METEOR has been honored with the Bosch Global Supplier Award from Robert Bosch GmbH.
METEOR received the award in the electromechanics category.
In all, Bosch has given awards to 44 suppliers from eleven countries on 35,000 companies. This marks the fifteenth time the supplier of technology and services has honored outstanding performance in the manufacture and supply of products or services – notably in the areas of quality, costs, innovation, and logistics. Bosch presented the coveted awards before an audience of some 100 representatives of the supply industry. The theme of this year's award ceremony was “Partners in success.”
Bosch's suppliers have long been more than mere deliverers of parts and components: they are also partners in development and innovation who help Bosch stay competitive. Currently, the Bosch Group's purchasing and logistics volume amounts to some 60 percent of its total sales. Most of the purchases are of electronic and mechanical components, but Bosch also buys resale goods, software, services, capital goods, and operating equipment.
Quotes from the Bosch board of management:
Dr. Volkmar Denner, chairman of the Bosch board of management:
“In the connected world, partnerships are becoming more and more important. Hierarchical value chains are turning into value-added networks. With our open platform technologies, we are in an ideal position to seize the opportunities offered by digitalization in our partner networks; for example, exchanging Industry 4.0 data using the Production Performance Management Protocol.”
Prof. Dr. Stefan Asenkerschbaumer, deputy chairman of the Bosch board of management and in charge of purchasing and logistics:
“Our goal is to achieve supply chain excellence, which requires maintaining the highest quality standards. In the future, we must react even more quickly and flexibly to the demands of the market and of our customers. This will work only when all partners are intelligently connected with one another, working closely together with the aid of automated processes.”
Dr. Karl Nowak, president of the Bosch corporate sector for purchasing and logistics:
“Bosch's success is based in no small part on competitiveness, innovative strength, and agility – qualities we can achieve only with fruitful international partnerships.”
