Wide range of steering column switches from Templin Automotive in OE parts quality.

Whereas previously only replicas were available on the independent aftermarket, the commercial vehicle parts supplier also offers steering column switches in original equipment quality.

Suitable steering column switches are available for almost all common commercial vehicle models. Only original products of original equipment quality used in the independent aftermarket can guarantee the ideal and smooth functioning of the steering column switch. The functionalities of the steering column switch such as direction indicator, headlight flasher, dimming up/down, windscreen wiper, etc. are relevant to safety. Lighting and signal components play an essential role during securing, as they ensure visibility for other road users as well as the driver's view and represent a central test criterion at the TÜV. However, overuse can lead to wear and tear or electronic defects, even failure of the switch. This must then be replaced in accordance with the relevant regulations.

More efficiency with belt tensioners from Templin Automotive in OE parts quality.

Templin Automotive offers a wide range of belt tensioners for a wide variety of vehicle models in a quality comparable to that of original equipment manufacturers. The optimum tension of the belt ensures that the power of the engine is always fully and continuously transmitted to the aggregates.


Only the best and most robust materials of the highest quality reduce vibrations in the bearings and avoid unnecessarily high wear. In addition, the belt tensioners from Templin Automotive are equipped with screws of a higher steel grade (10.9).


Belt tensioners with suspension can be optimally adjusted and dampen the vibrations. In this way, continuous power transmission is achieved in every speed range and with every change in speed.

Belt tensioners enable ideal power transmission at all times without increasing fuel consumption. In comparison, a conventional V-belt drive achieves an efficiency of about 93 percent. This means that about 7.0 percent of the energy used is lost through the belt drive. However, if the belt drive is equipped with a belt tensioner with suspension, the efficiency increases to up to 98 percent. The energy loss is reduced to a minimum.

Further step towards internationalization at ST-Templin Automotive GmbH

Mr. Andrew Wood will strengthen the sales team of the commercial vehicle specialist from 01.06.2020. ST-Templin Automotive GmbH thus has another very experienced commercial vehicle professional on board.

As Key Account Manager, Mr. Wood will be responsible in particular for Great Britain, Ireland, Scandinavia, Iceland, Spain, Portugal, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and the USA.

"We are delighted that we have been able to win an experienced, extremely popular and internationally networked commercial vehicle professional in him. With his extensive experience and excellent product knowledge, Mr. Wood will support and shape our international expansion in the long term," says Managing Director Thomas Lück, describing the decision.

Since the end of last year, Mr. Christian Senger has also been strengthening the international sales department at Templin Automotive as Key Account Manager. Mr. Senger is particularly responsible for the Baltic countries, various Eastern European markets and the Balkans.

He started his professional career at the company Wilhelm Löchterfeld GmbH before he joined PE Automotive GmbH & Co. KG where he worked in the area of customer service and technical training. As Area Sales - / Key Account Manager at PE Automotive he also worked for several years for international customers.

Market leader for brake discs in the aftermarket.

The core competencies of the product range, which extends over 21 assemblies, are spare parts for disc and drum brakes as well as for axles and chassis. Templin is now the market leader in the European aftermarket for brake discs for trucks, buses and vans: with more than 430 items, most of which are tested according to ECE R90. Using state-of-the-art casting and processing machines and using high-quality metals, Templin manufactures brake discs of OE quality that meet all automotive standards. To optimize the iron casting matrix, the company uses only the latest metallurgical technologies. The aim is to reduce thermal damage and cracking. Templin brake discs are balanced to 100 % and provide a comfortable, consistent feel during braking.

Not only brake discs, but also around 120 associated brake pads are part of Templin's current product portfolio. These are also tested in accordance with ECE R90 and tested for excellent braking performance at temperatures of up to 480 degrees Celsius. A running-in coating for better operating characteristics after initial installation additionally ensures low wear of the brake disc. The repair unit is completed by matching wear sensors as well as ABS rings and sensors.

Product range is constantly being expanded

Templin's product range now comprises more than 10,000 different products. And this for all leading vehicle manufacturers. Among others, expansion tanks, starters, generators and electric cables as well as numerous spring bolts, special bolts and brass bushings are to be found in the product range. All of these products are also supplied to well-known vehicle manufacturers. A new and successful product field are wheel hubs from our own production for a variety of newer vehicles. The available number of wheel hubs without bearings is over 140 different types as well as almost 50 wheel hubs with bearings. All wheel hubs fitted with bearings are exclusively fitted with branded bearings from well-known premium manufacturers.

There are many reasons for switching to one of the market leaders now. As an independent and honest manufacturer, Templin Automotive stands for over 70 years of top quality.

"Nothing can stop us now.
