Our beginnings

Kostel Promet was founded in 2001. Our first job was to make headrests for Renault Clio, in collaboration with our business partner, Johnson Controls NTU. Today, under the new name of Kostelar, we operate as a Tier 2 supplier to major global automotive brands such as BMW, Citroen, Land Rover, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan, Toyota and Volvo.

More than 52 milion units

We are proud of the fact that since our foundation we have produced over 52 million units, making our own contribution to comfort and safety in as many as 16 million cars.

We are a family business, built on the belief of our founder Josip Štruk that employees are the most valuable asset. From day one competence, diligence and commitment of our employees have been the main drivers of our success.
