Two of Novares factories – located in Seseña, Spain and Sainte Marguerite, France – have received the 2018 PSA Group’s Supplier Best Plant Awards. The PSA ceremonies took place in Poissy, France, on September 13 and Vigo, Spain, on September 19.
As a global plastic solutions provider, Novares designs and produces complex components and systems to the automotive industry with a strategy of global proximity to its main customers, such as PSA Group.
Sainte Marguerite, based on a 10,000 m² surface and with a new painting line equipped with the latest technologies and robotics, supplies various molded and painted complex exterior and interior parts such as spoilers, exterior trims and interior car body trims. The plant, which provides parts and services to four PSA factories in France, Poissy, Mulhouse, Sochaux and Rennes, took the award for the quality of parts delivered between 2017 and 2018. The IPB indicator (the number of incidents per trillion delivered parts) was reduced fivefold in the context of a strong increase in the volume of parts delivered.
The award also recognizes the factory’s irreproachable service record to PSA over four years, with high volumes of different parts delivered systematically on time.
Seseña, based on more than a 11,000 m² surface and newly equipped with two automatic assembly lines and a blow molding line, is specialized in car interior trims and engine components. PSA Group is a Novares Seseña customer for over 20 years. This plant which supplies parts for Cactus and Picasso cars to PSA factories in Vigo and Madrid, received the award for continuously improved IPB indicator, coupled with impeccably managed new product start-ups for the customer.
“Novares is honored to receive the PSA Supplier Best Plant Awards for two of its plants. It is a recognition of the constantly fine-tuning of our processes together with the ongoing efforts of our teams in order to meet the key requirements of our customers” declares Pierre Boulet, Novares CEO.
