17.04.2018 - Das BORBET DB8GT lässt den BMW Z3 jetzt noch sportlicher erscheinen.

Seit nunmehr 30 Jahren konzipiert und produziert das Familienunternehmen BORBET Premium-Leichtmetallräder.

Auf der Essen Motor Show 2017 präsentierte BORBET ein spektakuläres neues Leichtmetallrad - das BORBET DB8GT. Diese Felge wurde von BORBET speziell für den Einsatz auf der Rennstrecke konzipiert und von den Driftbrothers erfolgreich im Wettkampf erprobt. Nun hat sie der Leichtmetallexperte aus dem Hochsauerland mit Teilegutachten auch dem BMW Z3 auf den Leib geschneidert - in der stattlichen Größe von 8,5 x 18 Zoll mit den Einpresstiefen 40 und 30. Dennoch bleibt dieses Rad ein wahres Leichtgewicht und bringt lediglich knapp 8,0 Kilogramm auf die Waage.

Doch auch für andere Fahrzeuge ist das BORBET DB8GT ein perfekter Begleiter - mit Teilegutachten und Multiflexanbindung in den Lochkreisen 100/5 bis 120/5.
Die reduziert gestaltete Alu-Felge besticht auf den ersten Blick durch das glanzgedrehte Tiefbett und sechs Speichen, die sich in einem satten, warmen Anthrazit dezent absetzen. Um das Gewicht zu reduzieren, kommen bei der Herstellung des DB8GT die BORBET-Technologien FlowForming und Undercut zum Einsatz. Zudem bringt das Leichtgewicht alles mit, was auf der Rennstrecke oder während rasanter Ausfahrten zählt: Eine optimale Kraftübertragung, einen möglichst unverfälschten Wirkungsbereich des Fahrwerks und Stabilität unter höchsten Belastungen.

A big investment strengthens the automobile location Saxony.

After the ground-breaking ceremony in May and the topping-out ceremony in October 2015, the new plant BORBET Sachsen GmbH was ceremonial dedicated on the 20th October 2017. The minister of Saxony, Mr. Stanislaw Tillich, did not miss the chance and was amongst the numerous guests attending the official opening festivity.
After the short welcoming speech of Peter Wilhelm Borbet sen. and Rainer Dürkop, managing director of BORBET Sachsen GmbH, the minister of Saxony expressed the importance of this project, which has already generated about 500 new jobs in the region:
"The big investment of BORBET strengthens the competence of the automobile location Saxony and clarifies which successes are possible even in the rural areas. The family owned company with its worldwide locations and customers is an advantage for the region and therefore also for whole Saxony. I´m pleased that we can officially dedicate the new production plant just two years after the ground-breaking ceremony. The production has been running full speed for several months - a significant sign for the locals that their region is an attractive work and apprenticeship location and therefore a good and solid homeland."
Also for BORBET, one of the worldwide leading manufacturers of light alloy wheels the new location is a profit. Saxony is an automobile country with important customers and good skilled employees with lightweight construction competence on site. Furthermore, many new employees had a training period in one of the four other BORBET production plants in Germany, such as in Bad Langensalza in Thuringia. This positive qualification helped the new plant to a quick start enabling high quality wheels in customers order to leave the factory.

It is to be expected that by the end of 2017 around 2 million wheels will leave the production plant and be delivered to customers.
The numbers clarify, that the BORBET typical quality characteristic "Made in Germany" now also has reached the diligent Saxons. Therefore, the opening of the new plant was a forward-looking and sustainable celebrating reason for all attending employees and guests.
The "Jägerkapelle" Orchestra from Hesborn attended to help make a good musical atmosphere.

07.09.2017 - Experience the future and celebrate 30 years of BORBET design A during the IAA 2017.

The BORBET booth will once again certainly be one of the hotspots during the IAA 2017 in Frankfurt. The trade fair causing the hearts of millions of automobile fans from all over the world to beat faster from the 14th till 24th of September. Next to other novelties, the light alloy expert from the Hochsauerland region will be presenting wheel specific refinements and be celebrating a very special anniversary.

Innovative production processes, a severe quality management and motor sport experience ensure the million times proven quality of BORBET light alloy wheels. This concentrated knowledge has effected the production of light alloy wheels since 1987. BORBET started this development with a real masterpiece - the BORBET A-wheel.
This wheel embossed generations of automobile fans worldwide and still enjoys great popularity. Therefore, the 30th anniversary of this wheel, taking place in 2017, represents a milestone in the company history. For this birthday celebration, BORBET updates this German tuning icon with a new design "A". While the original 16" A-wheel remains in the Borbet program as an evergreen, the new edition of the legend continues: The new BORBET A in the category "Sports" a modified design with the stately sizes of 8.0 x 18 inch and 8.5 x 19 inch is now available.

