The Art of Interior Trimming

Whereas once, interior trim was simply a way of lining the bodyshell, now it forms part of the complex safety and comfort package. Designers and Engineers impose many constraints, requiring materials to perform more than one function and to have qualities which are tested to destruction under extreme conditions.

Leather has to hold airbags with stitching that must break at exact pressures, stretch with electric massage cushions, wrap intricate shapes such as instrument binnacles, steering wheels and door pulls, quickly and constantly expand and contract in air conditioning and heated seats, repel dirt, rain, sun and everyday wear.

Many designs require organic shapes, miniture joins, special textures or embossed logos. Our production teams are constantly praised for producing 'beautiful and seemingly impossible' solutions.

KJR is a rare company. A producer of components or complete car interiors, using a combination of modern technology and flexible manufacturing techniques with the most traditional of skills and materials.

KJR - Quality without compromise.
