SNECI continues to grow in Africa & the Middle East thanks to its local team’s expertise, know-how, and skills in the automotive industry to support OEMs and suppliers in the region.
SNECI MEA’s expert consultants are recognized for their deep knowledge of OEMs’ requirements, including PSA and Renault, and their ability to deploy these requirements in factories. Since the establishment of SNECI MEA in 2016, these experts have supported several suppliers in improving their industrial performance, not only in Africa and the Middle East but also internationally in order to satisfy the complex requirements of OEMs.
“After our first audit of a Tunisian plant requested by a major European OEM, this OEM recommended the Italian supplier Calearo Antenne, a subsidiary of Faucon, to rely on the expertise of SNECI in the implementation of its requirements and preparation for a certification audit,” states Hicham Mesmoudi, Director of SNECI Middle East & Africa.
SNECI MEA will support Calearo Antenne in a rank-up of its production plant located in Tunisia, by conducting regular interventions on-site for 7 to 8 months. Calearo Antenne specializes in the development and production of telecommunication solutions for the automotive industry. Its Tunisian factory is dedicated to the fabrication of antennas and antenna wiring for cars.
“Being based in Morocco allows us to answer OEMs’ and suppliers’ needs in a very reactive way in the entire Middle East & Africa region, the region with the highest growth in the automotive industry. Our global footprint, together with our experts from different backgrounds, allow us to build best practices to rank-up suppliers, while our local experts allow us to understand the needs of local suppliers and adapt our speech so that the supplier get the most added value out of the rank-up, which helps them in their cooperation with OEMs,” adds Stanislas Bailly, Managing Director of SNECI. “After a detailed industrial diagnosis, we define the action plan, finalize it with the management so that the teams feel that they are associated with it, and then support suppliers during the action plan deployment and implementation of new tools, standards, and managerial practices.”
