FPK receives the JLR Q award from Jaguar Land Rover

The 15th of May 2015, FPK Lightweight Technologies, a branch of Batz Group, has received the JLR Q quality award from the English automobile manufacturer Jaguar Land Rover. This award is the result of the excellent job that the whole team has done producing and delivering structural parts called “secondary bulkheads” since 2012 to JLR.

The secondary bulkhead is placed in the engine area isolating the passenger’s cabin acoustically and thermally from the engine. Therefore these parts made of reinforced polymers contribute to improve the comfort and reduce CO2 emissions.

The parts produced in FPK are placed in Range Rover, Range Rover Sport and Jaguar XE.

Jaguar Land Rover is currently one of FPK main customers. The production plant is located in Zamudio since 1993.

The turnover with JLR has exponentially increased during last years, reaching an increase of 53% in 2014. Moreover, the growth is expected to continue during next years, extending the parts to other Jaguar and Land Rover models.  The purpose is to keep increasing with new structural and aerodynamic parts, or also with automotive systems produced in the headquarters of Batz in Igorre.

All of this contribute that Batz Group reaches 260M€ turnover in 2018, employing 1800 people of which 900 in the Basque country.
