RECARO Automotive Seating has been setting standards in automotive seating for decades, having presented the first sports seat for cars in 1965. The first retrofit sports seat, the world’s lightest car seat, the most innovative commercial vehicle seat and new sport seats in a modern composite design also come from RECARO.
Since 2016, RECARO Automotive Seating is the premium brand of Adient, a global leader in automotive seating – with lean structures, short decision paths and fascinating products. RECARO Automotive Seating uses the brand RECARO under a license of the RECARO Holding.
RECARO Automotive Seating consists of two units: RECARO Performance Car Seating and RECARO Commercial Vehicle Seating. Our customers include prominent, globally active manufacturers of automobiles and commercial vehicles. Through retail sales, the company also provides end customers with aftermarket seats and motorsports customers with racing shells.
Around 1,000 employees work at RECARO Automotive Seating’s global locations: Germany (Kirchheim/Teck, Kaiserslautern, Saarlouis), Poland (Skarbimierz), Slovakia (Žilina), North America (Detroit, Plymouth), Mexico (Lerma), and Japan (Higashiomi).
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.