In addition, the Borbet "Premium" category continues to redefine as shown through the new BORBET BY-wheel. Created through a mixture of the original BORBET B from 1987 and the present BORBET Y. Design BY, thanks to the FlowForming technology is a considerably reduced weight wheel. 20 delicate spokes designed in such a way that their arrangement leads to a charming network of alignment and interesting light refractions. In the stately sizes of 8.0 x 20 inch and 10.0 x 21 inch, it will set various premium automobiles into the limelight in an extreme and individual way. A further highlight from the "Premium" category will be the world premiere of the VTX-wheel, especially designed for the aftermarket.

However, not only this look back awards the IAA fair slogan "experience future" a very special and sporty note. BORBET continues to invest in research and development, the light alloy expert presents various novelties in the range of AERO, LIGHTWEIGHT and INDIVIDUALITY. Numerous internal studies with renowned partners show how light weight construction or surface finishing due to pressure, colour and lacquer will influence the future of the wheel. Always upfront - the innovations "Made by BORBET". Experience at firsthand in hall 4.0 booth C08.

24.08.2017 - BORBET-Auszubildende - Gemeinsam stark!

Zum Ausbildungsbeginn fand am Freitag, den 18.08., für die BORBET-Azubis der Standorte im Hochsauerland erstmalig ein Teambuilding statt.
Nach der Begrüßung durch die Ausbildungsleiterin Carolin Mittermaier hatten 37 junge Menschen die Chance ihre Teamfähigkeit zu beweisen.

Unter der Leitung von Markus Lichte, Organisator und BORBET-Mitarbeiter, wurde mit Spiel, Sport und Spaß das Ziel verfolgt, den Zusammenhalt und das gegenseitige Verständnis der Auszubildenden aus unterschiedlichsten Ausbildungsjahren und Bereichen aufzubauen und zu stärken.

Auch die Leiter der jeweiligen Fachabteilungen zeigten vollen Einsatz und kümmerten sich nebenbei um das leibliche Wohl aller Teilnehmer.

04.08.2017 - Ausbildungsbeginn bei BORBET

BORBET hieß am Dienstag, den 01.08.2017, die neuen Auszubildende an den Standorten in Solingen, Thüringen und dem Hochsauerland herzlich willkommen.

Several hard facts have convinced the wheel expert from the Sauerland region: Saxony is an automobile country. All-important automobile producers from Germany are located here, with their skilled personnel, on the 3 cornered borders of Saxony, Poland and Czech Republic. Not only the local competence in light construction played a decisive role.

Thanks to the high acceptance which the BORBET GROUP has gained from international automobile producers, the demand for light alloy wheels has increased enormously so that the previous production capacity was no longer sufficient. For this reason BORBET made an extensive location analysis for a new production area. Locations in Thuringia, Brandenburg, Poland, Hungary, Brazil as well as several in Saxony have been analysed but at the end Kodersdorf has been chosen.

After a long planning and preparation phase the official ground breaking ceremony for the new BORBET location took place on the 13th May 2015. Director Peter Wilhelm Borbet opened the building phase ceremonial accompanied by Premier Stanislaw Tillich, District Administrator Bernd Lange, Mayor René Schöne and several political and economic representatives. After only five months of ground and straightening work as well as the construction of the hall it was possible to celebrate the topping-out ceremony mid October 2015. Hereafter the construction of the production line, with an imposing roof area of 22,100 square meters including the plant construction at the workshop, was started. About 80 till 90 tons of aluminum are prepared every day from five melting and swarf furnaces for 32 low-pressure die casting machines.
To start wheel production as soon as possible the construction had to make progress efficiently. Already in June 2016 the production area Kodersdorf was on the verge of starting production. The first construction phase was completed - including the complex infrastructure of electricity, water, information technology, compressed air system, exhaust-air plant and above all the core of production: Eight modern casting machines, two X-ray lines, one heat treatment facility and three machining centers. In a second construction stage the capacity was duplicated till end of July 2016. The number of employees reached 400 at the end of 2016 - 357 industrial and 43 clerks. Already in November the first stock with a capacity of 36,000 was brought on line and by the end of 2016 490,000 wheels have been dispatched.
With its 9 inland and foreign production areas with a total of 4,600 employees, BORBET is one of the worldwide leading producers of light alloy wheels and supplies the complete automobile industry as well as the national and international aftermarket.
How does it look today at BORBET in Kodersdorf? The implementation of the facilities as well as the plant and equipment is completed and a further automatic warehouse with a capacity for 17,000 polished wheels will be ready from spring 2017.
From now on the focus is based on the further education of the already existing 420 employees who produce wheels in a 4-shift-system. But there is no end in sight - during this year the number of industrial employees should raise to 440 and change to a 5-shift-system working around the clock with the target to dispatch around 2.5 million light alloy wheels from BORBET in Saxony to the whole world.

17.07.2017 - Im Stammwerk von BORBET wird am Werkzeugbau gefeilt und weiter ausgebaut.

BORBET gehört zum Hochsauerland wie Räder zum Auto und ein hauseigener Werkzeugbau gehört beim Leichtmetallexperten selbstverständlich dazu.

Denn nur dieser garantiert eine schnelle und flexible Herstellung von Werkzeugen, wie z.B. Kokillen, dem wichtigsten Bauteil der Räderproduktion. Neben dem Kokillenbau spielt die Wartung und Reparatur bestehender Gussformen eine zentrale Rolle bei der Herstellung von Leichtmetallrädern.

Schon länger stand eine Entscheidung zur Erweiterung des Werkzeugbaus in der BORBET GRUPPE an. Durch den Neubau des Werkes BORBET Sachsen in Kodersdorf wurde diese positiv bekräftigt. Aus strategischen Gründen entschied sich das Management für den Ausbau am Stammwerk in Hallenberg-Hesborn.
Hier wird nun eine Halle auf einer Fläche von 1.130 m² direkt an den bestehenden Werkzeugbau angebaut. Der Ausbau der Halle erfolgt bis Ende September 2017 und bis spätestens Anfang 2018 soll das gesamte Projekt abgeschlossen sein.
Neben dem Werkzeugbau findet dann in einem abgetrennten Bereich die Lehrwerkstatt ihren Platz. Die neue räumliche Trennung verbessert die Rahmenbedingungen für die Auszubildenden, da die Grundkenntnisse nun abseits des Produktionsalltags erlernt und vertieft werden können. Die vermittelten Fertigkeiten werden anschließend direkt bei der Herstellung einzelner Zubehör- und Ersatzteile praktisch angewandt. Eine perfekte Kombination aus Lernatmosphäre und Praxisnähe.

Denn bei BORBET wird eben nicht nur im Werkzeugbau und in der Lehrwerkstatt ständig gefeilt, sondern stets auch an den optimalen Voraussetzungen für die Mitarbeiter. Auch das macht BORBET zu einem echten Familienunternehmen, das inzwischen weltweit rund 4.700 Mitarbeiter/-innen an neun Standorten beschäftigt. Neben den sechs deutschen Standorten in Hallenberg-Hesborn, Medebach, Bad Langensalza, Solingen, Neuching und Kodersdorf zählen Tochterunternehmen mit Fertigungsstätten in Südafrika, den USA und Österreich zur BORBET GRUPPE.

24.04.2017 - 1000 tuned up automobiles – and BORBET again right in the middle. At the Tuning World Lake Constance 2017.

Once again from April 28th till May 1st 2017: the Tuning World 2017 in Friedrichshafen brings cool wheels and hot cars together - as well as all tuning enthusiasts from near and far.

After three years of abstinence, BORBET is back again - with selected tuning wheels, groundbreaking designs and surface studies as well as several novelties. Starting with the new edition of the tuning icon BORBET A over the drift sports idol BORBET DB8/GT to the new BY-wheel. The most agile BORBET wheels get together in hall B1 booth 105, not only the 1000 tuned up automobiles give the visitors a reason to look surprised.

So that this reunion with BORBET leaves an impression, you can get yourself pictured from our speeding camera and acquire a BORBET A shirt for only € 10.00. The best of this BORBET jubilee campaign: - a donation of 5 Euros per shirt will be made to the organization "Doctor's Without Limits". Therefore, there are many good reasons to visit BORBET at this cool tuning event on the three-corner border.

28.04.2017 - Girls´ Day 2017 bei BORBET

Auch in diesem Jahr öffnete BORBET am Stammsitz in Hallenberg-Hesborn die Tore seiner Ausbildungswerkstatt und hieß 9 Schülerinnen zum "Girls´ Day" willkommen.

Am 27. April 2017 war es wieder soweit: Mädchen der Klassen 6 bis 9 konnten unseren Azubis in der hauseigenen Ausbildungswerkstatt über die Schulter schauen und hautnah erleben, was es heißt in einem "Männerberuf" zu arbeiten.
Die angehenden Werkzeug-, Industrie- und Zerspanungsmechaniker vermittelten den Schülerinnen einen Überblick über die wichtigsten Grundlagen der manuellen und maschinellen Herstellung, wie z.B. das Anreißen, Körnen, Fasenfeilen, Bohren, Fräsen und Drehen. Als Highlight des Tages konnten die Mädels selbst mit anpacken und so ihr eigenes Werkstück anfertigen.

