TI Automotive hosts Asia-Pacific Supplier Day in Shanghai
On February 24, 2016, TI Automotive hosted over 100 Asian-based suppliers for a conference in Shanghai, China. This is the fourth supplier day held in the region.
The half-day event provided our Asian-based suppliers with important information about the company, including the new ownership structure, technology plans well aligned with industry mega-trends, quality expectations, legal reminders, conflict mineral compliance, and supplier scorecards.
Bill Kozyra, Chairman, CEO and President, TI Automotive, provided a warm welcome and presented four suppliers with awards for outstanding contributions. He communicated that our supplier performance is absolutely critical for TI Automotive’s success.
James Bao, China FCS Managing Director, highlighted TI Automotive’s new ownership, strong performance and bright future.
“We’ve been hosting Supplier Days, alternating among regions, since 2011, as a way to communicate and educate our suppliers regarding our key initiatives and expectations”, said Drew Sheffield, Global Corporate & FCS Purchasing Director. “These cross-functional events provide networking, highlight the value of doing business with TI Automotive, and allow us to share our 2016 priorities; this year we emphasized the need to follow robust quality processes, such as the Safety/Regulatory – or “S/R” Process – to exceed heightened customer quality expectations in the wake of the major recalls in our industry.”
