ITERA SOLUCIONES DE INGENIERIA announces the successful launch of the New Ford Kuga 2020 and wants to congratulate the three Itera teams which have participated in achieving such a milestone.
The company works as an engineering services supplier for Ford Motor Company within Valencia Assembly Plant and it looks after body content through three engineering teams: body exterior, and body interior, which are part of the Permanent Launch Team, and a third team working for Vehicle Operations.
1 – Vehicle Operations Team
Currently, up to five different Ford models are built in Valencia: S-Max, Galaxy, Mondeo, Transit Connect and Kuga, being the later the one with the higher production figures. It is the most important model for the plant, and the New Kuga launch has been the biggest one in many years.
2 – Permanent Launch Team – Body Interior
With a very tight timing, a completely new platform and the introduction of hybrid variants along with petrol and diesel engines, it has been a real challenge for all the teams involved in the project, and they have succeeded.
3 – Permanent Launch Team – Body Exterior
Ensuring the right part pedigree, helping suppliers send parts on time for every launch phase, raising containment actions for design issues making sure the modifications are in time and applied according to design intention, and finally raising permanent design changes are just some of the tasks that these teams perform on a daily basis.
Following the launch of the new Kuga, more programs will be handled by the Permanent Launch Team in 2020, including additional variants of Kuga, Transit and S-Max.
