Light alloy wheels are key when it comes to shaping the safety, look and ride of a vehicle. That's why light alloy wheels need to meet a wide range of demands: they must look right, be as low-weight as possible, and offer uncompromising reliability. However, BORBET are proving once again that light alloy wheels can do so much more besides.

Adding to the ranks of the millions of BORBET wheels that are tried and tested on a daily basis around the globe, a real jewel will be celebrating its world premiere at this year's Essen Motor Show: the BORBET Aero. This wheel's distinctive appearance truly sets it apart. The large, full-width spokes draw the eye, lending the vehicle an impressive visual base and presenting it in its best light. The striking shape is further distinguished through the use of BORBET ExaPeel technology, where a µm-accurate laser beam is used to burn multi-coloured graphics and lettering into the surface of the wheel with absolute precision, ensuring unparalleled customisation for your vehicle.

And it's not just design for design's sake: The BORBET Aero is the first wheel from BORBET that has been developed with a focus on achieving the greatest possible efficiency and aerodynamism. Drag has been reduced and air turbulence optimised. As well as aiding the smooth running of the vehicle, the main benefit of these developments is increased energy efficiency.
This makes the BORBET Aero yet another example of how the family-run company combines expertise accumulated over the course of 130 years of metals processing, with innovative, cutting-edge production techniques. The wheel will be presented alongside other BORBET innovations at the Essen Motor Show 2016. It is exclusively available in "dark titan polished" in a 7.5 x 20 inch size, with an offset of 45 and a 112 bolt circle.

25.11.2016 - The BORBET A: 30 years a legend

The family company BORBET offers a wide selection of high-quality light alloy wheels to suit every taste. Innovative manufacturing procedures, strict quality assurance and experience gained from the world of motorsports all safeguard the quality of BORBET light alloy wheels, which has been tried and tested millions of times. There are good reasons that BORBET, partner to the international automotive industry, has won many awards. The owner-managed company has spent four generations - spanning 135 years - in metalworking. Its accumulated expertise has been poured solely into the production of light alloy wheels since 1987. BORBET started on this path with a true masterpiece: the BORBET A wheel. That light alloy wheel inspired an entire generation of car fans worldwide, and continues to enjoy great popularity. The 30th anniversary of this wheel, being celebrated in the coming year, represents a milestone in BORBET's company history.

In recognition of this milestone anniversary, BORBET is giving a new shine to this German tune-up icon. While the original A wheel continues to be part of the programme as an evergreen product, a new edition of the legend is also joining the ranks: the BORBET A in a modified design and superb 8.0 x 18 inches and 8.5 x 19 inches sizes.

The iconic five-spoke shape of the classic has been retained, and is beautifully presented with minimal and striking lines. Towards the centre, the wheel deepens in a straight-lined star shape, opening into a five-corner lens - a first in the BORBET product range. The spokes of the new edition of the A wheel run to the rim edge, emphasising the full size of the wheel and masterfully setting the stage for the vehicle.

This Sports wheel is available in classic "sterling silver" and powerful, matte black. The dark surface finish is particularly impressive with the silver-polished spoke edges, and is therefore also called "black matte spoke edge polished" for short hand. The new edition of the BORBET A is available from spring 2017 in bolt circles between 5/108 and 5/120.

25.11.2016 - An impressive combination: the brand new BORBET BY

This family-run Hochsauerland company offers the right wheel to suit any taste, from sporty to classic, and fit for a huge number of fields of application. To coincide with this year's Essen Motor Show, BORBET is expanding its product range to present something very special: the BORBET BY.

With the world premiere of the BY, BORBET has developed a light alloy wheel that beautifully combines two classic looks. The 20-spoke wheel is so subtle that at first glance it seems to be a combination of the Y-spoke design and the classic double-spoke look. In this arrangement, the delicate spokes create an appealing meshwork of lines, leading to interesting light play even when stationary. The BORBET BY combines understatement and ornamental opulence, setting a truly premium and individual tone for your vehicle.

Those who love exceptional refinement can also choose between two finishes for the BY wheel design: as well as classic "brilliant silver", BORBET also offers the lavish "titan polished matt" finish, with a high polish that further emphasises the Y spoke design. The BORBET BY will be available in the Premium category in substantial sizes ranging between 8.0 x 20 inches and 10.0 x 21 inches.

21.11.2016 - BORBET presents two world premieres at the Essen Motor Show.

BORBET, the light alloy wheel expert from the Hochsauerland region presents as a special highlight, an absolute innovation in the matter of aero dynamic and CO2 reduction, during the Essen Motorshow. Furthermore for the first time two favoured classics from the Borbet history experience a comeback in a new look. Therefore visitors can be curious for the premiere and could take home an individual souvenir from the BORBET booth with the "BORBET Speed Camera-Photo".

Beneath the three newcomers BORBET also presents the product novelties DY, RB and XRS. The light alloy wheels DY, RB and XRS are all from the category "Premium" and inspire through their wheel specific refinements:

What really outstands the RB light alloy wheel is its 20 spokes, visually arranged into five groups, presenting a particularly elegant design. This gives the wheel power and presence, whilst it is also delicate and subtle. The angular lines finish this piece beautifully, giving the new RB wheel rim design a snappy and sporty optic. The BORBET RB is available in the impressive sizes 18 and 19-inch, in the colours "sterling silver" and "black polished".

The new DY wheel design is especially elaborate. The five double-spokes extend from the concealed centre of the wheel to the rim in a slender line, resulting in the lean light alloy wheel being provided with a luxurious presence and a noticeable elegance. The proportions of the spokes provide them with an ornamental appearance and the conspicuous look is accentuated by the colours "brilliant silver" and "dark grey polished matt". The new DY wheel design is available in the dimensions 8.0 x 18", 8.5 x 19" and 8.5 x 20".

