MIDLAND, Mich.—The Bosch Group has named Dow Corning Corp. a preferred supplier in the Elastomers and Thermosetting Plastics materials group.
Dow Corning said Bosch assigns the preferred supplier status once a year by to the best of its 4,000 suppliers, which enables Dow Corning to be integrated even earlier in Bosch's product development process.
“Dow Corning's performance in the fields of quality, innovation and strategic collaboration made this award possible,” said Simge Erkmen, Bosch Buyer for Bosch GmbH's Automotive Business.
In Bosch's recent annual performance assessment, Dow Corning said it scored top marks in the categories of purchasing, quality, logistics, cooperation and technical competence.
“Being awarded this status by Bosch is a huge achievement since they have very high standards and expectations for their suppliers,” said Klaus Hoffmann, Dow Corning Regional President for the European Union.
“We have been working with Bosch for many years, and this award is a great recognition and motivation for the entire Dow Corning team. We are now looking to further develop new and more effective products and technologies in a joint effort with Bosch.”
