Contract Manufacturing

Experienced industrialiser with start-up mentality


New standards in industrial contract manufacturing within Europe


Our skills learnt over more than 100 years: innovative strength, team spirit, regional anchoring with an international network, quality awareness, plus a pioneering spirit – all this forms the basis of Steyr Automotive today.


Our modern infrastructure enables our production capacities to be flexible and adaptable and our production processes follow a criteria of efficiency and sustainability. In the very near future, Steyr Automotive will operate CO2-neutrally.


Our location in the heart of Europe allows for strong logistic connections; our employees are highly qualified and our development and production competence are combined all at one site.


With these benefits combined, Steyr Automotive is setting new standards in Europe in the area of contract manufacturing. There is currently no other supplier who could operate to this scale and with the individuality offered, depending on our customer requirements.


Steyr Automotive offers itself as a reliable partner for start-ups as well as for discontinued products or top covers of established OEMs.
