As a service provider for all participants in the automotive value chain, Formel D UK is continuing to intensify its business relations and its expansion course, partly through stronger involvement in British automobile associations. The combination of detailed know-how, a comprehensive range of services based on flexible, demand-oriented concepts and highly qualified employees makes Formel D a sought-after partner for manufacturers and suppliers in the UK.
Formel D mainly implements projects from the field of proactive and reactive quality management in the UK. Here the team supports its customers, from supplier development and the supervision of series to work on finished vehicles and the inspection of supplier parts. In addition, Formel D UK is in charge of a number of important tasks as part of launch management for vehicle models.
Successful projects include the worldwide preparation of show and press vehicles for a British manufacturer of luxury cars and support for a globally active premium manufacturer in launching a sporty small car. The successful realisation of this project established Formel D as a launch and rework partner, so that the Group now maintains an office of its own on the customer’s premises. “In the course of our activities, we have effectively adapted to the circumstances prevailing on the local market,” says Kathrin Hüeppe (Technical Director Formel D UK). In particular the international orientation and the global networking of the company have enabled the cross-national transfer of knowledge necessary for the concentration of expertise.
The company relies on a proven well-balanced mixture of local and international competence. In addition to its own requirements, Formel D takes the high demands and quality standards of the automotive and supply industry into account when putting its teams together. The objective of this is to convince customers by offering them maximum quality, and that is also true for the future.
