A worldwide survey has found that British firm, Jaguar Land Rover is the most trustworthy automotive supplier.

The annual survey, conducted by HIS Automotive, surveys 1,000 middle and senior managers who deal with global automotive manufacturers. It takes into account five key aspects of service including:

  • Profit potential
  • Trust
  • Pursuit of excellence
  • Organisation
  • Outlook

Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) was a frontrunner in two of the five categories and its overall score was 603 – an 11.7 percent increase on the previous year.

JLR employs more than 190,000 people in the UK and has been instrumental in balancing the UK economy in recent years. According to the survey, the treatment of supplier intellectual property and responsiveness in considering supplier technology were named as particular strengths in their operations.

Ian Harnett Director of Purchasing said, “Jaguar Land Rover has ambitious plans for growth which will see the introduction of new and refreshed product lines. Our ability to deliver these products to market lies with the ability of our suppliers to deliver quality components in volume. The suppliers’ view is testament to the responsive manner in which we work, and we are proud to have achieved the highest ratings ever in the history of the OEM study on suppliers’ view of Jaguar Land Rover’s long term outlook.”
