RECARO has been setting new standards for over 110 years. The company’s roots go way back to the Stuttgarter Carosserie- u. Radfabrik founded in 1906 by master saddler Wilhelm Reutter. Even back then, the company developed and produced bodies for the most well-known manufacturers of the time, focusing primarily on interior fittings. So seat specialization was the next logical step. In 1963, REutter CAROsserie became seat specialist RECARO.
We’re all about making driving safer, more comfortable and more controlled. We’re equally obsessed with motorsport! Whatever record you broke yesterday, you aspire to beat it today. Our seats exude innovation, quality, safety, comfort and a genuine passion for cars, culminating in cutting-edge driving performance.
Our customers can access all services from a single source, from the initial concept right through to the start and supervision of series production. These services, among others, include fundamental research, the latest CAD workstations, excellent engineering services, our own prototype and testing department and an in-house crash simulation facility. Extensive technical calculations, FEM simulations, rapid prototyping and rapid tooling ensure swift, cost-effective processes every step of the way. RECARO Automotive’s efficient project management system guarantees that we deliver even the most ambitious project aims. We connect customers and suppliers at an early stage and ensure effective cost control, precise scheduling and tracking: strong foundations for successful project management. And we have all of the industry-standard certifications.
RECARO is one of the automotive world’s most famous brands, and the single most recognizable seat manufacturer in vehicle interiors. This is attributable in no small part to our unrivaled knowledge of our end customers’ needs, developed through our own aftermarket seat range. We receive direct feedback from customers, which we promptly incorporate into the development of new ideas, which in turn directly benefits our OE partners.
RECARO – the heart of driving.
By defining our quality and environmental policy, we have demonstrated our absolute dedication to maintaining and further improving our high standard of quality for our products and services in accordance with our zero-defect strategy. The Continuous Improvement Process is an integral part of the company culture in order to further optimise all processes and constantly reassess what has been achieved. A successful company is based on highly motivated and skilled employees, which is a key element of the strategic alignment of RECARO Automotive. We place particular importance on the economical use of resources and on environmental protection – why we use e.g. 100 % green electricity. For us, bringing economics and ecology into harmony is an ethical obligation. This led us to obtain ISO 14001 certification. We thereby face the constant requirement to meet the demands and expectations of our customers, the market and the environment while taking into account the efficiency of our company in cooperation with our employees. We commit ourselves to fulfilling the applicable environmental laws and regulations, and we endorse sustainability mobility.
Since 1906 we never stop searching for something new and are continually breaking new grounds. RECARO products are at the cutting-edge of technology.
We believe in the superior quality and masterly craftsmanship of our products and carefully select only the most precious and top-notch materials for our seats.
At RECARO, driver protection is about more than just giving you the impression you’re in safe hands. It’s our utmost priority.
