The BOGE Rubber & Plastics Group is a top player among the worldwide automotive suppliers of rubber-metal and plastics technology. With approximately 4,200 employees, it generates an annual turnover of approximately EUR 829 million.
The company, headquartered in Damme, Germany, is represented internationally with ten locations in Europe, Asia, North and South America.
BOGE Rubber & Plastics looks back at over 80 years of automotive competence and the strategic alliance with TMT in 2014 constituted another milestone on the way to the future. TMT is part of CRRC, the world’s largest manufacturer of railroad vehicles.
For us, the perfect solution is not only a promise, but rather the result of careful, precise and dedicated work. From our experience we know how important it is to provide a full range of products and services from the tailor-made production to the individual technical support by our experts.
BOGE Rubber & Plastics offers all-in-one solutions for the automotive industry. Our vibration control and noise attenuation products increase the driving dynamics of the vehicle thereby enhancing safety and comfort. Our expertise in plastics has made us experts in lightweight construction solutions.
The networking of expertise across our product lines ensures that we are constantly finding new solutions to combine materials to reduce weight, costs and emissions.
BOGE Rubber & Plastics is the world’s largest manufacturer of hydraulic damping chassis suspension mounts. Our high-quality and long-life chassis mounts reduce vibration that can occur during cornering, braking maneuvers or on rough roads. These components have to meet rigorous vibration damping and noise insulation standards for each type of vehicle and play a key role in improving ride safety and stability as well as vehicle dynamics and comfort.
Our engine and transmission mounts prevent noise and vibration from entering the passenger compartment via the drivetrain, thus improving acoustic performance and comfort. Switchable or active engine mounts assist in fuel savings especially with a downsized engine, cylinder cutoff or start-stop function. Due to the increasing use of lightweight materials, vehicle weight and in turn fuel consumption are reduced. We also provide Fiber-reinforced flexible coupling for a wide range of applications.
With more than 45 years of experience in plastics technology, we are experts in lightweight constructions. Our best-in-class thermoplastic precision components and modules clearly demonstrate that conventional materials can be substituted by alternatives. The advantages are: reduced cost, lower weight and maximum reliability. We also apply our expertise to the development of lightweight solutions such as components for engine compartments. This is how we contribute to vehicle- and road safety.

Electric mobility: BOGE chassis parts for NEVS
For the automotive supplier BOGE Rubber & Plastics, innovation also means dealing intensively with the subject of electric mobility. NEVS, a Chinese manufacturer of electric vehicles, has now placed an order with BOGE for chassis suspension components in China. The front and rear top mount, control arm bushing, trailing arm bushing, and toe link bush come from BOGE: The parts were developed and will be produced at BOGE's Qingpu location. BOGE Elastmetall Shanghai Co. Ltd. has been located in Qingpu for over ten years with sales, development, prototype production, simulation, materials engineering and production. The product portfolio includes rubber-metal components (noise and vibration damping) for chassis and powertrain as well as plastic components and modules for the global automotive industry.
BOGE Rubber & Plastics enhances service in China
With its new Customer Service Center Asia (CSC Asia) in Zhuzhou/China, the BOGE Rubber & Plastics Group is consistently continuing its globalization strategy. The CSC Asia is an essential cornerstone for meeting the requirements of local customers even better, further increasing service quality for customers and continuing to grow in Asia. With over 1,200 employees, the automotive supplier generates sales of over 200 million euros in China.

Brake pedal 40-55 percent lighter than steel
Innovative lightweight technology enables volume production, is affordable and hybrid. That’s why the automotive supplier BOGE Rubber & Plastics Group has developed an additive manufacturing process for endless fiber materials. It is applied to brake pedals, a safety critical component – 40-55 percent lighter than steel, fully automated and quality controlled.
Core of the process is the local adaption of fiber architectures by printing unidirectional reinforcements (UD-Tapes) to organo-sheets. In a second step these tailored blanks are then draped and consolidated in a way, that fully welds the tapes to the organo-sheets. This makes mechanical properties of endless fiber-shells programmable. Increased fiber efficiency reduces the amount of equipped endless fiber materials by 30 percent, reducing wall thickness and thus weight and cycle time.
