Exceptional quality sets us apart

At Kautex, we consider ourselved to be "hidden champions" in terms of our impact to the end customer. Whether you see a car as a intricately, fine-tuned machine, a "home away from home" with all the necessary technology to keep you connected to your friends, family and work, or simply a mode of transport from Point A to Point B, we help get you where you want to go.

However, we don't want you thinking about your fuel tank  (unless of course, its time to fill up!), SCR system, camera cleaning system or camshafts because more likely than not, that means you have experienced a problem. 

We also know when an OEM places an order with us, they place their brand reputation in our hands. The end customer won't go to Kautex for resolution on a issue - they will go to their local dealership or OEM for assistance. And in the end, that reflects poorly on us.

Therefore, Kautex places a heavy focus on the design and production quallity of our products. We pratice tried-and-true lean manufaucturing principles and drive a continuous improvement mindset, in our product, tooling and manfuacutirng processes.