The XRS wheel design was created by the designers with attention to detail. The five spokes extend radially from the wheel hub to the outer bead, thereby forming a slight concave arch. The bead of the wheel is extremely narrow here, resulting in an extremely high quality, noble and sportingly-lean look. This means that the wheel also appears very present and at the same time elegant and dynamic even in the larger sizes. The impressive appearance of the XRS wheel is accentuated by the colour "black polished glossy". The BORBET XRS is available in the sizes 8.0 x 18'', 8.5 x 19'', 9.5 x 19'' in addition to the magnificent sizes 8.5 x 20'' and 10.5 x 20''.

The BORBET team in hall 10 booth C102/C112 is looking for several exciting conversations and a successful fair.

17.10.2016 - Tradition connects: The BORBET LD exclusively for the Land Rover Defender

BORBET presents a wheel design that is especially for the Land Rover Defender: the BORBET LD. Especially robust, extremely durable and thereby explicitly designed to match the Defender, the LD wheel design is a perfect addition for fans of this off-road legend.

The uncompromising reliability of the BORBET lightweight alloy wheels is regularly underlines by the enormous loads they are subjected to on race and rally tracks. But that is not all: BORBET is also able to look back on last year´s world record drive from the North Cape to Cape Agulhas in South Africa.

14.10.2016 - Developed for motor sport: the BORBET DB8/GT

BORBET, a family company in its fourth generation, has 135 years of experience in metalworking. Since 1987, this expertise has been exclusively applied to the construction, design, and production of light alloy wheels. From the Classic BORBET A through to many key pieces in the company's current product portfolio: BORBET's quality has been proven a million times over in daily use. This success story is based on accumulated expertise, coupled with innovative manufacturing processes.



Alongside stringent and integrated quality management to guarantee the durability and uncompromising safety of its products, BORBET also draws on expertise from the world of motor sport to inform its development processes. The dynamic character and reliability of a wheel are key in motor sport.

To achieve optimum power transmission, undistorted support for the chassis, and stability under very high loads demands a beautifully aligned combination of lightweight design and robust structure. It is those requirements that BORBET measures its latest development against: the BORBET DB8/GT was designed exclusively for use in international drifting.

This aluminium rim is immediately captivating with its streamlined design. It features a high-sheen drop centre and six spokes, which are subtly distinctive in rich, warm anthracite. BORBET FlowForming and Undercut technologies are used in the manufacturing of the DB8/GT to reduce its weight. Even at the substantial sizes of 9.5 x 18 inches and 10.5 x 18 inches, this wheel remains a true lightweight, weighing in at just 8 kilograms.
The wheel is being put through its paces by brothers Joe and Elias Hountondji, BORBET's brand ambassadors in the world of drifting. The Swabian drivers with African roots are amongst the best drivers in Europe, and used the DB8/GT for the first time last weekend during the final round of the "King of Europe" series on the Slovakia Ring. The brothers drove their team to championship victory in their thunderbolts - a 7.0L 630HP V8, custom built on the basis of a Nissan S13, and a 6.8L 570HP BMW E30. BORBET uses the telemetry installed in the cars to gain valuable insights into the interaction between wheel, chassis, and driving dynamics, and incorporates these into further refining its wheels. Both the vehicle data and feedback from Joe Hountondji are overwhelmingly positive: "We expected a lot when we heard there would be an 8 kg wheel from BORBET.

This is the case with the Ford EcoSport mini SUV and the compact Mazda 2 or Opel Corsa E, for example.



The fact that BORBET, a family-owned company has been active in the metalworking industry for decades is confirmed by its product range: the traditional manufacturer presents innovative technical highlights, convinces with the highest possible premium quality and enthuses with spectacular designs. Not only will you find evergreens here such as the BORBET A from the year 1987, you will also find red-hot light metal alloy treats and wheel classics including the BORBET F, a wheel that especially captivates with its diversity.

Available as 4-hole and 5-hole versions in sizes of between 6.0x15" and 7.5x19", this wheel can be put to a considerable number of uses. With an offset depth of 40 with a 100/4 bolt circle, the rim from the BORBET "Classic" category is an exact fit for the latest Ford EcoSport, Opel Corsa or the Mazda 2 models. Not only the connection and the quality leave nothing to be desired however, the BORBET F wheel design is also incredibly variable: the five radial spokes have a special effect both due to its concave form that provides it with a special presence as a result of the refractions of light and the discrete edge of the spokes that especially attract attention. The spokes that extend to the rim flange ensure that even the small BORBET F versions have a full optical presence. This especially harmonious language of form discretely and at the same time strongly, accentuates the presence of compact speedies, thereby ensuring an individual appearance.

The BORBET F wheel is available in the classic colour "brilliant silver" and the sportingly powerful "black glossy".

19.05.2015 - Contrast-rich and harmonious: BORBET CW4 rims on the new Ford Mondeo

BORBET reliably provides fans of sporty rides with the latest wheel designs - and the CW4 wheel design fits perfectly on the new Ford Mondeo. Quality and dynamic design make the CW4 an ideal companion.

The lightweight alloy expert BORBET is known for its expertise, over 100 years of history in metalworking, and the latest, most innovative production techniques. These attributes allow the Hochsauerland-based heritage manufacturer to craft high-quality, lightweight alloy wheels. BORBET continues to amaze with fresh designs and an expanding product range. Whether new finishes, updated wheel sizes or completely new rim designs: the large selection of lightweight alloy wheels is always in motion and leaves no wish unfulfilled.

With the CW4 in the Sports category, BORBET offers a rim that is distinguished by its impressive design. The ten double spokes run almost parallel from the rim flange to the centre, emphasising the overall size of the wheel. A carefully positioned ridge in the spokes and a radius that leads to the centre round out the rim's aesthetics. These provide an additional layer of visual depth and interesting light refraction. With its spirited personality, the BORBET CW4 lends an especially contrast-rich, yet harmonious underscore to vehicles with clear, calm lines.

The CW4 rims sized between 17" and 19" not only fit perfectly on the new Ford Mondeo, they also give a very individual look to the latest model build. The CW4 rim design is available in classic Sterling Silver, vibrant Black Green Glossy and Black Orange Glossy, as well as refined Black Polished Matte.

