Key Account Manager Automotive
With more than 30 years of experience in high-quality design and material development for OEM and Tier 1 in the premium segment, Poppe has proven its worth as a reliable development and series supplier.
Our core competences include seals for vehicle bodies and components for the engine compartment, fresh air intake, doors and flaps, and for draining dirty water from the roof and tank filling areas.
Poppe engine hood seals are synonymous with innovative product design and application-specific material development. Among other things, they play an essential role in stable thermal management in the engine compartment and prevent exhaust gas and vapor from entering the vehicle’s fresh air system.
Water tank seals are used for the targeted drainage of rainwater, meltwater and washer fluid from the windshield. The main aim is to prevent exhaust gas and vapor from entering the fresh air system. Thanks to our wide range of process technologies and our broad portfolio of materials, we are involved in water tank development right from the start.
Poppe door joint seals are used to protect the entrance area of the vehicle against dirt deposits and to absorb driving noise, thereby increasing passenger comfort. Thanks to our intelligent design concept combining sealing and mounting functions, we are positioned as a reliable development partner for the automotive industry.
Although not in sight, water drain hoses play a major role in ensuring the functionality of the sunroof and passenger comfort. The water drain hose, which is partially integrated into the body shell, directs rainwater, meltwater and washer fluid from the sunroof system to the wet area of the vehicle (e.g. the wheelhouse) quickly and silently.
We equip trucks, buses, construction and agricultural vehicles with our products. We also produce door seals for rail vehicles. These profiles reliably seal against airstream, splash water and dirt. Supplemented by switching systems, they help protect passengers. We develop special compounds based on the latest regulations and standards that comply with EN 45545, among others.
Multi-components from Poppe are used in buses as window profile frames, trailer seals and hatch seals. Innovative manufacturing technologies enable us, among other things, to continuously produce wheel arch brushes.
