Bosch Group nominates Utz as their Preferred Supplier

As a manufacturer of warehouse and transport containers, pallets and thermoformed work-piece carriers consisting of recyclable synthetics, Utz has been supplying Bosch subsidiaries worldwide for several decades. The largest possible purchasing volume is to be processed via “Preferred Suppliers” within the framework of a new purchasing strategy at the Bosch Group, aimed to simplify the entire procurement process.

These suppliers are to be given preference, especially concerning enquiries for the implementation of projects. Utz, with its offices in Schüttorf, has now been nominated as the Preferred Supplier for the entire Bosch Group regarding synthetic packaging (load carriers).

As a minimum requirement, Preferred Suppliers must prove certification in accordance with DIN EN ISO 9001. In the Certificate of Award, Bosch expressly indicates that these suppliers have to be assessed as extremely competent and efficient. By granting the award, Bosch wants to motivate its suppliers to continue intensifying their cooperation with the entire corporate group.

Jan Sünneker, Managing Director of Sales for Utz Germany, says the following about the award: "As a Preferred Supplier for Bosch, we do not only regard ourselves as endorsed in the quality of our products and product developments. Our customer service, adherence to delivery dates and great cooperation with our contact partners at Bosch have contributed to this award, of which we are more than proud!"
