Quality is a key driver in Westfalia-Automotive’s success. All Westfalia-Automotive products comply with stringent European Regulations and are precision engineered by highly skilled and dedicated employees in state of the art production facilities.
3D COMPUTER AIDED DESIGN
All Westfalia-Automotive towbars are designed using the latest 3D Computer Aided Design. This gives great flexibility during the design process. Once a prototype has been developed, it is then tested to the European Type Approval requirements of Directive 94/20EC.
Testing is carried out in Westfalia-Automotives own laboratories using servo hydraulic test rigs. In addition to 94/20EC testing, Westfalia-Automotive also have state of the art 3-Dimensional test rigs that allow us to test to OEM (Original Equipment Manufacture) standards. This highest level of testing is not normally associated with aftermarket products. Westfalia-Automotive’s quality management systems include ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and TS 16949.
Westfalia-Automotive’s state of the art Innovation Centre draws together all of the design and pre-production skills under one roof, providing a creative and innovative working environment. The centre, which provides over 3500m2 of space across two levels, has been specifically designed to facilitate maximum and efficient communication between seven different project teams and to encourage interaction of ideas and innovative thought. The Innovation Centre is home to nearly 100 employees.
Through the Innovation Centre, links have been developed with universities to create graduate training programmes that ensure high calibre recruits are available to strengthen our teams. Westfalia-Automotive strongly believes that investment is not just for today but also for the future.
