Waiblingen, 6/15/2020 | Company press release
STIHL has honored five companies with its 2019 Supplier of the Year award. Among all STIHL suppliers around the world, these five stood out in particular on account of their fantastic characteristics in terms of quality, technology, innovation, service and price-performance ratio. In his speech thanking winners, Martin Schwarz, STIHL Executive Board Member for Manufacturing and Materials, underlined the importance of partnerships in which the parties can rely on one another. “We value the close and proactive exchange of ideas that takes place in a spirit of mutual trust, and build on the boldness and creativity of these ideas in developing solutions for the wide range of challenges faced by the STIHL world,” said Martin Schwarz in his address, which was transmitted to the award-winning companies as a digital video message this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
STIHL has been honoring the best suppliers for their outstanding performance every year since 1990. To date a total of 109 suppliers have received this distinction, some of them multiple times.
