The Daimler Supplier Award 2018 for the procurement unit of Trucks & Buses is given in three categories: Quality, Innovation and Partnership. The prestigious trophy is only awarded to one enterprise in each category at the awards ceremony.
For the Daimler Supplier Award, there are two suppliers for the Daimler procurement unit Global Procurement Trucks & Buses that did not receive the prestigious trophy in the category of “Partnership” in the award, but were nominated for the honor and had high hopes for the award. Both enterprises achieved great things and were nevertheless still beaten in the homestretch: Brakes India and Isringhausen therefore more than deserve to be honored now when looking back. The quotes from Dr. Marcus Schoenenberg, Vice President Global Procurement Trucks & Buses, Daimler AG, speak for themselves.
" Brakes India’s special tipper vehicle brakes were the first in Indian industry and resulted in an increase of market share. Our partner’s brake portfolio fits our vehicles more than well. Brakes India is total solution provider who has demonstrated an undisputed urge to be with and grow with Daimler Trucks & Buses. "
Isringhausen GmbH & Co. KG
" When we at Daimler Trucks say ‘Please take a seat’, more than three-fourths of our Freightliner Cascadia customers choose Isringhausen seats. Their modular complete seats come as standard with great engineering expertise and product quality – and with a built-in 100% satisfaction guarantee. "
The winner for the category of Partnership is Fritz Winter Eisengießerei GmbH & Co. KG, which has developed and supplied crankcases at an extraordinary rate.
