BBG North America receives Webasto Supplier Award 2016
- Exemplary longstanding global partnership
Mindelheim/Germany and Oxford/Michigan, 19. July 2016. BBG North America LP, Oxford/Michigan, which was established in 2014, received the North America Supplier Award 2016 from automotive supplier Webasto. The award was presented at the beginning of July on the occasion of the Supplier Day in Meadow Brook Hall at the Webasto Roof Systems plant located in Rochester Hills/Michigan. Approximately 200 suppliers of series production parts, tools, machinery and plants had been invited. Two of them received an award. BBG delivers molds for the encapsulation of car sunroofs with polyurethane (PUR) as well as mold carrier systems to a large number of production plants operated by the Webasto group.
Bernhard Satzger, general manager, accepted the award on behalf of the North American subsidiary of BBG, the manufacturer of molds, machinery and plants, who is headquartered at Mindelheim/Germany.
Innovative products and expertise in the field of PUR and composites
The award was presented by Marc Majors, purchasing manager at Webasto. In his laudatory speech, he explained that Webasto in particular appreciates the innovative BBG products and the expertise that the PUR and composites specialist contributes to the development of sliding glass roofs. Moreover, he praised the international presence and the comprehensive service offered by the BBG group and described the longstanding global partnership of the two companies as being exemplary. Prior to establishing its North American subsidiary, BBG had managed the customer Webasto together with a local sales partner from its headquarters at Mindelheim/Germany
Bernhard Satzger, general manager of BBG North America, had not expected to receive an award: "This comes as a real surprise, we have only existed for two years after all." He passed on the praise right away to the BBG staff: "The Webasto Supplier Award 2016 is a special recognition and appreciation of BBG as a Webasto partner. The award is presented to all members of the BBG group. At the same time, it is meant to serve as motivation for future cooperation and is an incentive for us to continue to give our very best to strengthen and continuously expand the manufacturing plant in the USA."
