For the second consecutive year, Festo is rewarding outstanding suppliers with the Festo Supplier Elite Award. The GKN Sinter Metals plant in Bruneck, Italy, received the prestigious award for fully meeting all operational and strategic requirements and is thus ranged among the top 30 of more than 700 of Festo’s suppliers.
“Receiving this award from Festo as an Elite supplier is a great honour. It validates all the hard work by our employees to produce quality products, and our commitment to our customers to be partners in creating innovative solutions,” stated Sales Director Jürgen Neumair, who attended the award ceremony on behalf of GKN Sinter Metals.
GKN Sinter Metals is a major supplier to customers from the automotive industry but has shared a long-term relationship with Festo for decades. As a leading provider of pneumatic and electrical automation technology, GKN supplies Festo with sintered bearings for handling systems.
