Continental and Schaeffler, which operate an international corporate alliance employing a total of over 300,000 staff, are the heavyweights of the global automotive supply industry. To be ready to meet future challenges like those posed by self-driving and electric vehicles, they are working hard to achieve even closer collaboration with their own suppliers, which number more than 8,000. Continental and Schaeffler have identified 1,200 of these as strategically important. In addition, every two years 32 of them are singled out for their exceptional quality and assigned to a “Premium Supplier Circle”, which constitutes an especially great honour. SCHEUERMANN + HEILIG have now been selected for the second time (the first was in 2015), thus confirming that this company based in the Hainstadt borough of Buchen, Germany is technologically fit for the future. The forming specialist has met the demanding criteria for joining and remaining in this elite group by demonstrating a high level of quality, reliability and global competitiveness in an industry that is characterised by steadily increasing expectations.
The certificate for excellent performance in the stamping category was presented to Silke Heilig of SCHEUERMANN + HEILIG’s management board and sales head Thomas Böhm in a ceremony held in Frankfurt. This photograph shows them together with the purchasing executives of Continental und Schaeffler.
