RECARO Automotive Seats


Recaro Automotive Seating has been a world-renowned seat brand since 1965. The company designs and makes an extensive line of premium-grade sport seats for prominent automotive manufacturers, as well as aftermarket customers. Recaro’s philosophy of constant improvement has allowed it to become a name that is synonymous with safety and value. Experts at Recaro combine quality soft leather, strong steel, lightweight aluminum, and advanced fiber composites with superior craftsmanship to create seats that are all about ergonomics, comfort, and distinctive aesthetics.

The history of Recaro goes back to 1906 when Wilhelm Reutter established a coachbuilding company that specialized in luxury and motor vehicles, as well as English coach harnesses. Back in 1963, the company ceased producing car bodies and two years later introduced its first sport seats which quickly became popular in motor racing circles. Today Recaro is a product group of Adient, one of the largest car seat manufacturers with a rich heritage. Based in Kaiserslautern, Germany, Recaro has locations in many other countries, including the USA, and operates in the European, American and Asian markets.

Committed to innovation Recaro has raised the benchmark in the automotive seating industry. From the world’s lightest car seat and the first retrofit sport seat to the most advanced commercial vehicle seats and state-of-the-art sport seats in a new composite design, Recaro never stops developing cutting-edge seating solutions that take driver comfort to the text step. The company’s engineers don’t focus on those short-term trends, but rather on such important characteristics as safety, functionality and ergonomics. Recaro uses years of experience in professional motorsport to make seats that reduce fatigue and allow you to have a perfect command of the vehicle. Unique concepts and new forms ensure that Recaro products provide seat performance that is one-of-a-kind.
