Our Success is founded on three fundamental pillars of “quality, technology and teamwork”
The automotive industry in North America has gone through many challenges and fundamental changes in a few short years and it is obvious that the rate and pace of change are likely to only accelerate. AGS feels that it is well positioned to weather these changes and to be a key player in the North American automotive industry, in light of its dedication to quality, its use of innovative technologies and its commitment to teamwork and collaboration.
In order to succeed, in 2002-2003 AGS’s new ownership embraced three fundamental pillars of “quality, technology and teamwork” for its business.
