Production Expertise

More Than a Parts Supplier

The Past, Today and in the Future

Ferdinand Bilstein carries over 50,000 different products in its product range – some come from selected partner producers, some from OE-suppliers. In addition, there are numerous proprietary articles: febi products – Made in Ennepetal.

Ferdinand Bilstein has been active in the metal processing industry since 1844 and thus possesses lots of experience. In our in-house production - bilstein group Engineering - we manufacture various automotive parts – from chain tensioners to water and oil pumps to wheel hubs.

Our production area covers almost the entire production chain on 10,000 square metres: from toolmaking and machining to hardening, up to quality assurance with our own metrology room.

Compliance with the highest quality standards at every step is self-evident to us as a manufacturer.

Made in Germany

For us, "Made in Germany" is both a demand and a quality promise at the same time.

We are constantly expanding our product range – we have thereby also significantly increased the share of our in-house parts.

In addition, we continually invest in the modernisation of our in-house production. The entire area was moved into a new, ultra-modern hall in 2017. Our machines are state-of-the-art and adapted and improved with a view to future requirements – with automation being a key word.
