Brose awards PWO Key Supplier Recognition again in 2018

Oberkirch, May 17, 2018 - The PWO Group has received the Key Supplier Recognition from its customer Brose. This places PWO in an exclusive circle of top suppliers to this renowned global automotive supplier. Only three percent of Brose's suppliers receive this award. The Key Supplier Recognition was explicitly presented to our entire Company and all employees. Nearly all of our locations supply this customer. Seat components and motor housings represent the main products we supply to Brose.

CEO of PWO Dr. Volker Simon is very pleased with this award: "Brose is a major customer with whom we have significantly strengthened our business relationship in recent years. This award marks the second time we have been recognized by Brose as a strategic partner. We thank all our employees for their outstanding commitment to making this possible."

Johannes Obrecht, Member of the Management Board responsible for Production and Materials explains: "The key criteria that played a role in our being awarded this recognition were the excellent supplier evaluations we received over the past twelve months, the high procurement volume and the financial power of the PWO Group. In all three areas, we demonstrated outstanding and lasting performance."
