Reliable, comfortable, and aesthetically beautiful – Southco access solution for automotive and e-mobility


The comfortability and overall satisfaction for the car owner. In addition to the heart component of a car such as the motor or battery, the mechanism which the car owners have daily contact with play an equally crucial role.

“Imagine the headrest is unstable, or the center console is hard to be accessed or the gas spring is not functioning as expected. All those things can result in a frustrated and dissatisfied car owner, who has as high expectation for these details as for the car’s horsepower”, says Christoph Gabl, product manager for access solution at KVT-Fastening. “Therefore Southco is the top manufacturer of the access solution and offers comprehensive products for the automotive industry”, said Gabl.
