BOGE Elastmetall GmbH has qualified for the FAST initiative ("Future Automotive Supply Tracks" initiative) of the Volkswagen Group (VW) in the field of pedal system technology, making it one of the 64 selected strategic partners of the FAST initiative worldwide. Overall, the VW Group has over 40,000 companies in its supplier network. The main reason for this nomination was the extensive development expertise in the field of fiber-reinforced lightweight components using the example of the plastic brake pedal, the high level of competence in the field of process automation and the global presence of the BOGE Group.

The objective of the FAST initiative of the Volkswagen Group is to jointly implement technical innovations even faster than before and to realize vehicle projects even more efficiently and effectively worldwide. The companies qualified for FAST were identified by VW in a systematic selection process based on numerous qualification meetings taking into account their innovative strength, strategic orientation and cooperation capability. At the same time, these companies are characterized by outstanding performance in their respective field of competence. They will be involved in the development of new vehicles sooner than before and thus will be able to incorporate own ideas during the pre-series development of new vehicles. At the same time, as part of globalization strategies, the production networks between Volkswagen and its partners are being more closely aligned in order to create and optimally exploit synergies.
