AUTEX Autoteile Export GmbH, as we know it today, was born out of the merger of Klotz Industrie & Autoteile GmbH and AUTEX Autoteile Export GmbH in 2006.
Klotz, founded in 1954, developed over the years into a flourishing key distributor for FAG bearings in Rhineland. Their success in international export business was due to their being pioneers in the field introducing the wheel bearing kits.
In 1978 AUTEX Autoteile Export GmbH was founded as a subsidiary of the Lemförder Metallwaren AG and belonged to the ZF Trading Gruppe until October 2005. The thriving sales and distribution of the range of OEM specification GK water pumps soon developed into a prosperous mainstay of the business in itself.
The merger of both companies served as the basis for today’s commercial trade program. Belt drive components, wheel bearing kits and GK water pumps have contributed to AUTEX’s worldwide reputation. Since 2006, AUTEX has been fulfilling the highest quality demands of TecDoc and belongs to the association of Certified Data Suppliers. All-round quality – that’s what AUTEX stands for.
OTTO stocks a massive range of Autex wheel bearings, hubs and hub assemblies, timing belt kits and components and water pumps that meet and exceed OEM specifications. Visit ottocarparts.com to search for your car parts using your car registration.
