The eighth Global Supplier Conference at Recaro Poland

In the context of the 10th anniversary of the Recaro plant in Poland, the company organized its eighth Global Supplier Conference with over 150 participants from around the world. Recaro Aircraft Seating has been consistently implementing its Lean Strategy for many years and honored four of its top suppliers with its Supplier Awards.

On July 7, 2016, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the company's plant in Swiebodzin, Recaro Aircraft Seating welcomed over 150 guests to its eighth Global Supplier Conference.

“For many years, together with our suppliers, we have been implementing our Lean Strategy which has made a significant contribution to our company's success,” says Dr. Mark Hiller, Chief Executive Officer and Shareholder at Recaro Aircraft Seating. “This not only enables us to improve our value chain, but to also develop state-of-the-art, long-term relationships with our suppliers which ensure a high degree of adaptability and quality.”

As a premium provider of aircraft seats, the company from Schwaebisch Hall enjoys close partnerships with its suppliers that reflect Recaro's high standards in all areas of activity. The reduction of delivery times, the ongoing improvement of costs management, as well as ensuring consistently high quality in parts manufacturing and materials sourcing call for a high degree of discipline on the part of all partners.

“With a global Recaro network of our own production sites and with our very positive supplier relationships, we are currently achieving an outstanding level of cost-effectiveness in Swiebodzin - one that meets our high expectations and guarantees production security,” explains Joachim Ley, Executive Vice President Supply Chain, Recaro Aircraft Seating.

Awards for the top four suppliers

At the eighth Global Supplier Conference, Recaro Aircraft Seating honored four companies with the Recaro Supplier Awards. The Reinhard Bretthauer company, as a specialist in plastics engineering, was given the award in the “Production Material” category for its outstanding performance in the areas of production, quality assurance and delivery times. The Panorama Catering company received an award in the “Non-Production Material” category for its consistently positive performance and high standards as long-term Recaro catering partner.

As well, Shenzhen Jinming Aerospace Technology Co. Ltd. received a Supplier Award for its one-hundred-percent on-time delivery, as did the Alu Menziken Euromotive company from Switzerland for its capacity expansion and exemplary collaboration with Recaro.

“Ingenious Design”, growth and process optimization

Recaro Aircraft Seating has achieved exceptional process security and impressive manufacturing quality with its global network of suppliers and international production sites in Poland, the U.S. and China. The objective was to manufacture all models in Recaro's product portfolio at every production site to avoid any potential production bottlenecks.

“We can only successfully implement our growth strategy for the next years and meet the high demand for our products worldwide with a lean company, optimized processes and short production cycles. We are all the more delighted to have our four top suppliers as partners who are ideally positioned to meet these evolving requirements – in view of our successfully taking on future challenges together,” explains Dr. Mark Hiller during the get-together with decision-makers on the occasion of the eighth Recaro Global Supplier Conference and the plant's tenth anniversary in Poland.
