HUF parts was the first to start supplying door locks to Mercedes-Benz back in the 1920s. However, even before that in 1908, the company was founded by Ernst Hülsbeck with the aim of selling high-quality ornamental hinges and numerous small items made of brass and iron. Interestingly the company was one of the first to develop and then produce high quality mechanical and then electronic locking systems, for the steering wheel. Later the company introduced remote locking, tire pressure monitoring, and telematics systems which were and continued to be used in an array of vehicles. Fast forward to present day and the company boasts of having over 7500 employees located in 15 countries. Out of all the employees the company has the most number of designers and technicians working in both the US and Germany. There are also experts housed in the company’s operational offices in India, China, Brazil, and Romania.
HUF has over the years been responsible for manufacturing and developing numerous types of locks. However, their Passive Entry, as well as Keyless Go along with the Kick Sensor, happen to be the most innovative and popular. It is for this reason that people continue to buy only HUF car parts when security is their top priority
