Wulf Gaertner Autoparts has its own production plants where chassis and steering parts as well as rubber-metal parts are manufactured. One of the own production plants is SIO Automotive. SIO Automotive was founded in 1991 and produces chassis and steering parts. Since 2007, the company has been a 100% subsidiary of Wulf Gaertner Autoparts AG. The cooperation led to several growth and investment steps within the production facility: most of the production equipment was replaced by new ones and a state-of-the-art testing laboratory was created. A rapidly growing company and new production processes and technologies led to the demand for additional space. A second production hall and an administration building were built on the green space next to the existing factory. To ensure high quality standards during the manufacturing process, the production facilities and production partners are monitored throughout the development and production process and visited and audited at regular intervals by quality engineers.
SIO Automotive is certified according to IATF 16949, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001, ISO 10002 and ISO 9001 and continuously invests in technology and quality while protecting the environment. Special attention to personnel safety is a top priority at SIO Automotive. In addition, creating a healthy and sustainable supply chain in Turkey or abroad for the raw materials and other components needed for production is another important priority to ensure the highest quality and on-time delivery.
The Turkish Ministry of Industry and Technology has recognised the continuous efforts and determination regarding new technologies and processes, and SIO Automotive was awarded the status of a research and development centre at the end of 2017. New innovative products and technologies are now being developed by SIO's engineers to strengthen their position in the market.
