In 2016, Wilfried Eibach, head of the company since his father’s death in 1967, can look back on 65 successful business years. According to a long tradition our business partners, employees management and owners will celebrate this occasion with a traditional festival in Eibach’s home region at the end of September. The company from the German Sauerland region has experienced a lot of change since the last big anniversary five years ago. With the construction of the new production plant at the industrial park Wiethfeld, situated close to the headquarters in Finnentrop, Eibach has mastered by far the largest investment of its history. The plant serves as one of the world’s most advanced production plants for chassis components. At this plant, Eibach manufactures products for the business areas “aftermarket” and “OEM” by means of interlinked production.
In these days, owners and management are also proud of the decade-long training of young people. Today, more than 100 former trainees work in virtually all company departments.
Eibach has made a name for itself on all continents of the world, in line with its own motto “The Will To Win”. It has been recognised and awarded as a globally leading premium brand in various market segments such as motorsports. Special credit goes to Eibach Springs Inc. in the USA. The subsidiary is considered one of the most successful German family businesses in the USA. Next year, it will also celebrate its 30th anniversary. In China, which is by now the world’s largest automotive market, Eibach has established a production site in Taicang, near Shanghai. In addition to these three production sites, there are several sales subsidiaries in the UK, in Australia and South Africa with roughly 500 employees worldwide. They are supplemented by independent sales partners in around 80 countries.
Being a family business rich in tradition, emotional intelligence is an equally important part of Eibach’s corporate culture as loyalty, trustworthiness and mutual care. In order to also obtain and promote this philosophy in the area of Social Responsibility, management staff from all Eibach plants worldwide are represented as members of the “Board of Trustees”, the Eibach family foundation. Furthermore, the owners look back on 10 years of their non-profit Eibach foundation. The favourite project of Nina and Wilfried Eibach, the “Sauerländer Sprachsommer” (Sauerland Language Summer) – a summer camp for families with a migrant background – has been recognised at a supra-regional level for years.
