Page Overview: Plastics Exterior


Due to the great flexibility plastic offers compared to conventional materials such as steel and aluminum, our designers have a wide range of possibilities when working with the material. It weighs about 50 percent less than steel, is resistant to minor damage and doesn’t corrode.

Based on decades of experience, our specialists have attained maximum expertise in producing and coating large plastic components. About 800,000 painted exterior components made of plastic in 45 series colors and 200 individual colors leave our production site for the BMW Group’s vehicle plants every year. The production and coating of the entire plastic outer shell of the BMW i8 in particular requires outstanding craftsmanship.

In the industry, Landshut’s bumper production is considered number one in terms of quality and profitability.
