- Products & Services
Today XANDOR Automotive has manufacturing plants in Germany, Czech Republic and the UK. We also have Design and Development facilities in Baden-Baden, Germany and Royal Leamington Spa in the UK. Here we give an overview of each of our locations, recognising our diverse heritage and summarising their current activities.
Our headquarters are in Baden-Baden, Germany. This site was founded in 1959 with Julius Berger, the first Plant Manager starting the construction on a site of nearly 35 000 square meters. Over subsequent years, the site saw significant expansion and growth resulting in a high tech highly automated plant.
During this period two key business areas were created; Development Centre and Automotive Fluid Connectors. Today, the XANDOR Automotive Fluid Connectors Division supplies marketing leading fluid conveyance systems to OEMs in the European automotive industry. These hose lines and pipe systems are for Mobile Air Conditioning Systems, steering support, oil cooling, active suspension, heat exchange and automatic level control.
Created as a Joint Venture with Changzhou Senstar Automobile Air Conditioner Co. Ltd, our 8,000 sq meter Chinese manufacturing plant is based in Shanghai. Focusing upon the Connectors side of our business, the plant produces a range of tubing products for OEM customers including VW Audi Group, Volvo and Great Wall.
XANDOR Automotive also have an office in Wuxi, supporting the procurement of complex tooling and secondary operations equipment. Situated on the 39th floor of the Guojin Centre, the tallest building in Wuxi. We have a modern fully serviced office area including a meeting/video conferencing facility to maintain our contact with both sister companies and suppliers. The office is an ideal base being in the centre, 20 minutes from the intercity high speed railway station and only 30 minutes from the airport.
The XANDOR Automotive Czech Republic site was built in 2003 close to Chomutov. The modern building of 11,000 sq. meters was finished in May 2004. Production initially focused on power steering lines and subsequently Fluid Conveyance products, mainly for Automotive Air Conditioning applications. Today the factory uses a variety of processes including aluminium TIG and Laser Beam Welding, Induction Brazing, Tube cutting and 3D printing.
XANDOR Automotive has 5 sites in the UK mainly focusing on Plastics Design and Manufacturing, but in addition at our Brierley Hill facility we also feature Connectors manufacturing capabilities.
Our Design and Development centre is in Leamington Spa, is close to both our key customers and our Brierley Hill manufacturing site in the West Midlands, the heart of the UK automotive industry. This site specialises in two types of core product; Plastics and Fluid Connectors. In addition to customers in the mainstream automotive sector, Brierley Hill also manufactures complex products for the industrial and commercial sector.

These facilities focus on the manufacture and assembly of complex Plastic components and assemblies for large automotive OEM's using hi-tech moulding and painting processes.