Die Auszubildenden und der Ausbildungsleiter Raimund Clement sind sich einig: "Wir sind beim nächsten Girls´ Day wieder mit von der Partie".

26.04.2017 - BORBET wieder mega sportlich. Beim MegaSports in Sundern.

Als langjähriger Partner ist BORBET auch in 2017 wieder auf dem MegaSports, die in diesem Jahr am 29. und 30.04 in Sundern stattfindet.

Das Event hat einen festen Platz im Kalender von Bike-Begeisterten aus der ganzen Bundesrepublik und bietet ein buntes Rahmenprogramm für die ganze Familie. Vom SKS Bike-Marathon über den BORBET Bike Biathlon bis hin zum Sparkassen Nachwuchsrennen messen sich hier die Besten auf zwei Rädern.

Ein besonderes Highlight ist das BORBET Bike Biathlon Finale am Sonntag, das Promis wie zum Beispiel den Schalker Euro-Fighter Ingo Anderbrügge und die besten Teilnehmer der Vorläufe zusammenbringt - auf vier Laser-Schießanlagen mit Spinning-Bikes. Das Finale wird mit 8 Teams ausgetragen, bestehend aus je einem Qualifikant und einem Biathlon-Star. Damit auch die Besucher ihre strahlendste Siegerpose festhalten können, ist BORBET mit der Fotobox vor Ort. Auch für sie gilt ganz olympisch: Dabei sein ist alles!

24.04.2017 - New challenge – proven and tested wheel design: world record trunk line Dakar2Moscow

The BORBET CC wheel in action for the new world record attempt of Rainer Zietlow

BORBET expands the long-term partnership with the team of Rainer Zietlow and supports him at his latest world record tour. This time the starting point is the city Dakar - from there the team starts with its new VW Amarok V6 fitted with BORBET CC wheels towards Moscow.

The impulse to do good things and the passion for extreme driving conditions motivates this Mannheim guy again and again. His 12th tour has started on Saturday: Rainer Zietlow and his team will attempt the 8,000 km long tour with all its obstacles and adversities within only 4 days.

For the last tours the BORBET C2C wheel, which Borbet designed especially for the "Cape 2 Cape" challenge, was in action. This year BORBET will start with another proven design: the CC wheel from the "Commercial Wheels" category. The slow-burner of the BORBET program convinces all along the line with its powerful optic in 7.0 x 17 inch and offset 50. Beneath several other applications, the all-rounder with its dynamic and clear lines fits perfectly on the new VW Amarok V6.

As in the past, the team uses the tour for a charitable campaign: In Dakar a donation of 1,500 Euros will be handed over to the SOS Children Village Charity. BORBET wishes Rainer Zietlow, Petr Bakanov and Alexander Pogodin a safe and successful trip on the BORBET CC wheels.

10.04.2017 - Berufsfelderkundung bei BORBET

Bei BORBET steht die Ausbildung junger Fachkräfte seit jeher im Fokus.

Für die Aktion "Berufsfelderkundung im HSK" öffnete BORBET seine Türen, um interessierten Schülern einen praxisnahen Einstieg in das Thema "Ausbildung bei BORBET" zu ermöglichen.
Am 05. April war es dann soweit: Zwei Achtklässler ließen sich in der hauseigenen Ausbildungswerkstatt vom Ausbilder Raimund Clement und den BORBET Azubis einen Überblick über die Tätigkeitsfelder von Industriemechanikern (Fachrichtung Betriebstechnik), Werkzeugmechanikern (Fachbereich Formentechnik), Zerspanungsmechanikern (Fachbereich: Dreh- und Frästechnik) sowie Maschinen- und Anlagenführern (m/w) geben.
Auch an Praxisnähe mangelte es nicht: Die Schüler wurden mit kleinen Arbeitsproben und praktischen Übungen in den Azubi-Alltag eingebunden.

Insgesamt war dies ein informativer Tag für beide Seiten mit zahlreichen Gesprächs- und Austauschmöglichkeiten. Für BORBET steht fest: Beim nächsten Berufsfelderkundungstag sind wir wieder mit dabei.

30.01.2017 - BORBET makes Kodersdorf to Saxonys capital city for wheels

Till now Upper Lusatia was known for the traditional "extraordinary timber framed" houses, which is one of the oldest methods of light construction principles. Due to the new BORBET factory in Kodersdorf, worldwide recognized light alloy wheels find their way here and have created useful jobs.

Several hard facts have convinced the wheel expert from the Sauerland region: Saxony is an automobile country.
