Stuttgart/Leipzig. Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, honoured last year’s ten best suppliers at the Porsche works in Leipzig.
First prize went to Hella KGaA Hueck & Co. from Lippstadt, which manufactures innovative headlight systems for the sports car manufacturer.
Uwe-Karsten Städter, since April head of the newly created procurement position on the Porsche AG Board of Management said:
To cope with future challenges, Städter called on suppliers to make their company financially weather proof and to continue to bring their expertise and innovation to bear in helping to ensure that Porsche continues to be capable of providing quality and delivery reliability of the highest order. In international studies, the sports car brand constantly excels in terms of its outstanding quality.
The Zuffenhausen company wants to emulate these successes with the new generation of the legendary 911 as well. Supplier partners, responsible for approximately 80 percent of the value creation, have an important role to play in ensuring quality.
In addition to Hella KGaA Hueck & Co, Porsche honored a further nine suppliers with the Porsche Supplier Award 2011 in recognition of their top-notch performance.
