Balzers, 3 September 2019 – Oerlikon Balzers, a world-leading supplier of surface solutions for the metal and plastics processing industry, has received a “ZERO defects certificate” from Bosch in recognition of supplying components coatings of the highest quality in 2018. By delivering products with no defects, Oerlikon Balzers made a substantial contribution to the continuous improvement in quality for the world-leading automotive supplier.
Oerlikon Balzers Brazil was honoured by Robert Bosch Ltda. for its outstanding commitment as a quality supplier of component coatings for the automotive industry. The coatings, which are applied to pistons used in diesel injection pumps for HGV engines, reduce wear between the piston and the pump body, thus extending the component’s service life and increasing product reliability. The production centre in São José dos Pinhais is currently coating a number of components for various configurations of Bosch pumps.
Luciano M. Silva, Oerlikon Balzers Director of Sales & Operations Brazil and Argentina said: "We are absolutely delighted to be recognised by Bosch as a top supplier with a zero-defect certificate. I would like to congratulate all our employees, partners and quality suppliers who continue to contribute to our company's success, especially the entire staff at our customer centre in São José dos Pinhais, who show great commitment every day to meet Bosch’s high expectations. Delivering the best products to our customers and ensuring the safety of our employees and of our environment is very important to us, and this award proves our infinite passion for superior surface solutions."
