Supplier Quality Engineering (SQE)

Würth is committed to continuous improvement both internally and externally, which is why we invested in our Supplier Quality Engineering (SQE) division. This group works closely with our purchasing departments, engineers and, most importantly, our suppliers to proactively improve the quality of the components we procure.
