Award for high quality
Schaeffler Group in Brazil is awarded "Quality Achievement Performance Certificate" by Toyota
"We are very proud of this award", says Ricardo Reimer, Managing Director of the South American region in the Schaeffler Group. "At the same time, it is a challenge, since it is our aim to continuously exceed the high expectations of our customers in terms of innovation or quality".
The "Quality Achievement Performance Certificate" from Toyota South America ranks among several other awards that are testimony to the recognized excellence of the Schaeffler Group's products and technologies. Last year, for example, the Schaeffler Group received the "Achievement Award" from Toyota's global organization.
Schaeffler makes cars more economical. Engineers from Herzogenaurach, Bühl, Schweinfurt and the other 32 development locations worldwide are continually finding new solutions for reducing CO2 emissions and fuel consumption. The range extends from optimized bearings - whether in wheel carriers, transmissions or engines and the associated ancillary devices - to system solutions, for example, for variable valve control systems or fuelefficient, directshift transmissions. 60 percent of the annual turnover totaling 7.3 billion euros (FY 2009) is achieved by sales of Schaeffler Group products that are matched to the needs of the automotive industry.
