2019 Country of Origin Cert

Dear Suppliers that Ship to Webasto North America,

We’re excited to introduce a new, easier method for submitting your response to our upcoming 2019 request for Country of Origin Certification. The Webasto Supplier Portal, our key link directly to you, provides a streamlined way to make this chore a breeze!

Here’s how it works:
a. An email notification will be sent to your designated “COO Contact” on or before Sept. 7th, 2018 - (make sure you set one up now on the Portal, with “COO Contact” entered as their Position)
b. This email will provide instructions and a direct link to the COO Form, already pre-filled with all parts you have delivered to WEBASTO Roof Systems Inc. in the applicable period.
c. Simply complete the form and return it on the Portal – done!

For suppliers that are not yet registered on the Portal, now is your chance to register and participate in
this streamlined process.

Please note we are required by law to maintain documentation to substantiate the country of origin for all products and parts thereof. This request is being made in accordance with the Webasto Global General Terms and Conditions of Purchase for Production Material. In case of non-compliance due to missing COO from suppliers, WEBASTO may be subject to fines from the OEM customers, which we will pass on to those suppliers that did not submit their form in time.

So please act now in making sure you have properly designated a contact on the Portal as “COO/Customs Contact”.

Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
Any questions can be directed to your respective Webasto Commodity Buyer or Mr. Bill Bator, the
Customs & Foreign Trade Specialist.

Impact of Fire at Meridian

The fire at Meridian Lightweight Technologies has not only had an impact on several OEMs, but as a consequence will also impact Webasto Roof Systems Inc.’s production over the coming weeks.

We were informed by our customers that the fire at the Michigan plant of Meridian Lightweight Technologies caused them to shorten or shut down production in some of their plants, subsequently impacting their production call offs to Webasto.

Because of this, we ask our suppliers to closely monitor the actual releases through the standard way of communication being used (e.g. EDI, Supply On, e-Mail), and in case of doubts, to please contact the respective Webasto Roof Systems Inc. supply chain contact in the receiving plant immediately.

At this point we do not have the full transparency of the mid-term impact of this incident and will keep you informed regarding any updates on the supply situation as soon as they become available to us.

We appreciate your support and understanding in this challenging situation.
