70 years of business success

Taking tradition into the future


Founded in 1947, today Novem looks back on a success story spanning decades. Right from the start, the emphasis was on the production of high quality wood trim elements for the premium segment of the automobile industry. Since then we have constantly expanded our business, entered new markets and broadened our portfolio of products and materials.


A business that began with wooden steering wheels gradually expanded to include belt lines, central consoles, instrument panels and door cladding. Growing means expanding. Across Europe – and beyond. From the Czech Republic and Italy to Honduras and China. We have repeatedly seized business opportunities and developed from a supplier of wood trim elements to the global leader in sophisticated, high-end products. Novem has been distinguished with a variety of awards, including the BMW Innovation Award and, most recently, in 2015 the Daimler Supplier Award. This success proves that we are on the right track and reinforces our commitment to forging a path that combines tradition with progress. It is only the combination of a traditional concept of quality with the power of innovation that has brought us to our current leading position.
