Toyota and AZL cooperate
Just last year, the AZL announced the expansion of their strategic partnership with the automotive manufacturer Toyota. Representatives of the AZL Aachen GmbH and Toyota Motor Europe NV / SA have signed a contract for a 5-year partnership with immediate effect. The focus of this cooperation lies in particular on the identification and development of production systems and quality assurance methods necessary for realizing large series production of lightweight automotive components. The continuous optimization of automated production processes in automotive manufacturing is of highest importance, particularly at very high volumes, as in the case of the global market leader Toyota, who has sold almost 10 million vehicles in 2013.
