Tata Steel has secured Volvo Cars’ Quality Excellence (VQE) award at a ceremony to mark the 60-year anniversary of cooperation between the companies.

The VQE award recognises suppliers who achieve excellence in areas such as capable manufacturing and quality processes, continuous improvement and customer endorsement. Tata Steel fulfilled all the relevant criteria and is the first steel producer to obtain the prize.

Volvo Cars sources mainly galvanized steel plates for exterior parts of cars including bonnets, doors and trunk lids. Among the products delivered by Tata Steel are MagiZinc Auto, a hot-dip zinc coating offering corrosion protection and DP800 HyperForm, a ductile, high-strength steel allowing light-weighting of complex, structural components.

“It’s the first time Volvo Cars has given this award to a steel supplier,” said Tata Steel global account manager, Johan Casparsson. “This is recognition of our significant efforts to meet demanding requirements in production, quality control, continuous improvement and levels of service at all stages.

“It is crucial for us to consistently focus on the high quality of our steel, alongside our technical support. That is our highest priority.”
