 the company became the property of BCW Kraftfahrzeugtechnik GmbH. In the same year AUTEC´s headquarters relocated to Mutterstadt where an administrative building as well as a storage building for 40.000 wheels was situated.

Due to an extending demand and a consistent increase of the product range AUTEC moved to Schifferstadt in 2003 and enhanced its storage capacity up to 100.000 wheels, one year later up to 140.000 wheels on a storage area of 4.080 sqm.

In 2010 an extension of the existing warehouse with a floor area of 4.400 sqm was built. It doubled the storage capacity up to 8.500 sqm with space for 300.000 wheels. Furthermore new office and social rooms were established.

Due to the additional sales of complete wheels, the storage capacity was increased to 360.000 wheels and complete wheels to a storage area of 13.000 sqm in 2013 with the construction of a further logistics hall.

In order to further expand the important business branch, AUTEC initially invested in another hall in 2017 and thus created a storage capacity of 500.000 wheels and complete wheels on an area of 18.000 sqm.

AUTEC is more than 25 years on the market now and is characterized by modern production processes, a diversified product range, a fully developed quality control system and an immediate availability. The company is a dependable, steady and solid partner for every distributor in the aftermarket for light alloy wheels.

The company´s vision "If you don´t go forwards, you fall behind" obligates AUTEC to meet the markets changing demands in an optimum way.
