HMG - Hyundai Motor Group - the 4th largest manufacturer in the world.

That said, certain components are specialized and manufactured by one of the few that actually make them, i.e. I think there are only 4 spark plug manufacturers - Denso, NGK, Champion and Bosch. All other brands - including "specialty" brands for racing/performance - simply have one of those 4 make them to a particularly specification. Same with batteries, dozens of "brands" but only a handful of manufacturers.

Same with bulbs/LEDs, airbags, probably applies to most of the brake components, suspension (springs and shocks), bearings..
