Recaro has hosted its eleventh Global Supplier Conference in Schwaebisch Hall, with a main theme of ‘Moving forward. Together’.
The company also launched an environmental category as part of its supplier awards.
This year’s event attracted more than 160 participants from 70 companies from all over the world, and heard from speakers discussing trends and expectations in the aviation market and how to best respond to these. How to combine being lean, competitive and efficient with innovation, agility and remaining a supplier of choice, was a recurring topic throughout the presentations.
“Sustainability is a key theme in society and in our industry,” said Joachim Ley, executive vice president Supply Chain at Recaro Aircraft Seating. “As Recaro and its suppliers want to be prepared for the future and remain a supplier of choice, we need to keep coming up with innovative, adaptable and flexible solutions to address this and other important issues.”
With the increased focus on and importance of sustainability, Recaro added a brand-new environmental category to its list of supplier awards, with the inaugural winner being Henkel GmbH (Germany). They were lauded for their contribution to sustainable production solutions as well as engagement in promoting these solutions to other companies.
