We are a leading manufacturer of polyester yarns, exclusively for the international automotive industry
Autofil – proud of our past, excited by our future…
Autofil Worldwide Limited was established in 1996 and has developed to become one of Europe’s leading manufacturers and suppliers of polyester yarns solely for the automotive sector.
The company was co-founded by Michael Heck and Anthony Ullmann, who together share an impressive 50 years of industry expertise.
Following a significant investment in 1996, Autofil Worldwide began production at its state-of-the-art UK headquarters at Sherwood Park, Nottingham, in 1997.
The company was built on the foundations of specialist knowledge, a strong ethos of high quality and customer care, and a focus on innovation.
In the year 2000, Autofil announced a joint venture with Italy’s leading polyester yarn producer Sinterama, which has complemented Autofil’s operations with sites in Italy, Turkey, Brazil, Mexico and China.
In September 2012, Sinterama acquired 100% of the share capital in Autofil Holdings Ltd. which set the scene for a transparent and united global automotive group.
The Autofil story is one of continual development and achievement.
