This is the second time Recaro has earned an MX Award since the Award’s inception more than 30 years ago

Schwaebisch Hall, Germany, February 9, 2023 –  Recaro Aircraft Seating (Recaro) received a “Customer Orientation” award at the Manufacturing Excellence (MX) Awards. The ceremony took place in Stuttgart, Germany, on Wednesday, February 8, 2023, where members of the Recaro leadership team accepted the award.

“We were honored to accept this ‘Customer Orientation’ MX award on behalf of our hardworking production team, as we pride ourselves on having a high-performing manual manufacturing team,” said Dr. Mark Hiller, CEO of Recaro Aircraft Seating and Recaro Holding. “We are committed to long-term customer loyalty and this award will push us to set new manufacturing benchmarks in our industry.”
