ContiTech Vibration Control announced its suppliers of the year for 2017 at the Hannover Messe. A total of five candidates were selected for their outstanding quality performance and dependability across all Vibration Control locations: Turkish ball bearing specialist ORS, raw material and technology supplier DuPont and development partner Power-Cast were among the top suppliers, alongside magnetic systems manufacturer Brugger and Slovakian partner Tonro. “All five of these suppliers have performed exceptionally well over the past year, making a significant contribution to our success as a company,” says Kai Frühauf, head of the ContiTech Vibration Control business unit. “Reliable partnerships ensure that everything goes smoothly in our day-to-day global operations, and enables ContiTech to meet quality standards that we pass on to our customers,” adds Frühauf.

The selected companies were chosen from a pool of 185 candidates compiled based on a complex assessment conducted by ContiTech. The winners will hold the title of Supplier of the Year 2017 for the next year. Companies such as DuPont and Power-Cast in particular are a perfect fit for ContiTech’s international profile: “The winners are global players and provide us with goods and services of the same high standard of quality across the world,” explains Hicran Hayik Koller, lead buyer for raw materials and chemicals at ContiTech Vibration Control. “Their efforts create the perfect foundations for us to create our high-quality products,” continues Hayik-Koller. Christoph Dudek, director of purchasing and SCM, agrees: “Vibration Control is only able to meet the demanding light-weight design standards that apply to engine and chassis mounting systems and can only continue to produce innovative products by partnering with modern companies.”
