Teijin Automotive Technologies combines the global expertise of Continental Structural Plastics, CSP Victall, Inapal, Benet Automotive and Teijin Automotive Center Europe to create a powerhouse of vehicle lightweighting, design and engineering expertise.

We are a proven manufacturer of highly-engineered products for dynamic market segments, including automotive, heavy truck, marine and recreational vehicles. Our global manufacturing and compounding footprint enables us to supply consistent materials and components to customers across North America, Europe and Asia – a capability no other composite manufacturer can provide.

Our advanced engineering team understands composite materials better than any other team in the industry. We develop proprietary composite formulations, produce them, and see them through the manufacturing process to meet the design and regulatory needs of our customers all over the world. Today, we are using this vast knowledge of composites to explore a variety of options, including multi-material approaches, that reduce weight while meeting rigorous design and crash test specifications.
