For the fruitful collaboration with our suppliers, frequent and constructive communication is essential. Highlight of the event was the presentation of the Jungheinrich Production Supplier Award 2016.
According to the event's motto "More Speed. More Flexibility. More Value. 2017" we have informed more than 70 guests from more than 50 companies in workshops and talks about Jungheinrich's strategy, current developments and upcoming projects. By keeping previous year's motto we emphasized our strategy that is focused on durability and sustainability. The motto also symbolizes the goals of our company concerning speed, flexibility, quality and value. In his key note about Jungheinrich's strategy Dr. Oliver Lücke, member of the Board of Management (Engineering), especially focused on technology and the expectations towards our suppliers. Afterwards the central sectors Purchasing, Quality and Logistics together presented the supply chain strategy, followed by lectures about the Moosburg plant and its successful expansions, a guided tour through the new production lines for EFG & VFG as well as technical presentations about the topics "Cost Engineering", "Quality" and "Logistics".
The eventful day came to a closing highlight with the award ceremony. As a strong company, we need strong suppliers. Especially quality and reliability are significant parameters for the evaluation of our partners' performance. The prize was awarded in five categories derived from our main product groups. We honored two winning supplieres in each category. By initiating this award, we want to show our appreciation for the excellent performance of our best suppliers, whilst also encouraging our other suppliers to provide the best possible services and products at any given time and help shaping upcoming challenges and the growth of Jungheinrich - in order to be able to join the competition for the next awards.
