Success Story

Metallwerk Biebighäuser GmbH was founded in 1932 as a metal processing company and has been a supplier to the automotive industry since 1948. Today, we look back on a success story of almost 90 years. From the very beginning on we specialised in the manufacture of pipe fittings, pipe system assemblies and other connecting components; and later we expanded our range to include fine blanking parts. The technologies of pipe forming, pipe connection and joining by welding, soldering and other thermal joining techniques have been continuously developed since then. Today, they are our core competence for the realisation of sophisticated customer applications.

Our own technology centre with development capacities, CAD design and our own in-house tool-making workshop put us in the position to design specific products and assemblies. The further development of existing customer specifications creates the basis for the requisite production facilities, their continuous improvement and the implementation of efficient and commercially viable production processes.

We see ourselves as a strong and flexible partner to our customers and thus want to make an innovative contribution to the design and manufacture of the required products. Thanks to our advanced skills in all of the company’s core fields of business as well as our outstanding product quality and reliable supply chain, we have become a dependable partner to the automotive industry.

Today, the Biebighäuser Group comprises not only Metallwerk Biebighäuser GmbH, but also Biebighäuser Kunststofftechnik GmbH, Biebighäuser Verwaltung- und Beteiligungsgesellschaft mbH and Biebighäuser Slovakia s.r.o., a branch in Slovakia.
