Founded way back in 1873, Bilstein started life as a foundry and galvanizing factory for residential window hardware. Named after founder, August Bilstein, the company was initially called AUBI. Soon after, August’s son, Hans Bilstein, took the company’s reigns and steered them to their ultimate destiny—automotive shock absorbers.
The first to perfect the monotube gas pressure shock absorber, Bilstein revolutionized the shock absorber industry in 1954. And by 1958, after working closely with Daimler-Benz, Bilstein became standard equipment on every Mercedes-Benz. The next logical step for Bilstein was the racetrack, which is what the company is ultimately most famous for today.
From the Baja deserts to racetracks around the world, Bilstein continues to dominate the competition. In their unyielding quest for the checkered flag, winning racers choose Bilstein for their unmatched durability and cutting-edge technology. And by taking what they learn on the track to the streets, Bilstein brings out the best in your vehicle.
