The facilities are TRW Automotive (Slovakia) s.r.o. in Nove Mesto, Slovakia, where electrically powered steering motors and belt drive steering systems are produced, and TRW Automotive GmbH in Gelsenkirchen, Germany, that manufactures electrically powered hydraulic steering systems and hydraulic rack and pinion steering gears.

Maciej Gwozdz, TRW vice president, operations, European Steering, said: "We are pleased that two of our European steering facilities have earned this prestigious quality award and are regarded by Volvo Cars as valued partners and among the best suppliers in the business.
