MUNICH -- German antitrust authorities searched the offices of six automotive suppliers last week: Magna International Inc., IAC Group, Faurecia, Borgers AG, Autoneum Germany GmbH and one other supplier whose identity could not be confirmed.
The companies are under investigation on suspicion they have been fixing prices since at least 2002 on car trunk linings, according to the German federal agency that investigates antitrust matters.
The agency declined to reveal which suppliers had their offices searched.
But Magna, IAC and Faurecia said in separate responses that their German operations were searched as part of the probe.
Borgers and Autoneum said in statements that they would cooperate with antitrust authorities.
