At Novelis, we work hard to ensure our customers are satisfied not only with the high quality of our aluminum, but also the high quality of our customer service. With that in mind, we are proud to receive the FAW-Volkswagen (FAW-VW) Excellent Supplier Award for the second consecutive year in 2015.
In a highly competitive field, Novelis was one of only 10 suppliers chosen from a pool of more than 500 and was the only flat-rolled aluminum supplier – a recognition of the important role we have played in helping FAW-VW with the development of aluminum parts for their Audi cars in China.
Novelis has strategically partnered with FAW-VW in China since 2012. While our Changzhou plant was ramping up, Novelis also supplied FAW-VW from our European operations. After two years of partnership, in 2014, the automaker recognized Novelis China with its Good Supplier Nomination, as well as the Excellent Supplier Award. The 2015 Excellent Supplier Award won by Novelis reiterates the meaningful collaboration between our company and FAW-VW in supporting lightweight car production in China.
I know my team, and the rest of our colleagues at Novelis, are honored by this recognition and we will continue to pursue the highest level of quality and excellence in all of our partnerships, now and in the future.
