In 1912, Leopold Kostal founded KOSTAL as a company to produce sockets, plugs and switches for industrial and domestic use. In 1927, the brand entered into the production of electrical components for automobiles. The company's first part for automobiles was a direction indicator switch. After a few decades, in 1953, the company started focusing on developing products for cars. KOSTAL started developing electronic components and sensors in the years 1973 and 1987, respectively. Currently, the brand supplies its parts to various leading automakers.
The range of automotive electrical/electronic systems manufactured by the company includes steering column modules, roof modules, center console modules, driver assistance parts, control panels, switches, interior/door control units and battery charging units. KOSTAL's range of switches includes windscreen wiper switches and steering column switches. The company produces complete steering column modules that include electronic units. These units get information from other controls and sensors to ensure the proper functioning of the steering column. The steering column modules include steering angle sensors that sense the angle of rotation of the steering wheel. The sensors measure the angle with the highest precision for effective handling and control of the vehicle.
The brand manufactures roof modules that are used for various functions such as tilting the sunshine roof and monitoring the lighting in the vehicle's interior. These modules incorporate rain/light sensors that adjust the lighting of the vehicle's interior depending on the atmospheric lighting conditions. The rain sensors help in activating the windscreen wipers. KOSTAL's center console modules and driver assistance components employ superior technology to provide a better comfort for the driver while handling the vehicle.
The door control units monitor the various parts associated with the doors and windows. KOSTAL's door control modules provide an improved control in maneuvering the window glass and adjusting the mirrors. The company's seat control units help in adjusting the seat position according to the personal choices of the occupant, and can store individual seat positions of each occupant. These control units also can also automatically adjust the seat position when the door is opened.
With the auto market booming with innovations in electronic/electric auto parts, KOSTAL is undertaking experimental measures to maintain its position as a key player in the industry. The brand's parts and accessories are known for their excellent performance, durability and reliability.
