Page Overview: Carbon


Carbon is unrivalled by conventional materials. The composite material offers numerous positive properties in a unique combination: it is very light, extremely rigid and corrosion resistant. 

The foundation of the Landshut Innovation and Technology Center (LITZ) in 1999 marked the beginning of CFRP production in the automotive industry. Thanks to the vigorous development of materials and processes over the past 15 years – primarily the production of the CFRP roofs for the BMW M models – our specialists have gained unparalleled expertise when it comes to CFRP-specific processes in large series production. The site does not only make carbon body parts for BMW i models, but also for the flagship of the BMW brand: the new BMW 7 Series.
