chipboard industry


Explanation:
I think we need a little bit more context, I'm afraid.

Normally, Plattenindustrie would translate as 'record industry', but that's obviously not right here ...

This site: http://www.silverserver.co.at/platte/

suggests that it's something to do with chipboard / MDF, etc. But I'm still not sure how that fits in with the car industry ...

Excuse my ramblings, I'll stop now!
