FCA QUALITAS AWARD GOES TO THE MOSOLF GROUP
Horst Mosolf GmbH & Co. KG has received an award from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) for the consistent quality of its services. The automotive system service provider, which is one of the leading companies in this field in Europe, received the Qualitas Award 2014 in the supply chain/logistics supplier category last December. The prize was presented in 18 categories to winners from more than 1,000 suppliers in the EMEA region.
In 2014, the prize-winning ceremony once again took place in the Centro Congressi Lingotto in Turin. The Qualitas Award was presented to Dr. Jörg Mosolf by Scott Garberding, Head of Group Purchasing FCA, Alfredo Altavilla, FCA Chief Operative Officer EMEA, and Luc Billiet, Vice President Supply Chain FCA.
“It’s a special honour to receive this kind of award from a customer. It shows that we can offer credible services to companies and meet the high standards that we place on ourselves and those of our customers. We’ll also do all in our power in future to meet the quality standards required by FCA and exceed them,” said Dr. Jörg Mosolf, CEO of the Mosolf Group. FCA’s statement giving its reason for the award said that the prize is particularly presented to new, innovative and flexible multi-modal concepts, which save natural resources to the greatest possible degree.
Mosolf has been working for the Italian automobile manufacturer for several decades. Its operations not only include providing transport and logistics services across Europe, but also warehouse, technical and workshop services like initial checks on vehicles when they are handed over or inserting additional equipment. Vehicles are also prepared for delivery and the preservation materials are removed from new vehicles. Among other things, the system service provider Mosolf took over what was then FCA’s central delivery warehouse in Kippenheim, Baden-Württemberg, in 1994, where it had already been managing the technical centre for ten years.
Transporting vehicles from the FCA production site in Tychy in Poland (near Katowice) to the Grimaldi Terminal AET Antwerp using specially arranged block trains is also a firm part of the cooperation arrangement – in addition to the pioneer work that Mosolf/MAR has performed in establishing export traffic by rail from Kragujevac in Serbia to the Port of Bar in Montengro.
“I’m convinced that our all-round approach forms the basis for the high level of satisfaction in our customers like FCA. Our concept involves combining cost-effectiveness and quality with sustainability and offering services packages for all matters related to automobiles from one source,” said Dr. Mosolf.
