About us at Benteler Automotive Farsund AS

  • Our History
  • Global Information
  • Location

Founded in 1996 under Alcoa ownership the primary purpose of BAF was to service Volvo with hollow core subframes.
Since then BAF has grown in its intellectual capability and manufacturing capacity to its current position as a global provider
of highly complex hollow and solid, light weight aluminium castings.

Benteler Automotive has taken over BAF effective as of September 2012.

South Of Norway

Based in the very south of Norway, BAF has twice been nominated as casting company of the year, once in 2004 and again in 2010.

A quarter of a million tons

Since its launch BAF has produced more than 3 million car sets of steering knuckles and more than 20 million castings in total. We have the capacity to produce around 3 million castings each year.  BAF has consumed around a quarter of a million tons of high grade aluminium, all of it supplied in liquid form at 750 C directly from Alcoa's alloying furnace which is less than 200m from our factory gate.
