FACC honors premium suppliers
For the 14th time we have honored ourtop suppliers with the FACC "Supplier Excellence Awards" in gold, silver, bronze and the "Special Performance Award".
Over 190 key suppliers took part in the FACC Supplier Conference at the "Messezentrum Ried" on the 9th of May. The highlight of our supplier conference was the presentation of the 14th "Supplier Excellenze Awards" for exemplary supplier performance.
This year we look back on 30 years of FACC history - 30 years in which we increased our headcount from 102 to 3.500 and our sales from 6 million to 589.2 million. However, this development would not have been possible without the successful cooperation and partnership with our suppliers. In order to highlight the performance of our best partners, we have awarded the FACC "Supplier Excellence Awards" in gold, silver, bronze and the "Special Performance Award".
Within the scope of the FACC Supplier Conference, CEO Robert Machtlinger presented the business strategy of the enterprise and emphasized the importance of quality, operative excellence, social responsibility, as well as genuine partnership in supplier management. The conference was an opportunity for all participants to understand the requirements of the market and the end customers, to mutually adjust objectives, and to adequately honor the performances of the best supplier partners.
The conference was an excellent forum to strengthen our supplier relationships and to communicate the most important strategic priorities ensuring a powerful partnership. A strong supply chain is key to our business activities as a recognized technology partner for the global aerospace industry. I am very happy that so many supplier partners joined this important conference. Further events will follow so we can shape the mobility of the future together.