29.04.2015 - THE BORBET S WHEEL – POWERFUL ELEGANCE FOR THE AUDI A4 AND AUDI SQ5.

The BORBET S from the "Premium" category not only convinces Audi fans with its powerful-dynamic design, the innovative undercut process makes the wheel a perfect addition to the vehicles made by the automotive manufacturer from Ingolstadt: more driving fun and less weight with a maximum of quality and stability. The S wheel leaves nothing to be desired.

Tradition, innovation and an innovative spirit are catchwords that are strongly connected to BORBET. The traditional manufacturer repeatedly presents surprises in the form of innovative technologies and fresh wheel designs. The latest coup from the family-owned company: the BORBET S.

With the S design, BORBET has developed an alloy wheel that enthuses with a powerful look and a harmonious symbiosis of a clear line elegance and a dynamic design. The use of the undercut process also results in a considerable weight reduction. With this precision process, all of the non-bearing areas of the rear rim bed is removed down to the last millimetre by means of automatic milling. The result: the wheel provides the high and non-compromising stability that can be expected from BORBET but with a reduced weight.

The spoke structure of the S wheel is radial with the five spokes reinterpreting the propeller design approach. The concave, lively momentum provides the BORBET S wheel with an additional depth, its full dimension being underlined, it thereby being provided with a clear and impressively dynamic look. The Audi models especially gain an effect with the S wheel design. The wheel powerfully puts the clear design language of the vehicle that Audi has a name for in the limelight, thereby ensuring an impressive appearance. With an offset of 35, the S in the size 8.5 x 19" is an exact fit for the Audi A4 with the wheel offset of 45 being ideally suited to the SQ5, the power SUV from Audi.

The S wheel in the "Premium" category is available in a wide range of colours. This ensures that nothing is left to be desired: whether in an extravagant "black red matt", classic "brilliant silver", discrete-sporty "graphite polished matt" or the stylish "silver black glossy", the BORBET S ensures a successful appearance in sizes of between 17 and an impressive 22 inches.

24.04.2015 - BORBET PRESENTS: THE NEW S-DESIGN

Motor sport proven a number of times and tried and tested on the roads millions of times, the reliability and robustness of BORBET wheels are unique in the world. The design of the wheel is not short-changed either: the company from the Hochsauerland area of Germany inspire with innovative wheel designs and spectacular surface treatments.

The BORBET XRT is an example of the symbiosis of quality, innovation and design. The classic radial design of the five double spokes looks classic-elegant and sporty at the same time. Not only does the "Premium" category wheel look good, it is also extremely wear-resistant and provides an unadulterated driving experience. Characteristics that the XRT has been able to prove with numerous motor sport successes. The spirited wheel is just the right match for the new VW Passat. The clear and powerful design of the car from Wolfsburg is provided with a perfect accentuation with the XRT design. The wheel is available with various offsets of 18", 19" and an impressive 20".

There are also a wealth of colours to choose from: the wheel radiates in a harmonious "graphite polished", the classic "black glossy" and "brilliant silver", the sporty "racetrack red polished" and the striking "reflectic".

20.04.2015 - DAS BORBET CC – THE TIMELESS CLASSIC IS BACK IN STOCK

The light alloy experts at BORBET understand their trade and have been combining tradition and innovative strength for more than 100 years.

At BORBET, new production techniques are being continually researched and patented, in addition to existing products being developed further in order to ensure that none of the customers´ wishes remain unfulfilled.

In addition to the 15" to 17" versions, the wheel is now in stock again in the sizes 8.5x18" and 8.5x19". The Cc wheel is a real all-rounder with its striking lines and the timeless design. The two colour versions are also convincing: the "crystal silver" and the noble "black polished matt" that are both suitable for winter use, provide the wheel with a special touch.

The attractive, robust and windproof and weatherproof CC wheel cuts a splendid figure on standard SUVs such as the VW Touareg and the Porsche Cayenne.

15.04.2015 - BORBET PRESENTS THE F DESIGN IN A NEW SIZE AND A FRESH LOOK

The F wheel from BORBET is a real treat: the carefully balanced design combines classical forms with dynamic details, providing the F design with a calm, confident and fresh appearance. In terms of looks, the 5-spoke wheel is an ideal companion for numerous vehicle models.

This diversity is also reflected in the possibilities of use: with a choice of twelve different bolt circles and the 4-hole and 5-hole connection, the F wheel is a real all-rounder with its colours "black glossy" and "brilliant silver".

COMPANY NEWS

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.

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.

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

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. 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.

12.12.2016 - Borbet Sponsering for „Ärzte ohne Grenzen“

"Sport, Culture and Public spirited - these definitions describe BORBETs social and corporate engagement, which range from regional sport- sponsoring right up tolinternational organisations such as "Ärzte ohne Grenzen"

Borbet supports Sport and athletes in the amateur as well as in the professional sector and promotes ambitions and talents from today and tomorrow.
Next to Sport promotion, the family business supports social projects and facilities in the Borbet location areas such as the local Fire brigade, and local sports clubs for the youth.

BORBETs engagement does not only support regional projects but the traditional family business is also internationally engaged as for example the organization
"Ärzte ohne Grenzen" (Doctor's without limits).
To celebrate the anniversary of the original Borbet A, Borbet designed a T-Shirt in a limited edition which were presented and sold during the Motor Show in Essen
in aid of this project. Thanks to the vast interest in this T-Shirt an interesting sum was achieved which Borbet rounded up to 2000,00 Euros. This money goes directly to "Ärzte ohne Grenzen" who will invest it in one of their many projects.

19.10.2016 - BORBET exhibits at the IZB in Wolfsburg

lightweight alloy and passion - that is the philosophy of the traditional company BORBET, whose roots reach back till 1881. With its 135 years of company history the family owned business concern BORBET is one of the leading manufacturers of premium light alloy wheels and as such has achieved repeatedly many awards of the international automobile industry.

