Festo wins prestigious award from Brammer award recognises ‘Festo’s excellence in supplier relationship management’

29 November, 2010

 

Brammer UK, supplier of maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) products and services, has presented Festo GB with its 2010 Award for excellence in supplier relationship management. The awards ceremony formed part of Brammer’s annual Manufacturing Forum, held this year at the Ironbridge Gorge Museum near Telford, and was hosted by Alastair Campbell, the former Labour spokesman and communications strategist.

During the build-up to the award presentation, Alastair Campbell stated, “Brammer works with many of the world’s leading engineering component manufacturers, enabling it to offer customers an unrivalled choice of over 1 million individual products. Managing this level of supply chain complexity demands strong working relationships with supply partners. Over the past 12 months, one global organisation has stood out for its innovation and continuous improvement in supporting Brammer in the UK and that is Festo.”
 
The award was jointly presented by Alastair Campbell and Ian Ritchie, managing director of Brammer UK, and accepted on behalf of Festo by Mike Gaffney, deputy managing director of Festo GB, and Stuart Gittins, Festo’s distribution end user manager.
 
Although Stuart Gittins has overall managerial responsibility for supplier relationships, including Brammer, he was keen to point out that the award actually marks recognition of a huge team effort. “Festo brings a large number of new products to market every year, which means that helping Brammer maintain its position as a specialist, highly-focused supplier involves a truly collaborative and multi-disciplined approach to distribution,” he said. “We operate very much as a team at every stage of the supply process, from initial discussions and procurement strategies, through internal product training, to external customer support.”
