SINCE 1955

Pfeil Text Einleitung
In 1955 the entrepreneur Otto Riehle founded a company in Möglingen near Stuttgart for the production of towbars. After just a few years, he expanded the product range to include ski holders. Then, in the mid-sixties his son Hans Riehle took over the management and continuously expanded the success of the family business. In the following years ACPS Automotive went on to prove its technological leadership again and again.
