Originally founded in 1843 in Michigan, Collins & Aikman Corporation was engaged primarily in the design, engineering and manufacture of automotive interior components, systems and modules. The company supplied products from three main categories: plastic components and cockpits, soft trim and convertible roof systems. Its products included instrument panels, fully assembled cockpit modules, floor and acoustic systems, automotive fabric and interior trim, as well as exterior trim and trim set, backlights, well slings, tonneau covers and power actuating systems.

In North America, Collins & Aikman manufactured components for approximately 90% of all light vehicle production platforms. Two of the company’s biggest clients were General Motors and the Ford Motor Company.

On October 12, 2007, Collins & Aikman Corporation went out of business after an unsuccessful reorganization attempt stemming from a 2005 Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing.
