Alpil is an aftermarket company that was founded in 2002 and specializes in producing high quality aerodynamic products for various European made vehicles, specifically Audi’s and Volkswagen. Alpil has proven that anything is possible as long as you have the passion for doing it.
Today, Alpil is one of the most recognizable brands in the market and has impressed many Volkswagen and Audi owners worldwide.
To better understand the Alpil brand, we should revisit its roots. Alpil is a brand established by Ikeda Akiyasu, who was born in Kyoto, Japan. He already built a passion for cars at a young age as he loved to see the supercars at the Kyoto Tomita Auto. When he entered high school, he joined the prestigious automobile department at Rakunan High School and aimed to become an automotive mechanic.
Soon after graduating from high school, Akiyasu joined a subsidiary (MTD) of Tomita Auto, where he found himself not thoroughly enjoying the handy work, so he turned to sales. He started as a parts sales representative of BMW Tuner (Hartge). It is where he first discovered his interest in European aerodynamic products, which added fuel to his already burning passion for vehicles.
Then in 1987, he decided to establish his own wheel company named Carving. Carving manufactures and sells many original wheels, such as the European image wheel brand (Stark) and the American image wheel brand (Wilcox Head 40). The company closed in 2001 due to unavoidable circumstances at that time.
In May 2002, NEWING was founded. Following that, the Alpil brand was introduced. It was a way to propose Volkswagen and Audi parts made in Japan that incorporate the strong points that Europe and America had learned thus far. For almost two decades, Alpil has consistently given all their customers the best products available in the market.
