Resident Engineering Services,

When It’s Needed?

In Automotive sector as a part of quality management, many times OEMs or T1suppliers need a “Third Quality Eye “at their supplier or customer end, to coordinate quality issues on day to day basis. Catalydd has a strong foothold in assisting customers through its “resident engineer automotive” (REA) services, by representing either at customer end or supplier end.

This services is also needed by many overseas manufacturers who has customer base in India, but they do not have presence in India, Catalydd in that case represents them in India, not only as a resident engineer automotive, but also in other forms like Sales or Service Resident Engineer.

This comes very handy for our customers to appoint us at their customer or supplier end, as they get real time information and control through our engineers. These resident engineers not only represent our customers, but also contribute a lot in terms of improving the quality of supply chain.
