Our Core Business
Webasto has been supplying the automotive industry for over 75 years. As an international market leader for roof and temperature management systems, our development, production and sales capacities are oriented to our customers around the world.
Roof systems – from sliding roofs to convertibles
Our product portfolio for roof systems ranges from classical pop-up roofs, large-scale panorama roofs and solar roofs right through to polycarbonate roof modules. Beyond our long-standing tradition on the passenger car market, we can now offer movable roof systems for special vehicles and yachts too, drawing on our know-how from the automotive industry in these specific markets. What's more, Webasto has been producing convertible roof systems since the year 2000. Amongst the innovations that have been developed by Webasto, you will find the development of a 5-part retractable hardtop (steel convertible roof). Having taken over the soft-top business from Edscha at the end of 2009, we can now offer our customers the widest range of products in the industry for convertible roof systems thanks to our combined, highly specialized development and production expertise.
Thermal systems – We can provide heating, ventilation and air conditioning.
Irrespective of whether these are passenger cars, trucks or transporters, buses, rail, or special vehicles, these different means of transport are often mobile workplaces and therefore have to offer suitable comfort for their users. Pleasant temperatures prevail in the passenger compartment and cargo bay thanks to Webasto solutions such as parking heaters, auxiliary heaters, or parking and rooftop air conditioning systems. What's more, we are also ensuring an optimum room climate in an increasing number of motor homes and yachts with heating and air conditioning solutions.
For final customers
We also offer our parking heaters and sliding roofs to final customers as retrofit options and can depend on a global network of installation partners to reliably fit our products into your vehicle.
Always close to the customer
As an international automotive supplier for roof, soft-top, heating and cooling systems, we supply almost all vehicle manufacturers around the world. One of our strengths is the close cooperation with our customers in every phase of a project – from the prototype stage, serial launch right down to the discontinuation of the relevant model. We think in networks with the necessary eye for detail and for the overall vehicle, allowing us to react promptly to changes in the vehicle concept and adjust our serial solutions to the new requirements. This is particularly true of our competence in electronics.
