Since arriving in North America in 1976, the DRÄXLMAIER Group has expanded its regional presence. After transferring its production from Canada to the United States in 1985, the company eventually relocated to Duncan, S.C., in 1996. Today, the suppliers has two manufacturing sites for vehicle interiors – one in South Carolina and one in California – as well as an engineering/sales office in Silicon Valley and logistics hubs in Tennessee and Alabama.
As a specialist in innovative wiring harness systems, battery systems, modern electrical and electronic components, and exclusive interiors, DRÄXLMAIER supports premium automobile manufacturers such as Audi, BMW, Jaguar, Land Rover, Maserati, Mercedes-Benz, MINI, Porsche, Rolls-Royce and Volkswagen through the entire production process – from the very first idea all the way up to in-sequence delivery.
The DRÄXLMAIER Group has been present in the USA since 1985. By being close to its customers, the company has continuously enlarged its product portfolio and services.
At its site in Duncan, S.C., the DRÄXLMAIER Group manufactures interior systems for premium vehicles. It is also the home of the company's U.S. headquarters.
In 2017, the DRÄXLMAIER Group opened its second U.S. production site in Livermore. In addition to manufacturing premium interior parts, the location also houses a sequencing warehouse to deliver its products just-in-time and just-in-sequence to the assembly lines of its customers.
In order to better serve its Next Mobility customers in Silicon Valley, the DRÄXLMAIER Group set up an engineering and sales office in Mountain View in 2016.
The DRÄXLMAIER Group originally opened a field office in Chattanooga in 2011. One year later, a logistics hub was set up inside a supplier park to sequence electrical systems and wiring harnesses to a local automobile manufacturer.
