Johannes has a wealth of experience in business development and sales, as well as quality management and plant management roles.

Johannes said: “Having had supplier and manufacturing experience provides me with a great insight into how best to support our clients and support them to maintain quality standards throughout the manufacturing process.”

Among the services offered include component inspection and rectification, while G&P can also provide interim experts such as quality managers and resident engineers.

Meanwhile, other services supplied include quality audits, engineering services, final vehicle acceptance, supplier management and launch readiness.
