Three Brose plants receive the Ford World Excellence Award
Mit dem World Excellence Award würdigt Ford drei Brose Werke für überdurchschnittliche Qualität, Liefertreue und Wirtschaftlichkeit. (v.l.n.r): Derrick Kuzak, Group Vice President Product Development Ford Motor Company; John Parker, Executive Vice President Asia Pacific & Africa Ford Motor Company; Mark Fields, President of the Americas Ford Motor Company; John Fleming, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer Ford of Europe; Jürgen Otto, Vorsitzender der Geschäftsführung der Brose Gruppe und Tony Brown, Group Vice President Global Purchasing Ford Motor Company
There were only two companies out of the 36 suppliers honored in Detroit to have won the award three times – and one of them was the Brose Group. “The fact that several of our plants have repeatedly won this award goes to show that Brose is indeed a competent partner. Especially in these difficult times, this recognition of our superior quality and reliability confirms that we are on the right track,” says a delighted Jürgen Otto, CEO of the Brose Group. “We must never relax our efforts to deliver a top performance to our customers at all times wherever they are in the world.”
Jürgen Otto accepted the award in Detroit from Tony Brown, Group Vice President Global Purchasing Ford Motor Company. “You are part of the Ford Team and your contribution goes a long way toward helping us achieve our goal – congratulations,” said Brown, whilst extending his thanks to the prize winners.
The Brose plants in Saarwelligen and Sta. Margarida had already received the World Excellence Award in 2006 and 2007. This was the first time the Hallstadt plant had been awarded the honor.
Brose currently supplies the Ford Group with window regulators, door systems, seat adjusters, closures systems, electronics and electric motors from 29 plants in Europe and overseas. These products are destined for use in 47 vehicle models of Ford, Lincoln, Mazda, Mercury and Volvo.
