For excellent service, AKWEL’s purchases are managed by a Procurement Department which is global, structured and close to its markets. With our suppliers, we would like to establish stable relationships, in the long term, and within which everyone will be satisfied and find their role.

We are developing an international target panel of responsible and high-performing suppliers, responding to the best market criteria in terms of Quality, Costs, Deadlines, Energy, Environment, Continuous Improvement and Innovation.

This product category brings together electromechanical devices (engines, actuators and mechanisms) used for the control of washer systems or locks, sensors (pressure, temperature), for emissions control systems, cooling or fuel circulation applications, components and electronic control units (ECU, PCBA) and the electric wires making it possible to transmit energy or signals to electrical equipment in the vehicle.

For our mechanisms (hinges, doorstops, pedal mechanisms) or our Fluid Management applications (air intake, cooling), we use several components to construct and enrich our functions: cut and/or stamped metal, turning and cold-heading fixings, collars, springs, etc.

AKWEL is one of the leaders in the USA in the development and manufacture of high-quality rubber mixtures (blending process).
Raw materials (accelerators/plasticizers, paraffin oils, coatings, pigments and other rubbers) are used in different formulae and applications, such as fuel, air and cooling pipes, to develop innovative solutions for our customers.

Purchasing zones: North America, Europe, Asia

The demand for plastic parts is international: injected technical parts made from PA6, PA66 and POM, primarily connectors for our Fuel and Cooling applications, blow-moulded parts made from PE HD, mainly used for filling nozzles and washer tanks, plastic staples made from PA6 and PA66 for engine fixing and sheet metal edging.

Purchasing zone: World

For the requirements of all our Fluid Management applications (cooling, air intake, settling, fuels, additives, washer systems, etc.) and Mechanisms applications (door handles), we process over 22,000 tons of plastic materials (PA66, PA6, PA6.66, PA11 & PA12, POM, ABS, ABS/PC, HDPE, PP, PPEPDM, TPEE) per year.

For our Fuel, Engine, Cooling and Washer System end products and our mechanisms, we use rubber components made from technical materials such as PEDM, AEM, HNBR and FKM for O-rings, membranes, special gaskets, multi-layer or single-layer pipes, EPDM or PU foams and PET or PA casings for mechanical, thermal and crash protection.

Purchasing zone: World

Our Fluids, Air, Fuel and Cooling Management functions use steel, carbon and precision aluminium pipes, cut to length (with or without welding) and hydroformed. Profiles, microtubes and corrugated casings and aluminium profiles enrich our functions in assembly.

The Surface treatment and Decoration category brings together a large number of visible parts and decorative materials, but also non-visible technical elements: thermal treatment, zinc (nickel-zinc/iron-zinc), Geomet, cathodic dip coating, zinc and cathodic dip coating, powder paint and other special treatments meeting our customers’ specific requirements, ABS, ABS/PC and PA chroming, PA paint, etc.
We select suppliers who are experts in their field and capable of supporting us in the various regions of the world where we are based.

Purchasing zones: South America, Europe, Asia

We use metal in particular for our mechanisms (locks, calipers, pedal mechanisms, hinges, etc.) with more than 20,000 tons treated per year including hot or cold laminated, galvanised and high carbon flat steel (coils and strips).

Purchasing zone: Europe

Packaging brings together cardboard boxes, covers, GALIA kits and other specific products (dimension, thickness, cover, colour), GALIA standard wooden pallets or other specific dimensions and instructions such as NIMP15 protection (high-temperature treatment for transport by sea), polyethylene plastic bags and covers for protection of products, labels for identification, thermoformed platforms for special packaging, GALIA range returnable plastic containers, etc.
