Already thinking about tomorrow today
Environmental protection and sustainability – these are central challenges for the global automotive industry. At Kiekert, too, the development of environmentally compatible and energy-efficient solutions is an important part of our global efficiency strategy. Part of that is the ongoing optimization of product weight. In recent years, we have successfully reduced the weight of our latches by more than 50 percent.
We are convinced that responsible actions and corporate success go hand-in-hand, which is why our internal processes are also defined by environmental protection and sustainability. And these efforts pay off. Since 2014, Kiekert Prelouc has been using the waste heat from its compressors for heat recovery, Kiekert Puebla was named “Social Responsibility Company 2015” and, in 2016, Kiekert Heiligenhaus received the “Energy Innovation Award” in the special category “Successfully Implemented Energy Management System”.
Brand-new projects are also being implemented at our plants. Kiekert Puebla has been using an ecological ventilation system in its production facility since 2017. It filters the air using rain water, making it exceptionally energy- and cost-efficient.
