Our best suppliers for Europe

“Welcome to our Supplier of the Year Ceremony 2015 in Ovar!“, welcomed Klaus Lawory, Director Corporate Purchasing, the international guests in Portugal last Wednesday and led through the framework program.

For also in this year KIRCHHOFF Automotive awarded its best suppliers of the previous year. But still this awarding ceremony was special: For the first time the purchasing, quality and logistics departments elected the best suppliers for the whole of Europe. Previously the awards took place on a national basis.

Also Portugal’s Managing Director Administration, Armindo Jales, welcomed as a host the participants from all European KIRCHHOFF Automotive plants as well as Corporate employees from the departments logistics and quality also in the name of Paul van Rooij, Managing Director Operations, in Ovar.

But this evening was not only about KIRCHHOFF Automotive but about our best suppliers, as Michael Rank, EVP Global Purchasing, highlighted in his speech. After a short company presentation by Klaus Lawory and Tomasz Marczuk, Leader Supplier Development Engineer, they were able to introduce themselves in detail: TATA Steel Service and Bimex-Böllhoff, those are the two companies who are our best suppliers in Europe. After awarding the prize to the representatives of both companies everyone had the chance for lively exchange during dinner.

We congratulate the companies TATA Steel Service Center Gelsenkirchen GmbH for the product sector steel and the Polish company Bimex-Böllhoff Sp. z o.o. for the product sector bought in parts. We are looking forward to an ongoing excellent cooperation!
