Company Description
BCS Automotive Interface Solutions combines the experience of a long-standing automotive supplier with a history of more than 70 years and 3,600 employees globally with the excitement of a newly established business based on the recent move to become a standalone company.

How we became who we are.

The history of BCS Automotive Interface Solutions goes back until 1949 when Werner Messmer founded Messmer Radolfzell, today’s facility in Radolfzell, Germany. In the 1970s, the US American automotive supplier TRW acquired first Werner Messmer and shortly after that SIPEA in Italy.

Lucas Industries, a British manufacturer of automotive and aerospace components acquired Kelsey-Hayes in the US in 1994. That entire business was assumed by TRW in 1999.

Until 2012, BCS Automotive Interface Solutions consisted of two regional business units, Body Control Systems North America and Body Control Systems Europe & Emerging Markets. In that year it became a global business.

With that, starting to focus on company culture, our vision ‘Be the global leader in automotive interface solutions’ was established and will continue to be our long-term goal.

In 2015, the German automotive supplier ZF Friedrichshafen acquired TRW. During that time from then to now, the BCS business has started to put high attention to the changing automotive market and to invest into new technologies.

Since end of April 2018, BCS Automotive Interface Solutions is a standalone company. BCS stands for Body Control Systems which has been the name of the business during the time when it belonged to bigger corporations.

BCS Automotive Interface Solutions is an automotive supplier specialized in solutions for the vehicle interior to ensure a safe and comfortable control of the car by the driver. It has about 3,600 employees and is operating locations and engineering centers in North America, Europe and Asia Pacific. Being present in 10 countries with 8 manufacturing facilities and 13 Sales and Engineering locations, BCS Automotive Interface Solutions has a footprint in all automotive relevant regions and support its customers globally. In 2020 it generated a revenue of about 700 million US dollar.

Ownership, no matter if in technological, commercial or social context is the primary value which we as BCS promote and expect from each of our employees to demonstrate in the daily work - to best serve all our stakeholders: our clients, our suppliers, the public, our shareholders and ultimately our employees.
