The beginnings of the first Tailored Blank

The Tailored Blank has its origin deep in the heart of the Rhine-Ruhr area. Here, we have been developing and manufacturing laser-welded lightweight solutions for bodywork and vehicle construction for over 30 years – tailor-made from component development, through the production of prototypes, right up to the production of series components.

240 employees work day in, day out to meet the requirements of the automotive industry with reliable and quality products. The foundation for this is our continuous development of ideas and innovations. Our research and development department at the Duisburg-Hüttenheim location is our inspiration for new products and technologies – so that today, we’re already finding solutions to the challenges that our customers expect tomorrow.
