PWO is awarded preferred supplier status once again by the Bosch Group

Oberkirch, July 1, 2015 - Progress-Werk Oberkirch AG has been awarded the coveted Preferred Supplier status for the second time in just a short period by its customer Bosch. This award recognizes PWO's long-standing position as a top supplier of the globally operating company. Under the Preferred Supplier concept, Robert Bosch GmbH evaluates the performance of its suppliers on a continuous basis using predetermined criteria for the respective material segments. PWO was awarded for its outstanding achievement in the categories of stamped, deep-drawn, and curved components.

Both companies share a partnership that spans decades. PWO delivers highly complex metal components such as deep-drawn electric motor housings - a segment in which PWO is the global leader and possesses the fastest production process in the world. Annually, PWO produces over 120 million units of these components used for automotive applications.

"The repeated receipt of this award is the result of the extraordinary performance of our entire staff. We would like to thank them for this wholeheartedly. We would also like to thank all of those involved at Bosch. We are proud to be one of the best and see this award as a further incentive to continue to prove ourselves through our high performance capabilities", stated Dr. Volker Simon, Speaker of the Management Board.
