Company Profile




Karl-Schmidt-Strasse, 74172 Neckarsulm, Germany

Business Overview

-The Company is an integrated technology group with a focus on the security technology and mobility markets. For the mobility industry, the Company focuses on the reduction of emissions, pollutants and fuel consumption, reduction of weight and friction, and thermal management systems across passenger and commercial vehicles. The Company is also working on developing E-Mobility and hydrogen drive system products.

-In February 2021, the Company restructured its organization, shifting towards becoming an integrated technology group. As such, the Company discontinued its Defence and Automotive sectors and eliminated the interim holding of Rheinmetall Automotive AG. The Company’s new structure comprised of five divisions as follows: Weapon and Ammunition, Electronic Solutions, Vehicle Systems, Sensors and Actuators, and Materials and Trade. In regards to the automotive market, the Sensors and Actuators division includes the product areas of the former Mechatronics division, while the Material and Trade division will consist of the Bearings, Aftermarket and Castings product areas. In addition, on May 2021, the Pistons business unit was classified as a discontinued operation, as the Company aimed to divest the business unit.
