HQM Sachsenring GmbH is a Zwickau-based company that supplies chassis and body parts to the automotive industry.


The company was named after the Sachsenring race track.

Called VEB Sachsenring until 1990, it was a producer of vehicles in the former German Democratic Republic, its most famous product being the Trabant.

After three years in bankruptcy, Sachsenring AG was purchased in February, 2006 by Härterei und Qualitätsmanagement GmbH (HQM) of Leipzig. The company supplies among other things, the Volkswagen factory with parts for the Golf and Passat models.
