About us

The Company


The BIA Group based in Solingen is an international supplier to the automotive industry. We manufacture plastic components which are then chrome plated using electrolytic processes. We supply almost all major car manufacturers in Europe as well as some Japanese and Chinese manufacturers.

With around 800 employees, BIA is one of the largest private employers in Solingen.

The BIA plants comply with the latest standards and of course comply with all environmental regulations. Furthermore, BIA's corporate image is underpinned by continuous optimisation of its own processes and procedures. We thus make a valuable contribution to

protecting the environment and conservation of natural resources. In this regard our electroplating lines set the industry standards all over the world.

As an operator of electroplating plants, BIA is classified as a major hazard company. You will find important information in our information brochure (only German).

Moreover, we take our responsibility within society, not only in the field of environmental and resource protection, very seriously. We are also involved in various social projects as well as grassroots sports. The focus of our funding is primarily on local institutions and associations for child and youth work. An overview of our commitment can be found here.
