11. May 2017

Gebauer & Griller is one of the world’s leading providers of cables for the automotive industry.

Gebauer & Griller manufactures cables, wires and wiring looms for the automotive, elevator and escalator industry and for special industrial applications. The company is one of the world’s leading providers of top-quality cables for the automotive industry, distributing some 2.5 million km of cables per annum.

Gebauer & Griller’s global breakthrough came in 1999, when the company launched its first patented aluminium connector technology. The product was lighter and cheaper than the copper cabling that had previously been used, and really caught the car industry’s attention. Gebauer & Griller’s order book is now a Who's Who of automobile manufacturers, including Mercedes, Audi, Volkswagen, Ford and Chrysler.

Electromobility has provided a further boost for the technology, and the first major contracts for eCars in the USA are already in the bag.

Approximately 88% of sales are made in the automotive sector, and the company’s 3,200 employees at its 12 sites achieved a turnover of EUR 425 million in the 2015/2016 financial year. In addition to three facilities in Austria, there are factories in the Czech Republic, Moldavia, Mexico, India and China, amongst others.
