Durr and Ford Sign Agreement



Published December 4, 2008
Dürr and Ford sign agreement
Dürr and automaker Ford are further expanding their collaboration in the area of painting systems. For that purpose, the two companies signed a framework agreement giving Dürr the status of an aligned business framework (ABF) partner worldwide. This means that Dürr is the first supplier Ford will approach for projects in the field of painting systems, and the two companies will jointly develop technical solutions.
Dürr is currently building paint shops for Ford in India and Romania and a final assembly line in St. Petersburg. Ford enters into aligned business frameworks agreements only with select key partners that are especially efficient and competitive in respect to technology and global presence. The agreements spell out business practices designed to increase future collaboration, including phased-in up-front payment of engineering and deve-lopment costs, extended sourcing and data transparency. Worldwide, the automaker works together with currently more than 65 ABF partners.
According to Ralf Dieter, CEO of Dürr AG, “The framework agreement is a milestone in our relationship with Ford as it opens up additional, global business opportunities for Dürr.”
