History of helsa-automotive
Young companies are chock full of ideas, motivation and perspectives. That´s why we are very proud of the special milestones in our company history.

In 1991 helsacomp supplied the first odour filter in series for the S-class of Mercedes Benz. At that time this development was a world innovation in the automobile sector.

With continual further development and a new series of products, helsacomp has evolved into one of the leading manufacturers of cabin air filter systems. Since 1991 over 40 million filter systems have been manufactured in our production facilities in Germany, the Czech Republic and North America.

Since 1995 we have extended our product line with an additional successful product. With helsasorb we have an effective passive sorption system for the automobile interior.

Since 1st July 2001, the automobile activities of the Helsa-Werke have been outsourced into a self-contained limited company in order to adjust even more quickly to market requirements.

At present, our client list includes all well-known automobile and system manufacturers, for example: VW, DaimlerChrysler, Audi, Opel, Ford, Fiat, Renault, Saab, MAN, Behr, Valeo, Denso and Delphi. For the international aftermarket we offer our business partners a wide product range of cabin air filters in OE-quality as well as an extensive service.
