Current Business Development Webasto is one of the worlds top 100 automotive supplier. The company with registered offices in Stockdorf near Munich is among the top 15 in the supplier industry in Germany. Webasto is a market leader for both roof and temperature management systems. The group achieved sales of around 2.3 billion Euros with more than 9.500 employees in 2011. Locations Worldwide Webasto has over 50 locations throughout the world – more than 30 of them production sites. In Germany roof systems are made in Utting (Ammersee) and in Schierling near Regensburg. In Neubrandenburg you can find the world's largest production site for thermal systems. The convertible business unit, Webasto-Edscha Cabrio, produces at the sites in Hengersberg and Regensburg. The company founded its first international site back in 1974 in the USA near Detroit. The first Asian subsidiary with production plant was opened in 1978 in Japan (Hiroshima). Webasto is active in Korea through the joint venture Webasto Donghee since 1988. The market leader for roof systems has been active on China's growth market since 2001 – and now has five production sites. The European production sites can be found in France, Italy, Great Britain, Rumania, Slovakia, the Netherlands and Portugal. Innovations & Technological Leadership Webasto is constantly setting new standards for automobile roof systems. For example, the company extended its product portfolio in 2000 with a further business unit and also established itself as a supplier for convertible roof systems. Webasto was the first to manufacture a five-part retractable hardtop (steel convertible roof) with integrated glass sliding roof for the VW EOS. Webasto also takes the lead when it comes to using new materials. The company set up its own plastic competence centre in Schierling near Regensburg in 2003. Innovative roof elements of polycarbonate have been produced there since 2007. Webasto commissioned the second production line for polycarbonate components in October 2009 and thus underlined its determination to become the technological leader on this field. Because one of the biggest challenges facing the automotive industry at present is to reduce the fuel consumption of vehicles. This is why the topic of lightweight design and the use of materials such as polycarbonate will become increasingly important. In October 2010 Webasto presented the next generation of parking heaters for cars: Thermo Top Evo. The new heaters are the lightest in their class, weighing significantly less than their predecessors, and use very little fuel.
