As an international automotive and industrial supplier, Schaeffler maintains a supply chain that spans the globe. Thousands of companies supply production materials and services to Schaeffler’s 70-plus factories in 50 countries worldwide. As Chief Operating Officer Andreas Schick explained: “We believe that success in business goes hand in hand with a duty to act responsibly towards the environment, people and society.” That is why Schaeffler seeks out relationships with suppliers who are committed to the same goals, acting as true partners for performance.
Andreas Schick presented awards to Schaeffler’s top-performing supply partners at a recent digital edition of the company’s Supplier Day, which was attended by over 500 representatives of strategic subcontractors. “We and our partners are committed to innovation and state-of-the-art technology across our entire supply chain,” he said. “We aim to create a sustainable long-term partner network with our strategically important suppliers.” Seventeen supply partners received the Schaeffler Supplier Award in recognition of their excellence as partners for performance. NMC Dynaplas, Ltd. was the only Canadian recipient of the 2021 Schaeffler Supplier Award.
