About us


Beside the concentration process in the industry, which has been going on for some time, there has been a trend to mergers and acquisitions in the distribution. The leading trading groups have also been affected hereby. These continuing changes have led to the decision of founding a new alliance. Headquartered in Frankfurt/Germany, global one automotive GmbH was founded in 2016 by WM SE (Osnabrück, Germany) and SSF Imported Auto Parts (Los Angeles, USA). Already in 2017 global one enlarged its alliance by eight further Shareholders which perfectly fulfill our requirements.
