    Takeover of Orion Automotive

    20 Years ago, Orion Automotive was founded by Ruud Vink.  As a supplier, we were closely involved in its establishment. Today, we are taking over this Dutch company. Orion is specialised in accessories for light commercial vehicles. Through the cooperation with AtraXion, Orion will also offer rims and tyres for vans in the future. We strongly believe in the future of the van as part of the mobility solution.
