“We make high demands of our suppliers because they contribute to our success with our customers. Treating each other respectfully as equals is a very important factor in this regard for us,” declared Ralph Heuwing, Dürr AG’s CFO, who is responsible for procurement on the Board of Management. “As a growth-focused company, we need reliable partners who will be at our side in our global operations. The Dürr Supplier Award is our way of underlining our relationship with strategically important suppliers and thanking them for the quality of their collaboration with us.”
The Dürr Supplier Award is presented in the categories “Innovation & Technology”, “Global Partner” and “Quality & Reliability”, with the 32 best suppliers being nominated. Several of them had previously also been nominated when the awards were first made back in 2014.
