Some of our Customers

"Comfort, load control, and ventilation are well-established challenges in backpack design. The technology introduced in our Aerorise backpacks has only recently become available and is groundbreaking for the industry. The design is truly impressive from a technical perspective and reinforces our belief that collectively with our partners, we can make a remarkable difference and take the industry a step forward."

Bicycle Saddle

Bicycle saddles manufactured using particle foam. The combination of the injection molding process and the subsequent "Patch PRO" process allows for maximum comfort. The product can be manufactured in Germany thanks to high automation.

Specialized Bike Saddle

The S-Works Romin Evo with Mirror technology has been specially developed for the performance cycling market by the engineering teams of Specialized, Carbon, and OECHSLER. It excels in rider comfort, pelvic stability, and soft tissue health.

Trekking Backpack

Trekking backpacks create an entirely new carrying experience by integrating 3D printed lattice comfort pads. Made of BASF Ultrasint TPU01, it significantly reduces temperature and humidity rise at pressure points.

Riddell Football Helmet

3D-printed lattice can, depending on their structure, also absorb energy. Therefore it is predestined for protective equipment. Our customer Riddell uses this technology for damping elements in football helmets for the American football league.


3D-printed midsoles upgrade your running game: Lattice enables enhanced cushioning and turns vertical force into forwarding motion. Developed in close cooperation with our partner Carbon, they have also been the first product OECHSLER ever ran in additive series production.

Seating Furniture

OECHSLER’s innovative approach to manufacturing seating furniture yields an unprecedented and more comfortable way of cushioning, freedom of design, and high sustainability due to easy recycling of the individual parts.

Knee Pad

STRAUSS is the leading brand for workwear in Europe, and is constantly driving solutions to improve working life for their customers. As a powerhouse of Additive Manufacturing, OECHSLER is the ideal partner to implement these products in series production.
