Kiefel Automotive know-how acquired by Persico

Persico Automotive in Freilassing: German expertise, Italian inspiration

Technology - Wednesday, 12 February 2020

The technological know-how in the manufacture of automotive trim parts of Kiefel Automotive has been acquired by Persico. This transaction has enabled Persico to found the new German subsidiary Persico Automotive, which has extensive expertise in vacuum laminating. The new company is based in Freilassing.


Persico has acquired Kiefel’s advanced technology, namely patents, know-how, highly trained employees including engineers, as well as set-up and testing machinery, which will also be placed in Persico’s American plants. At the Freilassing facility, Persico will continue to produce and test the same plastics processing machinery previously built under Kiefel ownership.


“Persico Automotive is envisioned as a centre of excellence, where Italian inspiration and design team up with German production methods and times,” Pierino Persico, president of Persico, said: “We place great importance on the present local staff and are counting on their competence to carry on the business and achieve success in Germany.”
