Premium Supplier 2015
Nufringen, Nov. 25, 2015
Once again premium
Automotive and industry suppliers Schaeffler and Continental honour Ensinger
For the third time in a row, automotive industry suppliers Schaeffler and Continental have awarded Ensinger’s injection moulding division the honour of “premium supplier”. A total of 37 international companies were given this status. For the suppliers, inclusion in the “premium supplier circle” has the advantage that they become involved at an early stage in product development projects.
The selection criteria of the Schaeffler-Continental purchasing cooperation arrangement include not only fully developed quality management but also good logistics performance with a global and regional presence. As products become more and more complex, the requirements placed on suppliers increase, especially since development times shorten. “Current challenges in the areas of safety, environment and information technology can only be solved by means of innovative products and systems”, emphasises Günter Fella, Purchasing Manager at Continental Automotive. “Active support from our suppliers in the relevant development process is of crucial importance here.”
Reimar Olderog, head of the injection moulding division, thanked the employees at the Rottenburg-Ergenzingen site. “Being awarded the honour of premium supplier a third time in a row shows that our collective efforts from the last few years, including those to keep on improving, have been worth it.”
The Ensinger groupis engaged in the development, manufacture and sale of compounds, semi-finished materials, profiles and technical parts made of engineering and high performance plastics through extrusion, machining and injection moulding. With a total of 2,200 employees at 28 locations, the family-owned enterprise is represented worldwide in all major industrial regions with manufacturing facilities or sales offices.