A long-term partnership binds BORBET and the Volkswagen group. For this simple reason it is normal that the light alloy expert from the Sauerland region has to be present at the IZB in Wolfsburg - international component supplier fair.

Beneath several color studies BORBET also presents the novelty AeroTec. The 20 inch light alloy wheel convinces through its compact optic. The five wide spokes with level contrasts lend the wheel accents despite all reductions. Compact, diagonal shifted openings allow a gaze beyond the subjacent automobile components. This well-thought-out styling is fresh, futuristic and offers aerodynamic advantages: Flow resistance is reduced and air dispersion is optimized. This does not only lead to a smooth running of the car but for higher energy efficiency. The surface processing completes the appearance of the BORBET AeroTec. The generous surfaces are refined with the exclusive ExaPeel procedure.
BORBET also presents a serial wheel with a surface gloss polished optic. Interested fair visitors can find more in hall 2.

04.10.2016 - At the FSV Preußen it´s running smoothly with BORBET

BORBET light alloy wheels are produced for the whole automobile industry and the international after- sales-market at nine production sites with around 4,500 employees. In doing so BORBET embraces the company philosophy to support local clubs, facilities and projects at the respective locations, to create and promote social activity.


As done in the Bad Langensalza Thuringia location, where BORBET, with approx. 950 employees, is the biggest and most modern production site for light alloy wheels in Europe. BORBET has been the sponsoring partner of the local football club FSV Preußen since 2014. Borbet staff, their children and potential newcomers to the Borbet group profit enormously through this company engagement.

This year an extraordinary purchase of a new club bus was planned. This project was financed through subsidies, internal activities of the club and sponsoring; besides this BORBET also fitted the car with its CWE light alloy wheels. With these wheels the football club is optimally equipped: in the stylish colour "crystal silver" these robust wheels convince at intense stress as well as in winter use.

On the 22nd September 2016 the new club bus was officially handed over in the framework of a sponsoring breakfast- and is now driving through whole Thuringia with a BORBET logo.

BORBET wheel novelties at the Automechanika

From 13th till the 17th September BORBET is exhibiting at the Automechanika in Frankfurt a. Main. You can find the light alloy wheel expert from the Hochsauerland region in hall 3, flat 1, stand B70 at the 75 square meters big joint stand of the VDAT.

Beneath the several highlights of the actual wheel collection BORBET is also exclusively presenting the new wheel designs RB and VT.
The special at the RB light alloy wheel are the 20 spokes which range optically into 5 groups and therefore represent a modern design. Therefore the wheel appears chunky and present as well as slender and restrained. This appearance is perfectly completed through the edged alignment which gives the new wheel design RB a currish and sporty optic. The BORBET RB is exclusively available in stately 18 inches and 19 inches. Suitable to the sporty look the RB is available in the colours "sterling silver" and "black polished".

The BORBET VT connects a dynamic appearance with a classic elegant alignment. The 10 spokes lead straight from the outside margin to the wheel centre where they end slightly shifted at the wheel hub. Beneath the optic the VT wheel also emphasizes through its ECE characteristics: Mount - start - have fun!
The BORBET VT in size 7,5 x 17 inches for example is approved for the new Audi A4 and the new Mercedes E class using serial bolts. ECE applications are also available for models from car manufacturers like Volvo, Mercedes, Hyundai, Kia, Mazda and Ford. The BORBET VT is available in "mistral anthracite glossy" and "crystal silver" with offsets of 36 till 52,5mm.

The BORBET team is looking forward for numerous visitors and interesting conversations during the fair.

21.06.2016 - World record-breaking journey is all for a good cause: BORBET backs Rainer Zietlow in the Eurasia Tour 2016

The light alloy wheel manufacturer BORBET is a multi-award winning partner to the international automotive industry and one of the world's leading suppliers of premium light alloy wheels.

It has nine sites across three continents and more than 4,100 employees. The family company's high level of social commitment in Sauerland highlights how it has always remained tied to the region in all its international dealings.
As well as benefit events and supporting sport, BORBET also truly sets itself apart with its integrated youth development programme, in association with which BORBET is also attending "Study meets Practice" (German: "Studium trifft Praxis"). At this event, BORBET representatives meet students at Fachhochschule Meschede on 8 June, 2016, to initiate conversations about career opportunities in the automotive industry.

17.06.2016 - Benefit football competition with BORBET was a big success!

Finally, after a long planning phase the event could take place on the 04th June 2016 : The benefit football competition coupled with the bone marrow typing campaign of the Stefan Morsch Foundation took place at the sports field in Hesborn.


The traditional manufacturer BORBET, with its headquarters in Hesborn, did of course not miss this opportunity in sponsoring this event.
During the competition the traditional teams of Borussia Mönchengladbach, Schalke 04, Bayer Leverkusen and Borussia Dortmund competed against each other. After four pulsating matches Schalke 04 won the final match and gained the victory. But the main event of the day was of course the bone marrow typing campaign of the Stefan Morsch Foundation: During the matches 130 new donators for the stem cell donation were registered. This was also a special day for Rainer Schnell from the foundation because a lot of young donators were incorporated into the system, who are available on a long term basis for the data synchronization and therefore give many leukemia patients a chance for healing.
Also BORBET employees from the works Hesborn and Medebach took part in this great campaign and handed over a cheque of Euros 2000,00 to the Stefan Morsch Foundation.

13.06.2016 - New BORBET construction project nearing completion: Kodersdorf site awaiting start of production

With a history spanning more than 130 years, the family-owned company BORBET is one of the leading manufacturers of premium light alloy wheels and a multi-award winning partner to the international automotive industry. Around a year ago, the light alloy experts embarked on the construction of the new plant in Kodersdorf, Saxony. Following a ground-breaking ceremony in May of last year, the plant is now almost ready to start production.


