Bomag honours its best suppliers every year. This year everything was a little different: due to the resurgence of Covid-19 infections in Europe, the winners were honoured in web conferences in October and November.
“We had planned to host an event for the Supplier Awards in late summer. It would have been too good to be true, but unfortunately the second Covid wave threw a spanner in the works,” says Jens Gick, Director Global Sourcing, and emphasizes: “Despite Covid, one thing was never in doubt for us: We wanted to give our top suppliers the high recognition they deserve again this year because of their exceptional performance.” “We know that quality and smooth supply chains are the results of close collaboration. We were able to rely 100% on the award-winning suppliers and partners and to pursue innovative approaches with them. Our partnership with our excellent network of suppliers ensures that we are successful and continuously meet the highest quality standards,” says Volker Laux, Vice President Supply Chain.
The web conferences could not replace the usual festive atmosphere. It was nonetheless still possible to feel the celebratory mood of the happy winners on the screens. All major suppliers from Germany and Italy were evaluated. The nominated companies all displayed above-average performance.
