RHODIUS

RHODIUS, a leading global manufacturer of custom-built passive safety components including filter solutions and tubes for airbags and safety-belt tensioning systems.

RHODIUS specialises in tube forming and the knitting and pressing of fine wire mesh into filters, which then prevent debris from puncturing airbags and cool the heat released when pressured gas cartridges are ignited. The business also develops filtration and separation applications for the chemical process engineering industry.

Founded in 1925 in Weissenburg, Germany, RHODIUS has grown into an international operation with two production and development plants in Germany along with production sites in Hungary and China. To fully optimise production, the business has its own R&D and technology department where it develops the machines used to manufacture filters. This enables the business to generate higher productivity levels and margins compared to its competitors.