The initial construction phase has already been completed and along with the building itself includes a complex infrastructure consisting of electricity, water, information technology, pressure differential and exhaust air systems, and - most importantly - the core of future production: eight advanced casting machines, two x-ray line scan cameras, a heat treatment system and three processing centres. These capacities will then be doubled in a second construction phase. This expansion is already in full swing and is expected to be completed by the end of July.

The process of obtaining permits from the relevant authorities to approve the operation of the state-of-the-art plant following extensive testing will begin in June. Just a few days later, the TÜV certification process will be carried out according to the standard ISO 16949, which will verify the high standards the system and process meet. The systems currently being installed and calibrated can then be exposed to full load. This means several thousand aluminium wheel rims "Made in Germany" per day, and over 400 new jobs in the region.

BORBET is, and has been for decades, a partner to the international automotive industry and one of the world's leading suppliers of premium light alloy wheels. The company offers all the relevant services under one roof, at nine locations across three continents - from construction, to production, to logistics and shipping.

19.05.2016 - BORBET at the REIFEN trade fair in Essen

This year, the family company BORBET has 135 years of experience in metal casting behind it. Since as long ago as 1987, their accumulated expertise has been used exclusively in the production of light alloy wheels. This development began with a true masterpiece: the BORBET A. This wheel influenced a whole generation of car lovers around the world and remains very popular today. And of course, the 30th anniversary celebrations for this wheel rim, taking place this year, represent a milestone in BORBET's company history.

The range is being expanded to coincide with the REIFEN trade fair in Essen. Visitors to the trade fair have a lot to look forward to. The light alloy experts are introducing the BORBET DY and XRS in the "Premium" category: two new wheel rims that could not be more different from one another. The DY - a 10-spoke wheel - follows a Y design and gleams with delicate ornamentation despite its substantial 20-inch size, whilst the BORBET XRS follows a completely different design path; five straight double spokes stretch powerfully from the centre of the wheel to the edge and look fantastic in exclusive "black polished glossy", in sizes up to 20 inches.

There is also a new addition to the "Sports" category. BORBET is introducing a truly special wheel rim in the form of the LS2: nine double spokes in a dynamic turbine look are presented with lavish, contrasting layers - a true turbo to look at. The new BORBET RB is another sporty wheel. It has no fewer than 20 spokes, truly setting it apart. They are visually arranged into five groups, resulting in a distinctive design. This is a wheel rim with power and presence, whilst also being delicate and refined. The RB wheel is available in one size: 8.5 x 19 inches.
Visitors to BORBET's stand at REIFEN in Essen from 24 to 27 May 2016 can look forward to learning more about this and gaining a wide range of other interesting information about light alloy wheels. BORBET extends a warm welcome to visitors in hall 3, stand 3A33.

18.05.2016 - BORBET at the Golf GTI Conference by Lake Wörthersee

Das Raddesign RB aus der Kategorie "Sports" begeisterte die Besucher vor allem durch die zahlreichen Speichen, deren Anordnung das Rad sowohl bullig und präsent, als auch feingliedrig und dezent wirken lassen. Das BORBET RB glänzt in den Farbausführungen "sterling silver" und "black polished" in 18 und 19 Zoll.
Neben den Radneuheiten gab es am BORBET Stand noch eine weitere Attraktion: Die Besucher konnten das limitierte Aktions-T-Shirt "Wörthersee" mit einem Betrag von mindestens 5,00 € erwerben und so für einen guten Zweck spenden.
Der Erlös dieser Aktion wurde von BORBET auf 1.750,00 € aufgerundet und kommt "Ärzte ohne Grenzen" zu Gute.

03.05.2016 - Girls Day 2016 at BORBET GmbH

On April 28th 2016 girl pupils from the school classes 6 - 9 were able to spend a day observing and asking questions in the training workshop of the tool-, industrial- and cutting machine- operator apprentices. Our trainees were highly motivated in helping with advice and deeds.

They explained and demonstrated important basic fundamentals of the manual and mechanical process of manufacture for example: lay out, punching, bevel grinding, drilling, shaping and rotation.
After a most experiencing and working day the girls were able to take their own workpiece and exciting impressions home.
The day proved to be a big success for Borbet as well as the girl pupils.

04.05.2016 - BORBET at the Golf GTI Conference by Lake Wörthersee

BORBET presents the new wheel design at the GTI Conference by Lake Wörthersee. The world première from the "Sports" category combines masterful elegance with the sports look.

Whether or not you're a committed GTI driver, there's one thing you have to admit: the GTI Conference by Lake Wörthersee is the best-known conference of its kind, and also has the richest history. Car lovers, tuning enthusiasts and experience seekers have been coming to the beautiful Lake Wörth for decades. The focus is entirely on cars again this year, from May 4 to May 7.

When the first GTI Conference by Lake Wörthersee took place in 1982, the family company BORBET had already been casting metal for 101 years. Just a short while later, BORBET was concentrating solely on the production of light alloy wheels, and created an absolute masterpiece: the BORBET A wheel. The wheel rim won the hearts of tuning enthusiasts, and has given many GTIs their characteristic lowered look right from the start. BORBET will also be present at the GTI Conference in 2016, fully following the motto: "With you right from the start".

A series of highlights that no tuning fan should miss out on will be presented at the BORBET stand at exhibition site 2 (stands 205 and 206). The newest BORBET design, amongst others, will be celebrating a world première here: the spectacular BORBET RB, presented among many other highlights. Visitors will also be able to enjoy plenty of gimmicks and a particularly attractive promotion: donate and get a gift! Donating at least €5 to "Doctors Without Borders" will get visitors a promotional T-shirt from BORBET as a thank you!


20.01.2016 - Kick-starting careers in the BORBET bobsleigh

To celebrate passing their final exams, BORBET invited former trainees to a Sunday afternoon gathering in Winterberg on 17 January 2016.

The event began with a relaxed lunch at Schneewittchenhaus (Snow White Inn). Head of human resources Carolin Mittermaier thanked the apprentices on behalf of BORBET for their commitment and congratulated them on their outstanding achievements and professional qualifications. She welcomed the fully trained skilled workers to the BORBET family.

