Products and services

Module or function

  • Seats
- The company´s main activity is the manufacture of the 2nd and 3rd row seats for the New C4 Picasso; they are assembled in Syncro and then supplied to the Groupe PSA Vigo factory. The seats can be manufactured with the following features: fold-down, sliding, comfort (backrest angle adjustment) and ”cinema” function (the cushion lifts up against the seat increasing the space in the rear of the vehicle), amongst others.
- There is also a second line of products which consists of subcomponents which are used in both the C4 Picasso and the Peugeot 5008. In this aspect, the company operates as a logistics and adaptation centre prior to the parts being sent to the end client, Johnson Controls in Neuenburg am Rhein (Germany).
Both products have a range of textile coverings meaning that the possible number of finishes is doubled.
Processes and technologies
  • Assembly
The production area has 4 principle manufacturing lines (where the various components which make up a seat are assembled) and one auxiliary line with two assembly posts for the manufacture of the ”Faux Plancher” which is a subcomponent of the row 2 seats. These lines are ”stop and go” as they stop in pre-set positions so that the operator can do their part of the assembly. Once they finish, after a pre-set time, the line moves forward bringing the next seat to the post. The assembly tools have a memory card which stores the data needed for the manufacture of each seat as well as traceability data. These assembly tools also perform the necessary movements to eliminate the need to remove the seats to auxiliary work posts. The factory works on a JIT basis and their work runs in parallel with the production rate of the new vehicle.
