Introducing our business units

Our BILSTEIN Academy brings together more than six decades of expertise in shock absorbers and suspension systems. Our colleagues are not simply “silent custodians” of this treasure trove of knowledge, but technically skilled and communicative mediators.

As lecturers, we organize internal and external face-to-face and online training courses – primarily for employees, wholesalers and workshops. The content ranges from shock absorber production to suspension installation in the areas of series production, tuning and motor sports. In addition, there is technical support for workshops and the trade as well as the official BILSTEIN Service and Technical Centres.
