A leading aftermarket automotive company for power steering reservoir assembly.
A leading aftermarket automotive company was looking to enter the OE market for power steering reservoir assembly. The company’s challenge with this segment was lack of knowledge, experience, and understanding of stringent OE quality requirements and processes for APQP and PPAP.
The company needed third-party support to properly execute the OEM requirements and simultaneously train their internal manufacturing plant quality resources and Tier 2 supply chain on AIAG and customer specific requirements for future programs and businesses. The expense and time demand to bring two suppliers up to speed and prepare them for future business endeavors was overwhelming.
