GKN Sinter Metals has been named as a Premium Supplier by Schaeffler and Continental, who have been cooperating in their purchasing since the beginning of 2009.
The businesses, which supply automotive manufacturers and the industrial sector, recently held their second joint Premium Supplier Day. Only 31 out of more than 1,200 strategic suppliers met the criteria for the highest recognition. These companies have qualified as Premium Suppliers due to their outstanding capabilities to offer innovations, achieve outstanding Quality and Delivery performance and to ensure excellent competitiveness on a global basis.
The recognition was handed out by Schaeffler to representatives of the GKN Sinter Metals management team in Bruneck, Italy, in March.
Peter Mölgg, President European & Asia Pacific Operations, who received the nomination, stated, “We are honoured to be part of this prestigious group of Premium Suppliers and recognise above all, the confidence of our valued customers Schaeffler and Continental in the high quality of our services and products. We would like to thank every single GKN Sinter Metals employee involved for their commitment and passion.”
Thanks to its global footprint, GKN Sinter Metals supplies numerous Schaeffler and Continental locations worldwide, including Brazil, China, Germany, Italy, India and the US, with a wide variety of automotive parts made from conventional Powder Metallurgy (PM) and Metal Injection Moulding (MIM) processes.
