Most people have an SEG Automotive product in their car or commercial vehicle and do not even know it: The global supplier of starter motors, alternators and components for electrification powers over 300 million vehicles on the road today. Now, SEG Automotive brings its renowned manufacturing competence and OE quality to the automotive aftermarket in North America with comprehensive coverage.
In January 2018, SEG Automotive announced the acquisition of BOSCH’ Starter and Alternator OEM factories worldwide. It represents over 100 years of tradition of innovations in rotating electrical products, and SEG Automotive continues its heritage as one of the global leading OEM supplier in New Starters and Alternators.

Now the company continues to expand its aftermarket business in North America.

In fact, our aftermarket products are manufactured on our OE lines with the exact same quality standards and components,” said David Manor, the director of sales for SEG Automotive North America.
Almost all automotive OEMs worldwide, including major US brands, rely on SEG Automotive’s global production network – with over 7,000 employees on 6 continents. The supplier’s portfolio covers a variety of product segments: from passenger cars and light trucks, commercial vehicles, farm and agricultural vehicles, construction, and Industrial applications.
“We will continue to invest in expanding our portfolio in 12-volt, 24-volt, and 48-volt applications to further strengthen our market coverage and to become one of the most relevant aftermarket supplier in USA, Canda, and Mexico: Our organization has made a commitment to be the last man standing for Starters and Alternators both for the OEM business and the Aftermarket.
