This year’s award ceremony, with the theme “Transforming Together. Staying Ahead,” was held on 10 July 2019 in Blaichach, Germany. Bosch has been presenting these awards to honor supplier excellence since 1987, and they are highly regarded in the industry. "We are delighted to receive the Bosch Global Supplier Award as this confirms that our priorities in development, production and realization are appropriate. In addition to suitability for daily use and individualization, long durability of the load carriers is also fundamental," states Dr. Armin Vogel, Executive Vice President Plastics at SSI Schaefer.
A jury decides on the best suppliers worldwide in the following categories: Purchasing of indirect materials, Raw materials and components as well as Purchasing of direct materials by business sector. In a special category, suppliers had furthermore the possibility to submit to the Bosch judges products, processes, and technologies with a high innovation potential.
"From technological expertise to logistical quality and entrepreneurial potential – our award-winners have it all,” says Andreas Reutter, Head of Supply Chain Management at Robert Bosch GmbH and explains: "Today’s suppliers do more than just deliver components. They are also partners in development and innovation supporting Bosch to stay competitive.”
