"Supplier Of The Year 2020": Continental Selects Best Suppliers

Partnership and cooperation are in higher demand than they have ever been. Continental has awarded the "Supplier of the Year" honours to the technology company's best suppliers in 2020 as a result of this. Continental's Automotive Technologies and Vitesco Technologies group sectors have given the award to their strategic series suppliers for their outstanding performance.

"In these extremely challenging times, open and trusting teamwork with our suppliers has gained further importance. We value the work of our suppliers and are aware of their role in our performance," said Nikolai Setzer, Continental CEO and Chairman of the Automotive Board.

"Together, we set ourselves the goal every year of meeting the widest range of customer requirements in the best possible way with targeted solutions. This was and certainly is a major challenge this year. We honour our suppliers, who set the highest standards in quality, efficiency and safety, as Suppliers of the Year!"

Last year, the global supplier network of around 900 strategic suppliers provided 100 production sites of Continental Automotive Technologies and Vitesco Technologies with around 140,000 different part numbers and a total processed volume of around 165 billion individual components. The 12 award winners impressed the Continental jury in terms of quality, costs, commitment, and purchasing conditions.

"The global situation with the coronavirus pandemic, chip shortages and rising raw material prices continues to pose major challenges for us and our supplier network. We would like to thank all our suppliers for their cooperative collaboration in these challenging times and are delighted to recognize the 12 best with the Supplier of the Year award,” added Günter Fella, head of purchasing at Continental Automotive. "We are also paying particular attention to quality this year, which is why we are once again presenting our special ‘Quality’ Award." In 2020, this goes to GRUPO CROPU, a manufacturer of forged components for the automotive industry.
