Innovation leader in Towing and Transportation

The ACPS Group is the market leader for towbar solutions in the OE (Original Equipment) and AM (Aftermarket) passenger car industry. The success story of ACPS started with the creation of the ORIS GmbH company in 1955; following the innovation of the removable towbar / hitch in 1985. Our company developed the world's first mechanical swiveling towbar in 2000 and then the first half electrical towbar in 2009. The spirit of innovation continued with the world's first fully retractable, electrical towbar also in the year 2009 and numerous additional carrier and protection system products for the automotive industry. In 2006 we joined the Bosal Group allowing us to grow globally and significantly expand our research and development applications. We have developed a remarkable new towbar ball-mount system which will improve safety and load-carrying ability (Fix-Matic), and have now made the comfort of fully automatic retractable towbars available for small to medium-range passenger cars.
