Once a year, the automobile manufacturer presents the Daimler Supplier Award for above-average performance and partnership collaboration with its suppliers. Performance is measured in terms of quality, costs, delivery reliability and innovation power.
“We feel honored by the appreciation that we have received through this award – from one of our largest customers. The automotive industry requires a high degree of flexibility and quality. We stand for a solution-oriented cooperation and partnership with reliability, quality and innovation coming first. Daimler is a very demanding partner,” says Klemens Rethmann, CEO Rhenus.
