Suppliers of the Year 2017 Awarded

  • 550 international guests at Supplier Day 2018 held by the Continental Automotive Group
  • 16 companies rewarded as suppliers of the year, with special prizes for quality and innovation

 
The Automotive Group of Continental has awarded prizes to its Suppliers of the Year for 2017. The awards ceremony took place during Supplier Day 2018, attended by 550 guests from across the world at the Estrel Congress Center, Berlin. The fact that a robot was in charge of handing out the cocktails at the evening’s prize gala was perfectly in keeping with the forward-looking approach of the supplier day. The slogan for the event, “Supplier of Choice 2030”, had been deliberately chosen to reflect a dual objective. Continental aims to strengthen and build on its position as the supplier of choice for automobile manufacturers. At the same time, challenges to be overcome collaboratively in the future were emphasized. 

 

A prestigious prize: Supplier of the Year has been awarded for ten years now

At its roughly 100 production sites worldwide, Continental’s Automotive divisions processed around 140 billion components in 2017. These were manufactured by more than 3,500 series suppliers. Continental Automotive performs a comprehensive, systematic evaluation of its strategic suppliers every year. The central criteria here are quality, technology, supply, costs and purchasing conditions. Outstanding achievements have been rewarded with the Supplier of the Year awards since 2008.
