Dürr Supplier Award 2014
For the first time Dürr has honored its best suppliers with the Dürr Supplier Awards. The Dürr Supplier Awards were offered in three categories: “Global Partner”, “Quality & Reliability”, and “Innovation & Technology”, with the 32 best suppliers being nominated. The Dürr Supplier Awards will be presented in future every two years as part of the Open House.
In the “Global Partner” category the prize went to Sova Liberec s.r.o. from the Czech Republic. This system supplier of pipework is a reliable partner for engineering, delivery and installation on many of Dürr’s construction sites worldwide.
Nabtesco Precision Europe GmbH took the award for “Quality & Reliability”. This European subsidiary of the Japanese company supplies transmissions for painting robots. It won because of its excellent quality and fast response times even during the trading problems in the aftermath of the reactor disaster in Fukushima.
Sensitec GmbH from Germany won the award for “Innovation & Technology”. This supplier of measurement technology systems for balancing machines supplies Dürr with innovative, highly precise sensors.
The nominations of suppliers were made by the Global Sourcing Board (GSB) in coordination with different Dürr departments. A maximum of 32 suppliers could be nominated.
