Kennametal receives BMW supplier award

November 25, 2014

Kennametal Inc. has announced that it was among three suppliers recognised at the 2014 BMW Supplier Innovation Awards in the productivity category. Kennametal, the only tooling supplier to be nominated for the award, was also recognised for more than 30 years of partnership with the German automaker.

Among reasons BMW cited for the honour, stated Kennametal, was innovative new tooling that increased productivity in the manufacture of engine blocks at BMW’s Steyr, Austria production facility. Kennametal added that it devotes an engineered solutions team to collaborate with BMW on such productivity-enhancing refinements.

“We are honoured to have been recognised among more than 200 suppliers at BMW’s supplier awards,” stated Gérald Goubau, Vice President and General Manager of Kennametal’s tooling business. “It is a great affirmation and reminder of our mission to provide innovation that customers value; something we strive to do every day.”

The award is designed to pay tribute to the achievements of the BMW Group’s suppliers and recognises key partners who play a crucial role in the successful implementation of new developments.
