Behr is a corporation located in Germany. This company specializes in vehicle air conditioning, as well as engine cooling systems. The headquarters for this company is located in Stuttgart Feuerback, and it has a staff of more than 18,500. Its other areas of operation include locations in the United States in Michigan, Ohio, South Carolina, and Texas. Approximately 60 percent of its sales are done outside of Germany in other locations. It owns and operates 10 development centers and 30 production plants all over the globe.
In 1905, Julius Fr. Behr joined forces with Veigel and Zoller at the age of 33 years old. They began to manufacture tachometers and radiators for passenger vehicles, as well as cake tins for different pastry shops. Andreas Veigel left the partnership, and Behr teamed up with Zoller. They then renamed the company Behr & Zoller.
Just two years after the name change, Zoller left, leaving Behr as the sole owner of the company. The company was then renamed Suddeutsche Kuhlerfabrik Julius Fr. Behr (Southern German Radiator Factory Julius Fr. Behr). Behr envisioned a wonderful and bright future of vehicle transportation in general and dropped the manufacturing of cake tins in order to purely concentrate on radiator manufacturing. In 1917, he opened up to building fin systems for airplanes and coolers for specialty vehicles.
In the 1920s and 1930s, Germany slipped into a Great Depression, resulting in many bankruptcies and high unemployment. The company did not let it affect its business; it then built new machinery and another production plant located in Feuerback. The manufacturer then was well-known for providing radiators and cooling systems for trucks, locomotives, motorcycles, and airplanes.
Behr manufactures eight different items for passenger cars: air conditioning system, fuel management, oil management, cylinder components, piston systems, valve trains, air management systems, and cooling systems. It has come a long way from just providing radiators for passenger cars over the years.
The company also prides itself in making products for commercial vehicles, as well as products for motorsports and special engines. Products for these vehicles include air management systems, valve trains, fuel management, oil management, cylinder components, piston systems, air conditioning, and cooling systems.
Failure is not an option for this company. Although it provides top-quality products, it is always on the lookout for new technology to further advance its products for each type of vehicle. To ensure high quality, it forms quality plans during product development. This involves testing prior to releasing a new design. This is instilled in every employee that the company hires. Testing upon testing is completed by highly trained team members.
This company also enjoys feedback by all customers that purchase one or more products. Behr takes the advice, feedback, and questions seriously. This has helped establish this company as one of the better known names for OES and aftermarket products. It is said that one in every four vehicles comes equipped with a Behr cooling system. Since this company is global, so is its reputation for high-quality products.

Save Money with Behr OES Parts
OES stands for Original Equipment Supplier, and we have thousands of OES parts on our website, with more being added every day. We are always working to acquire more OES parts, and find more OEM manufacturers to make solid partnerships with. We label OES parts OEM, and Genuine Parts Genuine on eEuroparts.com. If you see a part that says Quality: OEM, you are getting a Genuine quality part. If you're one of the many people that are hazy on what this concept really means, you will be asking:
What are OES Parts and why are they so good?
OES (AKA OEM, Original Equipment Manufacturer) parts are made by the same company that makes the genuine dealer part. Same part, made in the same factory, made with the same tools. The only difference is, often time they will have a separate case to finish, and the part will not be distributed through the dealer network.
In many contracts that OEMs make when signing up to be the OES for a car company, they will include provisions to sell the part under their own name. It works out beneficially for both parties because the car company, such as BMW, wont have to dedicate the in-house resources to physically produce a part, a task that can easily be done elsewhere. The OEM will benefit because they will be able to make extra profit on the side by selling the parts they make through the aftermarket distribution market, while also not having to pay for the R&D involved with custom tooling and development. The last bonus is that we are able to buy OEM parts on the aftermarket and pass the savings onto our customers that demand only the best.
