In 1906, Wilhelm Reutter founded the company Stuttgarter Carosserie- und Radfabrik (Stuttgart Body and Wheel Factory). After his brother joined the business, the company was renamed Stuttgarter Karosseriewerk Reutter & Co. and was headquartered at Augustenstraße 82 in the western part of the city.
The company quickly made a name for itself in the up-and-coming automotive industry and patented the Reform-Karosserie, a predecessor to today’s convertible. In 1963, REutter CAROsserie became RECARO, the seating specialist, which revolutionized automotive seats in 1965 with the Sport Seat.
Since 2016, the listed company Adient is a licensee of the RECARO brand for the Automotive Seating division. The world’s largest producer and supplier of automotive seats uses the brand in a trusting partnership with RECARO Holding.
