Assmann bestows supplier award

As part of Assmann's philosophy of continuous improvement, the Melle-based office-furniture manufacturer scrutinises its procurement management track record at the end of each and every business year.

Alongside material management and purchasing processes, an internal project team also examines the delivery and service quality of key suppliers. After winning in 2001 and 2002, Hettich now for the third time ranks first among the 20 top suppliers for 2010. The official award presentation took place on 15 March 2011 at Assmann's Training and Exhibition Centre.
