The network of competence: The BPW Group

In the world of transport and logistics, everything is connected to everything. The BPW Group is a global network of leading specialists in research and development, industrial production and sales - for all tasks that affect vehicle manufacturers and operators: Today, tomorrow and in the future.

Everything that moves, digitally connects, secures and illuminates the trailer comes from the BPW Group brands: BPW, Ermax, HBN-Teknik, Hestal and idem telematics.


BPW produces the key components for road transport worldwide: in Germany as well as in Denmark, Hungary, Russia, South Africa, China and Australia. As a metal-processing company in a group, we combine state-of-the-art grey and nodular cast iron and plastic technologies with digitally networked production, assembly and quality assurance processes of industry 4.0. Certification to IATF 16949 qualifies BPW for the highest requirements of the automotive, commercial vehicle and agricultural industries.



The BPW innovation centres for electric mobility, mechatronics and the Internet of Transport open up the future of transport and logistics. They form a platform for interdisciplinary research and development teams throughout the BPW Group, but also for networking with universities, research institutions and innovative companies. And the BPW subsidiary idem telematics, one of the strongest performing providers for truck and trailer telematics, is also actively driving forward the networking of vehicle, driver and freight with the digital processes and applications in logistics 4.0.


We think transport - and we act local: BPW subsidiaries in over 27 countries worldwide are excellently networked and familiar with the product and service requirements of the local transport industry - from the Silk Road to the Kalahari. To ensure optimum mobility of trucks and trailers even in the remotest regions, we rely on an extensive worldwide service network and operate one of the leading aftermarket organizations in Europe.
