We are an innovative, medium sized, family owned company in the development and production of insulation products, mainly for the automotive industry. With over 250 employees and the history and expertise of our predecessor companies, we are today one of the regional emergent "hidden champions".

Flexible, fast, innovative

We are enthusiastic problem solvers for acoustic insulations and consider our spirit of innovation, our flexibility and our speed our predominant strengths.

With more than 1 million dashboard insulations annually, based on different, partly patented material as well as technology concepts, we supply a significant proportion of the requirements, especially for the Volkswagen Group.

We have proven to be a strong development partner of our customer VW, who, in 2012, mastered their product SOP for the most important car in Europe, the VW Golf, with great success.

As a reward we received the Volkswagen Group Award 2013 as one of only 21 suppliers worldwide. The DFA Bielefeld is here the only locally established award winner besides global players and DAX companies.

We are professionals with ambition and know-how

Our outstanding and experienced team is the driving force behind our excellent performance - we employ highly qualified professionals who have profound and detailed knowledge as well as many years of relevant experience. Therefore, we have mastered the complete process of developing and improving acoustics products according to customer requirements.

This process is strongly supported by our well-equipped chemical, physical and acoustic laboratory facilities. By working together with our sister company in Goslar, Germany and our subsidiary DFA US Inc. in the United States, founded in 2015, the DFA group can now develop complete acoustic packages and offer them on two continents.