After the restful part of the afternoon was over, things moved up a gear! As is tradition, the former trainees started their professional careers at BORBET with a bobsleigh ride on the Winterberg track. With a professional driver up front, the BORBET four-man bob hurtled towards the valley at a speed of over 130 kilometres per hour - a dynamic start to working life BORBET style!

As one of the region's largest employers, BORBET attaches great importance to sound vocational training. This approach ensures a lack of skilled personnel is never a problem for the family-owned company from Hallenberg-Hesborn.

Training at BORBET is exclusively demand-oriented. After two to three and a half years of training there are real future prospects for the apprentices at the company.

21.12.2015 - Special edition BORBET GTX for the new Etos concept car from Rinspeed

BORBET is all about light alloy wheels and design passion. In-house designers and developers set confident, stylish trends for the specialist sector and its classic, sport, premium and commercial wheel categories. The long-standing company from Hochsauerland, Germany, places value on using innovative manufacturing processes and modern styles.

Innovations and the designs of tomorrow are also the heartbeat of Swiss think tank Rinspeed. BORBET and the Swiss federal think tank have already collaborated on the XchangE and Budii projects. In 2016, they will once again be pooling their expertise and innovative powers for Rinspeed's Etos concept study.

Etos (ethos)- the name says it all: Rinspeed has created a vision with its hybrid sports car; a vision of what self-driving vehicles with intuitive, adaptive auto pilot and revolutionary on-board infotainment can do.

Riding on GTX special edition wheels from BORBET, the Etos has also found a reliable, cooperative, intuitive companion for the road. The "Sports" wheel cleverly enhances the agile, dynamic driving experience in collaboration with the futuristic-looking infotainment hub. The GTX fits the sporty yet at the same time avant-garde look of the Etos.

Protruding from the rim in accented, slender lines, the ten spokes on the BORBET GTX gently widen towards the hub, so presenting the wheel design in its full glory and lending the vehicle an even more dynamic look. The arch radius of the spokes forms a subtle contrast in level with the fixtures on the hub and gives the wheel's design more depth and expression. In turn, the light refracts to emphasis the complex surface finish in exclusive, special effect "black glossy".

Cautious, minimalist design language is at the heart of the BORBET GTX: Despite its considerable size at 8.5 x 20" on the front and 10 x 20" on the rear axle, the wheel still retains its graceful, sporty character and is therefore the perfect companion for Rinspeed's futuristic Etos and for vehicles in the here and now.

BORBET and Rinspeed are the perfect match: Rinspeed has already called on BORBET's unique design and product quality for the XchangE and Budii projects. Rinspeed has certainly found a suitable partner again in BORBET for the Etos. Together they stand for innovation genius and quality.

08.12.2015 - BORBET named Brand of the Century

BORBET once again proves to be one of the strongest brands in Germany. This status has been documented by the traditional company from Hochsauerland, Germany, being invited once again to join the exclusive "Brand of the Century" group.

The family-owned and family-run company BORBET was founded in 1881 and has become one of the leading manufacturers of light alloy wheels in the world today. Based on the success enjoyed by the traditional company and the social market economy values it actively implements - responsibility, sustainability and fair treatment of employees - BORBET was awarded the "Brand of the Century" quality seal back in 2014.

That year, the "Brands of the Century - Lighthouses in the Brand Sea" overview presented German companies that represent their product type and boast a unique selling point.

This year's "Brands of the Century - Stars of 2016" edition recognises family-run companies that carry economic energy and social commitment into the future as a symbol of corporate culture.

24.11.2015 - BORBET will present all its latest newcomers during the Essen Motor Show

It is already a tradition that BORBET uses the Essen Motor Show to present the coming collection with all of its highlights. There are plenty of them this year, so that the light alloy expert from the Hochsauerland area region has enlarged its exhibition area by a big way: the visitors can look forward to a magnificent 300 square meters full of wheel highlights and new surfaces and designs. These include the new BORBET designs GTX, V and Y, in addition to the global premier of the BORBET DY and the XRS. As usual, the BORBET collection covers the categories Classic, Sports, Premium and Commercial Wheels, therefore providing numerous applications to suit all tastes.

BORBET shall be presenting an exciting supporting programme with diverse activities at its stand. In addition to autograph sessions with brand ambassadors from the field of motorsports, visitors will also be presented with the "BORBET Blitzer" - a special kind of speed camera: a photo booth with a touch display, that the visitors can use to take souvenir photos. The visitors can either take their photos with them on the day or they can also be sent by email; another possibility is the immediate sharing of them on Facebook under the hashtag #BORBET_EssenMotorShow_2015. The "BORBET Blitzer" is also linked to a prize draw with numerous great instant prizes.

A cosy get-together has also been organised in order for room to be provided for the exchanging of views of such a large input: commencing at 6.00 p.m. on 27 November 2015, the BORBET trade fair team will be pleased if fans of the brand were to join it for a drink and a chat. A visit to the BORBET stand E100 & E104 in Hall 10 is therefore certainly worth it.

18.11.2015 - BORBET Thüringen is presented the "Outstanding Company for Apprenticeships" award by the Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK)

BORBET Thüringen GmbH is one of the largest employers in the district of Unstrut-Hainich, Germany. In its position, the company actively assumes responsibility for the region's future and the people who live there. The manufacturer of light alloy wheels attaches great importance to training and furthering the education of young employees.

In recognition of the company's commitment to providing training for the workforce of tomorrow, the IHK in Erfurt presented BORBET Thüringen GmbH with the "Outstanding Company for Apprenticeships" award. At the "Gala der Besten" evening event on 17 November 2015, Gerald Grusser, IHK Erfurt Managing Director, and Ina Benad, Chairwoman of the Board of the Employment Agency in Gotha, presented the award to the German automotive supplier based in the state of Thuringia.

