HELLA has been driving technological developments in the automotive industry for over 100 years in the field of innovative lighting technology and electronics. As an outcome of its expertise and high levels of capital expenditure in developing its innovative strength, HELLA has established itself as one of the technological leaders in lighting technology as well as in many areas of electronics. Our products provide customers with significant added value when it comes to higher safety, lower energy consumption, better functionality, design and added comfort in applications. We cater to three central market trends of the automotive industry: autonomous driving, efficiency and electrification, connectivity & digitalization and individualization. Based on technological differentiation and innovation, we seek to achieve leading market positions in the relevant business fields and establish HELLA as a core supplier for top automobile manufacturers.
In addition to this, vehicle parts and accessories are sold via one of Europe’s largest distribution networks for the aftermarket. The Special Applications business division rounds off the portfolio with products for specialist vehicles. The HELLA Group is one of the top 40 automotive suppliers worldwide thanks to its global footprint and network and sales of EUR 6.4 billion in fiscal year 2015/2016. Almost 36,000 people, including over 6,000 research and development experts work for the listed family-run company.
The HELLA Group’s business activities are divided into three segments: Automotive, Aftermarket and Special Applications. These differ in terms of the respective customer groups as well as their specific market cycles. The Automotive segment includes the business divisions Lighting and Electronics with a customer base that covers almost all leading vehicle manufacturers and automotive suppliers. Our range of services in the Electronics division includes special sensors and actuators, body electronics, and innovative technologies for driver assistance, energy management systems and power steering. In total, we have over 60 product groups in 21 product lines in Electronics, which are pooled in five strategic product segments and help to make vehicles safer, more efficient and more comfortable. For example, our radar sensors ensure a higher level of safety in traffic, as they monitor the rear of the vehicle and assist the driver when changing lane or carrying out a reverse bay parking maneuver. Our Intelligent Battery Sensor is key for efficient energy management in the vehicle, as it monitors the status of the battery and ensures that the car is ready to start at any time. Together with our network partners, we are one of the global market leaders with more than 10 million battery sensors sold annually.
When it comes to lighting products, HELLA develops and produces headlamps, rear lamps, signal lamps and interior lights plus lighting electronics components for nearly all reputable automobile manufacturers throughout the world. HELLA has launched many innovative lighting solutions from the time it was established, starting with the first Acelyte headlamps in 1908. In 2016, HELLA presented a world’s first – the MULTIBEAM LED headlamp, which was developed in collaboration with Daimler. The headlamp features 84 LEDs arranged in three rows, each of which can be controlled individually facilitating an extremely precise, highly-adjustable light distribution in the entire high beam range. This is the first light that emits a low beam which is not reliant on mechanical actuators. The purely electronic dynamic bend lighting is also the first of its kind in the world.
HELLA combines additional business activities in the Aftermarket segment, acting as a retailer for passenger car parts and is an important service partner for independent garages. The company operates as a wholesaler in Northern and Eastern Europe. The Special Applications business segment develops, manufactures and sells lighting and electronic products for special vehicles such as buses, caravans, agricultural and construction machinery.
