Part of a modern and global family business
As part of WITTE Automotive, WITOL’s headquarters are located in Velbert. From there, our specialists passionately plan and develop tolerance compensation systems for a wide range of automotive applications. In addition, the Technical Competence Center and the Testing Center are also located at the headquarters of WITTE Automotive.
WITOLs are manufactured in our state-of-the-art production facilities in Bulgaria, the Czech Republic and China.
High customer satisfaction through careful quality management
The demands on manufacturing in the automotive industry are constantly growing. Through our quality management, we can guarantee our customers an always reliable fastening solution due to detailed testing processes.
Versatile tests ensure the optimum product quality of the fastening solutions. In our test laboratories, the load capacity of WITOL tolerance compensation systems is analyzed and tested in detail. Salt spray tests determine the corrosion resistance of individual materials or their anti-corrosion coating. Continuous function tests measure our products and materials to detect even minimal changes in the micro range. In addition, tests for mechanical stress under climatic conditions are carried out in the climate chambers of our measurement laboratories.
Traditionally regional and sustainable
Environmentally conscious action is an integral part of our regionally oriented corporate policy. We take responsibility in dealing with our most important resources. This naturally includes the intensive integration of renewable energies, the limitation of emissions and increased investment in environmentally friendly technologies. The realization of our objectives is successfully implemented at our company through a committed, effective and efficient environmental management system.
To this end, we have introduced an environmental management system whose function is certified annually by independent auditors. You can read about our sustainability goals and measures in the WITTE Automotive sustainability report.