Dr Ing. Claus-Michael Honsel accepted the award on behalf of the company, the supervisors and apprentices: "As a family-run company, we consider mutual support and cooperation to be of great importance. Our focus on values and the requirements of the individual shapes the principles and conditions of the apprenticeships we offer, and so provide our apprentices with real prospects for the future. Our aim is to encourage young people to stay in the region by offering them attractive prospects at our company, and so strengthen the economic position of the Unstrut-Hainich district, Erfurt and Gotha in the state of Thuringia."

The "Outstanding Company for Apprenticeships" award honours companies whose activities in the vocational training market go beyond the average level of commitment. The award selection criteria focus on the continuity of the training, opportunities for employment at the company once training is completed, the supervisors' qualifications/further education, participation in career guidance projects and the supervision offered to apprentices. BORBET Thüringen GmbH was able to convince the jury on all of these points.

22.10.2015 - BORBET Employees issued with CCI Further Training Certificate

As one of the largest employers in the region, BORBET GmbH actively assumes responsibility for its employees and their future prospects. Customized, trendsetting and sustainable further training and training concepts are decisive both for staff satisfaction and the company success.

In cooperation with the IHK-Bildungsinstitut, the training institute from the Chamber of Commerce and Industry, BORBET devised a customised further training course that aims at optimizing the maintenance and repair work in everyday production. With the Industrial Specialist for Control Engineering training course, BORBET is reacting to the increasing demands that are being placed by the ever-modern machinery and the related growth in the level of automation.

The aim was to bring the electrical engineering and the mechanical divisions closer together, sensitise the specialists from each of the divisions for the processes of the other one, and especially to provide the employees with control engineering and pneumatics training.

The pilot project was designed corporate-wide. For example, seven employees from the BORBET plants in Hallenberg-Hesborn and Medebach participated together with two from other companies. The further training course comprised more than 200 lessons. BORBET also opened its doors to the participants from the other companies for the practical part and the final examination.

All of the participants successfully completed the further training course, despite the difficulties that a fully rotating shift system can cause. The certificates were issued on the BORBET premises on 21 October 2015. Franz-Josef Hinkelmann, the Managing Director of the IHK Bildungsinstituts Hellweg-Sauerland GmbH, Marion Brieden, head of the Human Resources Department at BORBET GmbH, and Friedhelm Brieden, Works Committee Chairman at BORBET GmbH, congratulated on the successful qualification as an Industrial Specialist for Control Engineering.

After the further training course has got off to a successful start, it can be determined that not only did it result in the gaining of additional knowledge, but also a professional and personal coming together of the team. These results shall be forming the basis for pushing ahead with additional qualification projects at BORBET, in order to qualify employees in times of demographic change, thereby retaining them both in the company and in the region.

16.10.2015 - BORBET Sachsen celebrates roofing ceremony

On October 15th 2015, just 5 months after the official ground breaking ceremony of the new BORBET plant in Kodersdorf, Borbet Sachsen GmbH was able to celebrate the traditional roofing ceremony.

After completion of the main building shell and the fitting of the roof frame work the ceremonial dedication was celebrated at the building site with all involved working parties. Managing director Reiner Dürkop welcomed all involved constructors and their employees at the workshop in the industrial estate of Kodersdorf, near Görlitz for the ceremonial dedication.
During the traditional mounting of the "building tree" Mr. Dürkop thanked all attendees for their engagement and the good collaboration. Thanks to these excellent performances the construction succeeds without delays and can be closed on schedule in week 44.

After repositioning 30,000 cubic meters of topsoil and the excavation of about 70,000 cubic meters of earth, a production hall with enormous dimensions had been established in Kodersdorf. The new BORBET production plant has a roof area of 22,100 square meters as well as a wall area of 8,500 square meters. Total 2,250 cubic meters cement had been spread for the foundation. 945 segments of reinforced concrete, every single one with a weight of about 58 tons, had been obstructed since July. Now everything is ready for the third and final building phase: End of October the plant engineering will start. The production plant itself is planned to be completed end of December. All in all nothing should delay a punctual production start in spring 2016.

13.05.2015 - Cut of the spade: BORBET GmbH constructs a new alloy wheels plant in Kodersdorf

The symbolical start of the construction of the new BORBET Sachsen GmbH plant in Kodersdorf today. The symbolic cut of the spade was today completed in the presence of the Minister-President Stanislaw Tillich, the District Administrator Bernd Lange, the Mayor René Schöne and other representatives of the politics and business world. This paved the way for the creation of 400-500 jobs in the region.

Kodersdorf, 13 May 2015: The time had now come at the end of the planning and preparatory phases: the BORBET GROUP is erecting its new plant, BORBET Sachsen GmbH in the Industriestraße 1 with a capacity of 2 million wheels per year. This means that BORBET GmbH with legal domicile in the Hochsauerland area, now has more than 9 sites in Germany and abroad. In addition to having a plant in each of the countries Austria, South Africa and the USA, BORBET now has five additional sites in Germany. From the employees that total 4,100 around the world, more than half of them are employed in Germany. A rapid increase to this number is to be expected as the company currently plans creating an additional 400-500 jobs at its new Kodersdorf site. This development is due to the increasing demand that the customers have for alloy wheels.

The symbolic commencement of the construction work took place during a small celebration that was held on site. The guests and project participants were welcomed by Peter-Wilhelm Borbet on this morning. it is anticipated that the construction work on the hall shall be completed in November and it is hoped that the production of alloy wheels can commence in early 2016.

11.05.2015 - BORBET shines with a broad selection of wheels at the 34th VW Rally at Wörthersee

The BORBET stand motto at this year's VW rally at Wörthersee says it all: "There from the start." You see, this traditional manufacturer from the Hochsauerland region of Germany has been providing fans with a sporty ride and high-quality vehicle upgrades since the legendary BORBET A back in 1987. As such, it's no surprise that BORBET will arrive at the 34th VW rally in Wörthersee with a wide array of products and many spectacular highlights in tow. Fans of the Wolfsburg-based car brand have something to look forward to, as this selection of premium rims leaves no wish unfulfilled.

