With our expertise in sustainably produced car interior surfaces, Stahl supports original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) with a range of automotive services. We work together to design the materials for tomorrow’s mobility needs.

Automotive interior surfaces

Stahl provides advanced surface solutions for all parts of the car interior: the steering wheel, car seats, instrument panel, glove compartment lid, door trims, armrests, headrest, sun shield, glass run channels, and center console. Collaborating closely with prominent manufacturers and brands, we work hard to continue developing and improving our solutions. Together, we strive for a cleaner and more sustainable future, with appealing, long-lasting materials for automotive interior surfaces.


Our OEM Center of Excellence

At Stahl, our focus is on what’s ahead and on meeting tomorrow’s mobility needs. By listening closely and discussing this evolving landscape, we are able to offer our original equipment manufacturer (OEM) customers a range of automotive services and solutions tailored to meet their changing requirements. In our CoE we are able to simulate the supply chain and testing with prototyping machines and full test equipment of today’s automotive specification test methods. Together with our partners we are able to prototype new ideas and solutions together with our partners.

Stahl Advanced: your partner for advanced development projects

We understand that cooperation is key to innovation and progress in areas such as sustainability. At Stahl, we work hard to be a trusted resource for OEMs, Tier 1 suppliers, and customers, for all their advanced development needs.

Stahl Concept: shaping the future of mobility together

We see the shift toward electric vehicles and shared mobility, as well as increased connectivity and autonomy. These trends will shape the future of mobility. We envision the car as a third living space where people can work, meet, relax, sleep, connect, and have fun. In this future, the car interior will be the heart of the car and an important element in OEM brand differentiation.

With our product development and rapid prototyping capabilities, we help our OEM partners and customers realize their vision and bring future-forward concept cars to life. We are proud to have played a role in innovative vehicle concepts such as Rinspeed's Snap and microSNAP.


Whitepaper: Senses working overtime

When it comes to our mobility choices, we often talk rationally – for example, claiming to choose car A over car B because of its safety – but scratch the surface and you quickly find that we are really driven by our sense of sight, smell, touch, and sound. Our senses are set to become even more important in defining our user experience and preferences. Interested in how this works? Read on to join us in exploring the car interior through the senses and seeing where they add value. Think durability, hygiene and stay-clean surfaces, sustainable and lightweight materials, smart surfaces, noise reduction, and air quality. It’s going to be a great ride!
