PWO receives an award from its customer Bosch

Oberkirch, March 3, 2015 - For the fourth consecutive time, Progress-Werk Oberkirch AG has received the coveted title of "Preferred Supplier of the Bosch Group".

Robert Bosch GmbH awards this title to suppliers who meet strict criteria and demanding qualifications. PWO was recognized for its outstanding achievement in stamped, deep-drawn, and curved components.

We supply Bosch with various highly complex metal components such as deep-drawn electric motor housings. We have developed the fastest production process worldwide in this area. Every year, we produce over 120 million of these components. The series production of a new generation of housings using lightweight construction has been successfully ramped-up in Germany during the past fiscal year. We have also been supplying Bosch with electric motor housings in Mexico and China for the past several years.

Dr. Volker Simon, Speaker of the Management Board of Progress-Werk Oberkirch AG, thanks Bosch for this further display of confidence: "The Preferred Supplier Award is an award and an incentive at the same time. We have maintained a business relationship with Bosch for decades, which has only been possible through the consistent high commitment of our entire staff. We would like to thank all of our employees for their tremendous motivation and their extraordinary dedication, without which this success would not be possible."
