We want to work with them to develop beneficial solutions for our customers.”
Among the criteria for the award were supplier evaluations from worldwide Bosch plants. "For us, Balluff excels in its strong customer focus, manifest above all in the networking of our companies both electronically and organizationally", says Lars Nordström, Director Global Purchasing Maintenance, Repair and Operations at Bosch, describing the cooperation. Also recognized were the strong global networks of Balluff with its production, logistics and advisory network, as well as the high motivation of the entire Key Account Team.
