To meet customer expectations in terms of product and service quality, everyone, employees and suppliers, must deliver total quality.
Valeo Production System (VPS)
Valeo has developed its own production system which implements a set of methods, tools and state-of-the-art production processes within a working environment that promotes quality, performance and employee motivation.
In order to deliver the highest quality products and services while remaining competitive, Valeo has set up a supplier base integrating the most efficient suppliers in terms of innovation, quality, cost, delivery and risk management.
Involvement of Personnel
Operational excellence cannot be achieved without the ongoing commitment of all of the Group's employees. Valeo, therefore, implements processes aimed at creating a safe working environment that fosters employee well-being.
To develop its products and systems, Valeo’s highly qualified Research and Development teams work within an optimal organizational structure that combines professional skills and product expertise with first‑rate methodology and best-in-class project management tools aimed at ensuring product robustness and competitiveness.
