TRIGO GROUP ANNOUNCES NEW PARTNERSHIP WITH PSA GROUP, FRENCH AUTOMOTIVE MANUFACTURER

November 28, 2016, Paris, FR – TRIGO has been awarded a strategic contract by PSA Group to provide extensive quality services in France for the upcoming years.

The partnership between TRIGO and PSA Group started two decades ago and has been developed in many locations worldwide where PSA Group operates. As a result of a proposal opportunity launched in France in 2016, TRIGO became the trusted quality service provider at 13 French PSA manufacturing sites.

TRIGO’s innovative quality solutions play a significant role in supporting the automotive manufacturer’s operations by offering a complete quality service portfolio that covers the entire OEM manufacturing process. Some of the services TRIGO provides include Containment and Sorting, Vehicle Launch Support, In-Process and Final Vehicle Inspection, Software Update, Non-Conformity Analysis, Supplier Training and Auditing, and more.

TRIGO’s leading position in providing technical OEM services such as Mechanical Rework, Electronic Diagnosis Rework, Bare Sheet and Painted Car Body Repair benefited its position to be chosen as a strategic quality partner by the French manufacturer.

In addition, the TRIGO Academy offering extensive quality training and premium technical expertise in inspection and technical repair to OEM and Tier-1 customers as well as TRIGO internal associates, also contributed to this successful partnership with PSA Group.

"We are very proud to strengthen further our partnership with PSA Group and to become the trusted quality services provider in France”, says Julien Laforets, Managing Director of TRIGO France. “This is a clear market recognition of TRIGO’s successful strategic development and unique market positioning in France and worldwide.”
