Automotive suppliers may boast about their new ideas, but innovation at Inteva is more than just “the big idea.” What sets us apart is the ability to anticipate what customers want before they even want it — time and time again — then bringing on the hard work and perseverance to make it happen.
Inteva is the collection of the world’s “best of the best” talent, experience and technologies in four global product lines — interiors, roofs, closures, and motors & electronics. Although our brand name was introduced in 2008, we bring decades of know-how and a well-honed, proven culture of vision and problem-solving.
