February 2023 marked a major milestone for DENSO Europe, the leading OE component manufacturer and system supplier. This year, the company celebrated its 50th anniversary since it opened its first regional headquarters in continental Europe.

DENSO Europe began in the Netherlands in 1973, with just five employees. Today, the company has expanded significantly, with a workforce of over 220 employees from 25 different nationalities. The company's Aftermarket division has a presence in more than 45 European countries, offering OE quality parts and services to the aftermarket industry.

According to Fatiha Laauich, DENSO Europe's Pan European Strategic Marketing Manager, "this first 50 years are merely the beginning for DENSO as we look forward to the next 50 and beyond. We intend to combine continued financial growth and product expansion with our core principles of environmental sustainability and peace and wellbeing for our fellow European citizens."

Over the years, DENSO Europe has grown substantially, with the addition of a new facility to remanufacture starters and alternators for Toyota in 1987. In 1990, a new office and warehouse was opened in Weesp, Netherlands, and by the following year, DENSO Europe had a workforce of 100. In 1996, the company opened its current, reconstructed headquarters, which not only caters to the company's remanufacturing program but is also home to its aftermarket operation in the region.

DENSO Europe's commitment to environmental sustainability is evident in the company's products and practices. The company has been instrumental in developing environmentally friendly technologies, such as electrification and fuel cell systems, and is committed to reducing carbon emissions in its operations.

As DENSO Europe celebrates its 50th anniversary, the company looks forward to continuing its tradition of excellence in the automotive industry, bringing innovative products and services to the European market. Further details of the DENSO Aftermarket program are available online at
