Hymer is a specialist for mobile homes, caravans, and camping busses that are “made in Germany” and is one of the most successful manufacturers in Europe. For the European market leader in the premium market, Westiform supplied a variety of technical plastic parts to enhance the front of the vehicles.
Westiform equipped the Hymer B-SL model with a 1400x320mm front grille as well as fog light covers made of plastic. To offer the customer individual finishing of the front section, both are available in two different versions: either the ABS plastic is given a chrome finish and then coated with an electroplated layer or the ABS/PMMA plastic is dyed. In both versions, the plastics are warmed up until flexible and then suctioned onto the deep-draw tool that was custom-made for Hymer. Once cooled, the plastic maintains the shape this created. Furthermore, Westiform produces diverse deep-draw parts for the interior, which, due to their exact fit, are used to fasten individual components.
From the technical consultation to the concept, development, and manufacture up to the logistics, Westiform is the general contractor that provides the full service.
