Air tanks: 5-year contract with Daimler

Air tanks: 5-year contract with Daimler

The bulk order is tremendous: It is about a supply proportion of 85% of steel air tanks in the sector truck, bus and special vehicles in Europe. The supply will be carried out from both air tanks sites in Elterlein (Germany) and Hustopeče (Czech Republic). "With this contract we have succeeded in making a big step towards out long-time strategy. We are proud to deliver from now on all LKW-manufacturers in Western Europe with this contract",  Mr. Matthias Thalheim, CEO of Business Unit air tanks, emphasizes.

 

Daimler reconquered

Particularly appreciable is that Daimler has provided Frauenthal Automotive with an award of contract after the end of the cooperation of a small supply proportion at the start of 2014. Among others the intensive customer care was a crucial factor for that step. Frauenthal Automotive made comprehensive investments at both sites in order to extend the total capacities. In Hustopeče they focussed on the compliance with the FIFO-principles as well as the cleanliness in the tank.
