Our headquarters are located at the heart of Europe in Ludwigshafen in the Rhine-Neckar Metropolitan Region. Established under the former G+H, the present-day ISOLITE GmbH benefits from its convenient location in the belt of cities between the Frankfurt Rhine-Main region and Stuttgart. The excellent traffic links in all directions make the region highly attractive for many other global players as well.
ISOLITE GmbH’s first components factory is also in Ludwigshafen. With our highly efficient manufacturing and logistics concepts, we are able to meet our customers’ needs for trouble-free, fast service provision.
ISOLITE GmbH’s second components factory was opened in Worms, Germany, in February 2014. Consistent quality is ensured with our state-of-the-art technology, which includes remote maintenance. Besides manufacturing components, this new center is also the worldwide logistics hub for the ISOLITE Group. We work with logistics provider TST to offer our customers fast, convenient logistics and delivery deadlines they can always rely on.
The ISOLITE Group has an additional sales and engineering site near the city of Göttingen. The Nörten-Hardenberg office is ideally situated in the heart of Germany, in close proximity to existing OEMs and top-tier customers from the automotive, aviation and industrial sectors. With engineering teams and global sales teams on site, ISOLITE is able to expand the services it can offer to existing and potential new customers.
Our US company MINILEIT Inc. is based in Greenville, SC, in the south-east of the country. As a 100% subsidiary of ISOLITE GmbH, from here we not only manufacture components but also operate extensive sales activities aimed at opening up new markets in North and Central America. This enables us to supply well-known German OEMs and American companies in the immediate vicinity directly, offering them crucial benefits in terms of logistics, quality and delivery reliability.
In 2017, the ISOLITE Group opened a new production and distribution site in Wixom covering around 2,660 m². Wixom is located in the state of Michigan in the northeast of the USA, and its history is deeply rooted in the motor industry. The MINILEIT team with its “Sales” and “Engineering Support” divisions is thus the first point of call for customers in North America. In view of the high level of local demand, production in Wixom is focused primarily on hot-end products.
In August 2015 we opened an ISOLITE manufacturing and sales center in Daegu, South Korea. Minileit MMT Limited is a joint-venture between ISOLITE GmbH and MMT Automotive. ISOLITE and MMT carry out joint projects on this approx. 1500 m² site, including manufacturing and installing our insulation components – always in compliance with the customary strict ISOLITE manufacturing and quality standards.
In January 2017, the MINILEIT (PTY) Ltd. autonomous manufacturing and sales center was opened in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. The acquisition of GENTECH PREFORM & FIBRE in South Africa complements the products and experience of the ISOLITE Group with additional expertise in the cold-end sector. MINILEIT (PTY) Ltd. and GENTECH PREFORM & FIBRE have a total production area of 4,500 m² and have around 50 employees between them. These two additional sites ensure that ISOLITE can continue meeting customer-specific requirements promptly and to the same high standard around the world.
