improvement in Europe, and also centralise responsibilities
previously handled by several functions dispersed throughout the

work cross-functionally and quickly develop countermeasures to
vehicle quality issues in Europe," said Russell Crossan, general
manager of quality for Nissan Europe.
Using parts collected directly from dealerships, FQC engineers
will reproduce the concern experienced by customers in the market.
They will then lead teams drawn from development, manufacturing and
suppliers to identify the root causes and develop "right first time"
The centre will have a total staff of 46, as well as guest
engineers from supplier partners who will work with the FQC to
improve parts quality.

Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan, as well as Nissan's two FQC facilities in
the US, in order to enhance Nissan's global standard of quality and
ultimately contribute to higher customer satisfaction.
