Schaeffler has received the “Global Quality Award” from Nissan for its outstanding performance as a supplier and service partner. Nissan uses the annual “Global Supplier Award” ceremony to honor above-average results achieved by its strategic suppliers in key areas such as on-schedule delivery, quality, innovation, sustainability, cost structures, social responsibility, and customer satisfaction.
Schaeffler was honored first and foremost for good cooperation and communication, as well as for the production quality of its engine components and dual mass flywheels. Nissan COO Toshiyuki Shiga presented the prestigious award to Matthias Zink, President of Schaeffler Automotive Asia-Pacific, during a ceremony attended by more than 240 suppliers and over 800 guests. „As a global supplier of complex components, it is a great honor for us to receive this award. It is both a demonstration of the close cooperation between our two companies and recognition of the outstanding commitment shown by our teams worldwide. The award is a further incentive for us to continue on this path as a strong partner to Nissan, and to continue to fulfill the Japanese quality standards with above-average performance", explained Matthias Zink at Yokohama's Royal Park Hotel.
Last year, Schaeffler also received the “Global Innovation Award” from Nissan for the engine-side separating clutch developed by LuK for Nissan’s fully-hybrid Fuga vehicle. With the Global Quality Award, Schaeffler has proved once again that operative excellence, quality, and innovative force are indispensible when it comes to fulfilling the extremely high demands of its customers.
