German Engineering – for more 75 years


Experience and expertise

There is no replacement for experience. At PE – formerly known as Peters Ennepetal – you can rely on the concentrated expertise and competence of over 75 years.

We know the needs of the requirements of the commercial vehicle market and support dealers, workshops and fleet operators with branded spare parts for repairs in line with current market value. Since 1947 and also in the future.


The beginning

The beginnings of the family business reach back to 1947. At that time, the company Peters was founded in Ennepetal.


Generation change

With the death of Hermann Peters in 1967, Jürgen Freitag, nephew of the founder, takes over the management and leads the company in a new direction by specialising in spare parts for commercial vehicles along with worldwide sales.


Start of worldwide distribution

The PE brand has been registered internationally in 1979 and is one of the leading suppliers in the independent aftermarket.


New image, proven quality

On 2 May 2011, Hermann Peters GmbH & Co. KG changes its name and corporate design. With the change of name to PE Automotive GmbH & Co. KG, the PE brand is synchronised with the company name.


New logistics centre

In summer 2014, PE repositioned itself and bundled three previous locations in the new logistics centre in Wuppertal. 50,000 square metres of floor space and a state-of-the-art high-bay warehouse ensure fast spare parts availability and efficient processes.


BPW Group

PE Automotive has been part of the BPW Group since 1 January 2016 and has since been able to significantly expand its product range once again.


Taking over Monark as part of the whole

PE Automotive took over the retail business of Monark Automotive GmbH and the Monark brand on February 1, 2020. With top products, Monark ideally complements the PE range with vehicle electrics and lighting.
