STARCO Poland passes Husqvarna audit with flying colours
Following the recent decision by Swedish manufacturer Husqvarna to move all manufacturing operations to Poland, the STARCO company in Poland has assumed responsibility for the supply of complete wheel assemblies and aftermarket spare parts for Husqvarna lawn tractors.
Although STARCO has been a tried and trusted supplier of wheels and tyres to Husqvarna for many years, the move to Poland implied that the STARCO operation there would have to be audited by Husqvarna to ensure compliance with the company’s strict requirements for quality assurance, logistics and management and support services.
This process, undertaken by Husqvarna and managed by according to the STARCO LEAN programme that is currently being applied in all STARCO entities, was completed in January, with the STARCO company in Mielec, Poland passing the audit with flying colours.
STARCO supplies steel wheels (manufactured by STARCO in Beli Manastir, Croatia) and plastic wheels (manufactured by STARCO DML in the UK) to Husqvarna. All tyres supplied to Husqvarna are designed with a special configuration and tread pattern by STARCO Engineering in the UK, in close cooperation with Husqvarna. It is the STARCO operation in Poland that coordinates and supports Husqvarna, and the products are assembled in Poland, ready for delivery to the Husqvarna factory.
Once again, a STARCO entity has won the approval and commendation of a valued and discerning original equipment manufacturer.
