About COBA Automotive

Design. Develop. Deliver


COBA Automotive is part of the dynamic COBA Plastics group of manufacturing companies. The automotive industry has steered COBA for more than 50 years. Founded in 1966, COBA today employs over 900 people operating out of ten facilities in seven countries, enjoying global recognition.

Through partnership with the world’s largest automotive manufacturers we continue to be involved with some of the most successful vehicles ever, with COBA parts becoming standard for many leading brands.

We design and manufacture innovative technical components that support both weight reduction and cost reduction initiatives, and use multiple materials for functionality and performance benefits.

From our state of the art Engineering Centre in the UK we develop innovative products that are refined and tested through cutting edge prototyping and FEA processes. This ensures we deliver exceptional solutions that are always on track to exceed our customers’ expectations.

COBA Automotive also sets the pace when it comes to seating and interior plastic extrusion and mouldings. We offer one of the largest ranges of automotive trim retainers using the latest precision technologies.

These include the innovative COBAflex family of retainers (profiles with non-woven fleece) used to firmly attach the seat cover to the underside of the car seat.
