Swabian company Eberspächer is a family-owned business now in its fifth generation. Today it supplies the auto industry with everything from bumpers to catalytic converters and car heaters.
In 2011, Eberspächer boasted a turnover of more than 2.5 Billion euros -- around a third more than in the previous year. But this year falling demand has the company facing new challenges. The current economic crisis is leaving its mark.
