Our Success Story
STS was founded in 2013 with the goal to reach steady growth and value-add-acquisitions. Since then STS has established a leading position in the market as the preferred global supplier of composite parts when it comes to design, comfort and efficiency. And STS keeps on growing.
What makes STS so special - Unique selling points of STS Group
We offer the customer complete system solutions through the combination of technologies such as thermal isolation components, injection moulding technology and composite component production.
High vertical integration
We own and control multiple stages of the production process, from the semi-finished material to the finished product. This allows us to keep specific product know-how in house, control the process, reduce costs, and improve efficiencies during processes such as composite thermocompression and injection moulding.
STS Group focuses on medium batch sizes, producing up to 100,000 parts per year, an attractive feature for SMC compression. STS is competitive in medium series sizes which is likely to be the future trend of electric vehicles.
STS Group has operations in 3 continents, including 8 production plants and 4 logistic/service plants across the globe and 3 R&D centres in Europe and China. This means we offer local, tailor-made solutions based on our global know-how. Our global footprint also saves costs, protects the environment and significantly optimises interaction and support for our customers.
Our success story does not stop there. We also have ambitious plans for the future:
