Established in 1881, German-based Borbet is a major supplier of wheels to many of Europe's most prestigious marques.
Borbet has earned its place among the finest alloy wheel manufacturers in the world today. Out of the liquid flame of melted alloy, Borbet creates an aluminum alloy wheel of the highest quality. Before the wheel is finished it will have undergone the most extreme tests in quality assurance, guaranteeing a high quality wheel for your vehicle.
It started in 1962 when Peter Wilhelm Borbet, today's president, began production in a newly built facility in Hesborn, Germany, manufacturing sand-cast, gravity die-cast and also low-pressure die cast parts for many different industries. Then in 1977, Borbet began making light alloy wheels for cars and commercial vehicles. Today the company is specializing more and more in the development and manufacture of wheels - from design to production. Their die-casting machines run 24 hours a day while robots perform the final machining of the alloy wheels. All Borbet facilities use helium to test its wheels for imperfections instead of a more traditional water bath.
Its Hesborn plant's innovative technologies and environmentally friendly production, as well as those of their sister companies across Europe, South Africa and the United States result in a total capacity to produce millions of wheels each year.
With a comprehensive quality assurance system and a staff of able and dedicated employees, Borbet has established a significant market position and was one of the first light alloy wheel manufacturers to be successfully certified according to the DIN ISO 9001 standard for its quality management system. Since that first certification, Borbet has earned ISO 14001 certification for its environmental management system as well as both ISO/TS 16949 and ISO 9001 certification for quality management.
In addition to producing aftermarket wheels, the company is also an Original Equipment supplier to the auto industry. Its clients include BMW, Volkswagen, Audi, Ford and more.
Borbet is also actively involved in motorsports, supporting the FIA WTCC (World Touring Car Championship) SEAT team.