The BORBET family company has been in the metalworking business since 1881. This know-how has flowed exclusively into the production of lightweight alloy wheels since 1987. Combined with the most innovative, state of the art production methods and unparalleled quality assurance, these high standards have ensured the absolute highest quality wheels since the beginning - durable, uncompromisingly robust, and optimised for an unadulterated ride. The legendary BORBET A was the pride of many Golf I drivers from the beginning and rightly serves as an absolute icon amongst German tuning wheels. This success story and commitment to tradition are reflected in the BORBET stand motto at this year's VW rally at Wörthersee: "There from the start."

Fans of the Wolfsburg-based car maker have something to look forward to, as BORBET shows once again that there's no holding back when it comes to design. In tow will be an array of lightweight alloy wheels featuring a variety of fresh and spectacular designs that will have the pulse of tuning fans racing.

It's a wheel in the Sports category that is distinguished by its classic-sporty design and is available in spectacular colour variations, allowing for stylish, dynamic vehicle individualisation. The BORBET S also knows how to impress. This Premium category wheel is available in sizes up to an ample 22 inches and features particular versatility. In addition to colours like powerful Black Red Matte, classic Brilliant Silver, subdued Graphite Polished Matte, and extravagant Silver Black Glossy, BORBET also offers a selection of surfaces for this wheel that leaves no wish unfulfilled.

Besides the spectacular wheel programme, there's also a very special, Wörthersee-exclusive wheel surprise in store to look forward to along with T-shirts with a dedicated motif and many souvenirs. It's definitely worth a visit to BORBET at the VW rally at Wörthersee. The BORBET presentation area can be found on the Seenstraße in Reifnitz at Messeplatz 2, Stand 205/206.

20.11.2014 - BORBET focuses on sustainability

The traditional manufacturer of alloy wheels from the Sauerland region stands for diligent corporate management and a dedicated sense of responsibility to the regions in which the company has its locations and the people who live there. The family company remains true to its principles in terms of safety standards and product quality, and continues to bank on innovative and cutting edge manufacturing processes to ensure that each new product generation is even better for even longer. In terms of sustainability, BORBET plays an active trailblazing role, and also participates as a partner in the research project "Focus on Sustainability" at the University of Applied Sciences (FHDW) Paderborn and the Bertelsmann Foundation.

The initiative "Focus on Sustainability" aims to develop a procedure for the establishment of sustainability in businesses. The object is to demonstrate through the cooperation of individual parties from different sectors realistic approaches with which medium-sized businesses can operate sustainably. At the same time, it is meant to promote an all-encompassing awareness of sustainability, and especially in the case of smaller businesses and companies, which have had no contact with the subject as of yet, to be shown the first steps for creating a sustainable corporate management. For all practical purposes, sustainability is of fundamental importance to the environment / ecology, employees, and society / region. In a larger sense, the assurance of a sustainable economy also plays an important role in responsible and diligent corporate management. In the project itself, these four mainstays are identified as the basis and as fixed points and serve as orientation measures. Thus, sustainability can be addressed from different aspects. A medium-sized company, such as BORBET does not define itself solely on the basis of the production of high-quality and sophisticated design products. It also includes all the trappings: BORBET is consistently future-oriented - in all four aspects of sustainability: environment / ecology, employees, society / region and economy.

The sustainability requirement with regard to the environment / ecology applies in particular when dealing with materials and resources. In the production of Borbet alloy wheels, the following maxim applies: As much material as needed to ensure uncompromised safety, but as little as possible to maximize the dynamics of the wheel. The minimization of the amount of material used through innovative and pioneering manufacturing processes, such as NatureWheel and FlowForming, had a double positive effect on the environment and resources: by significantly lowering the weight of the vehicle, the fuel consumption was also reduced considerably. On top of that is an environmentally-friendly mode of production in which all of the generated waste, i.e. light metal shavings, are recycled 100 percent by being returned to the production process - nothing is wasted, all of the material flows into the products.

Approximately 4,000 employees around the world are committed daily to the company's activities. At all of its sites, therefore, BORBET assumes active responsibility for people and the region. The company attaches great importance to sound knowledge and training, thus acting proactively against an impending shortage of skilled workers. Looking ahead, BORBET trains exclusively according to needs and creates sustainable job prospects with real perspectives. The BORBET employees deliver a top performance every day - they guarantee the success of the company. In order to optimize their work-life balance and to relieve them from their daily workloads, various measures have been planned for the staff in the near future. The health and well-being of the entire BORBET team has priority.

"Together for the region" - is motto behind BORBET's social commitment, ranging from regional sports sponsorships to active involvement in the development of the company locations. It is self-evident to BORBET to support teams and amateur and professional athletes from the individual regions, as well as promoting ambitious talents of today and tomorrow. For many years, for example, BORBET has been one of the sponsoring partners of the bobsled track in Winterberg. In addition to sports promotion, the family company continues to support social projects at the company locations. Just this summer, a construction and renovation project in the community of Medebach could be completed with the help of BORBET. The "BORBET Sports Box" - once a dilapidated collection of small playing fields, now a modern sports facility - can be used by anyone, anytime, making it a true enhancement of the cityscape. Numerous clubs, from fire-fighters to youth sports groups, benefit from BORBET's support. This way a large part of the cultural portrait of each region is preserved.

As one of ten instigators and project partners, BORBET supports the initiative to develop the theme "Sustainability in business" with positive examples and input from corporate management. In addition to the five major initiators, institutions from the science, social and media sectors are also participating in the scheduled three-year project. Moreover, more than 200 companies in North Rhine-Westphalia and Lower Saxony have joined - a positive figure and confirmation of the long-term planned projects at the federal level. The research project "Focus on Sustainability" will illustrate for every participant the strengths and progress associated with sustainability and responsible entrepreneurship - always with the aim of learning from one other, developing future-oriented companies, and securing Germany as a business location.
