The reason why our customers choose Scania is the emphasis they place on quality, an area in which Scania traditionally sets the standard among heavy vehicle manufacturers. To ensure that our products will maintain a high, uniform quality, we have standardised and documented our work process. This standardised and documented way of work forms the basis for a “normal situation”. By challenging the “normal situation”, we can identify waste and work with continuous improvements.

We see our suppliers as an integrated part of our manufacturing operation. That means that we have the same continuous improvements demands on our suppliers as on our own production units.
