Already since the early foundation years, AUTOFLUG has been intensively dealing with textiles in various areas….
Thus today, the applications range from the manufacture and maintenance of different parachute systems including their harnesses and up to the unique textile absorption systems for mine-protected applications – the knowledge surrounding textile materials and their special processing methods are the main focus.
And it is only thanks to the high competence in textile that AUTOFLUG has become a market leader in the development and manufacture of textile safety seats which are used in numerous aircrafts and land vehicles.
The mechanical and fine-mechanical components that have been developed and produced…
… at AUTOFLUG for decades are ascribed real significant roles in lots of systems. They do not only have to be especially robust in numerous construction groups but also have to fulfill the low weight requirements quite frequently in the aviation sector.
The high competence in the area of building components and their possible processing paired with the knowledge of potential welding techniques and other finishing methods ensure that AUTOFLUG has made an excellent name for itself in the field of safety belts, flying structures and even large-capacity containers in aviation.
Absolute precision, the highest degree in reliability and functioning in the most extreme conditions…
… these are all properties that underline the competence of AUTOFLUG in the fields of electronic development and manufacture.
Just as is the case in the other competences, quality assurance always takes special priority. For that reason, various electronics run through a large amount of lab tests before they are shipped – ranging from the climate chamber, to vibration tests and finally the burn-in under extreme conditions. That is the only way that allows us to guarantee the products’ quality long-term and enables the use for many years with limited costs for upkeep.
Committed to rescuing people and ensuring their safety – since 1919.

As a globally recognized supplier and service partner of the international aviation industry and for defense technology, we develop, produce and service a wide range of textile, mechanical and electronic components and systems, amongst others. AUTOFLUG has decades of experience and expertise in the areas of rescue and safety, ergonomics, textiles, mechanical systems, precision engineering, electronics, software as well as measuring and control technology
AUTOFLUG has well equipped production areas for textile, mechanical and electronic manufacturing. On a production area of more than 6,000 sqm in Rellingen, Germany, experienced specialists are manufacturing the AUTOFLUG products.
Moreover, AUTOFLUG has a large parachute packing area as well as workshops for maintenance and repair.
The importance of multinational assignments is constantly increasing and therefore it is not just the tasks that are becoming more diverse and demanding. Faster reaction times are required, which makes the simple conversion of aircraft and helicopter cabins increasingly important. AUTOFLUG’s modular cabin concepts are ideally suited to meet these challenges. Thanks to the AUTOFLUG airFLEX product range, the flexible adaptation of cabin equipment to suit the assignment is no longer a problem.
The AUTOFLUG airFAST product range enables extremely fast conversion of the entire aircraft or helicopter cabin, right up to equipment variants for intensive medical care for patients immediately on board. The basis for this is provided by the AUTOFLUG airSEAT group products, which offer seats for almost every assignment scenario. In addition to the military market, AUTOFLUG also develops and produces seating systems for the civil aviation sector.

Today’s multifaceted threats constantly pose new challenges to emergency services and the equipment they use. To be able to react immediately to the increasing requirements due to the different assignment scenarios, AUTOFLUG is in close contact with emergency services and vehicle manufacturers. Occupant protection in military vehicles is always the top priority.
With the AUTOFLUG OVERMATCH seating systems, the occupants in protected wheeled and tracked vehicles are ideally protected in every situation. The unique textile damping system reduces external forces to a minimum and therefore protects the occupants ideally against threats from mines, IEDs or crashes. The portfolio is supplemented by equipment elements from the AUTOFLUG landFLEX product group.
