During the Suppliers' Day in June, FAULHABER again presented an award for the best performance of a supplier. The recipient this year is iC-Haus GmbH from Bodenheim. They supply FAULHABER with integrated circuits for the control of motors, encoders and other components. "We have been working together for more than 15 years. Over this long period of time, iC-Haus has always proven to be a very competent partner, both in joint development as well in series deliveries", emphasises Jochen Hasenmaier, director of purchasing at FAULHABER.
"The fact that we were chosen Best Supplier is an honour for us and motivation for the future", says Dr. Heiner Flocke, executive director of iC-Haus. In selecting the recipient of the supplier award, performance in the areas of innovative capability, project cooperation, technical equipment, service quality, delivery reliability and accessibility are evaluated. iC-Haus excelled in all areas.
This year's Suppliers' Day was held under the motto "Growing Together". The topics covered at the event included, among others, the possibility to respond to the requirements of the market through joint strategies and to exploit the growth potential for all involved parties. "In addition to competitive prices with zero-defect quality, customers expect ever shorter delivery times. We can achieve these only if the logistical processes are closely interwoven and the latest methods for those processes are used", explains Jochen Hasenmaier. "We therefore expect the same traits from our suppliers that allow us to score points with our customers: Innovative strength and willingness to cooperate.“ The Suppliers' Day and award ceremony are part of a sustainable quality and efficiency strategy from FAULHABER. Suppliers' Day participants value the event as a practically oriented trade conference and forum for professional and personal exchange. This year, 120 participants from 65 companies in Germany and Europe made the trip to Schönaich.
