Few modern automotive suppliers can boast a history dating back to 1844 but this is the DNA that Febi Bilstein boasts. From it’s humble beginnings as a specialist producer of engineering tools in Ennepetal, Germany to it’s current massive presence as an aftermarket parts producer this DNA persists. Even the name is a reminder of Febi’s founder “Ferdinand Bilstein”, nothing else has been abbreviated since.
The early 20th century saw Febi establish a technical excellence in production of bolts and turned threaded parts which poised them ideally for the burgeoning auto industry in Germany. Their 1921 patented leaf spring anchor bolt was immediately adopted by the industry, the tradition of innovation remaining strong in the company to this day. Febi’s commitment to quality saw their original 1937 king-pin service kits sweep the market from their introduction and there has been no looking back since. Thorough attention to quality saw stable growth and expansion through to the 1970’s when the range started to expand to what we know today.
As a major manufacturer of auto parts Febi Bilstein forges ahead into the 21st century a truly multi national business. With major manufacturing and distribution in Europe, UK, USA, Asia Pacific, China and soon South America and continued growth of the Bilstein group of brands there can be no doubt about the future of Febi Bilstein.
